    Buhera protest World Vision recruitments


    MURAMBINDA – Residents of Murambinda Growth Point in Buhera are up in arms against World Vision for recruiting non-locals for six months contract jobs for distribution of food in the arid district.
    The locals who spoke to The Mirror on condition of anonymity said the advert clearly said that the contract jobs for field officers were for locals but they were surprised to realise that only one local was recruited while the rest of the new workers were from Chiredzi, Lupane, Bikita Zvishavane, Rusape, Gweru and Chipinge.
    They argued that the distribution of food was to be done in Buhera and therefore it is the people of Buhera who should benefit from the programme.
    World Vision communication manager, Andrew Shamu said those complaining must have misinterpreted the advert as local referred to any Zimbabwean as his organisation is international.
     "Unfortunately the advert was misinterpreted. World Vision is an International NGO and has positions that are opened for people within and outside the country hence this advert was specifically for local Zimbabweans. Besides this World Vision has a clear human resourcing procedure that involves transparent interviews," said Shamu.
    He said anyone from any part of Zimbabwe was eligible as long as that person proved to be a Zimbabwean. He said that more interviews are still to be conducted in other parts of Zimbabwe and people from Buhera were free to apply.
    Sources said most of the successful candidates are former World Vision employees. Interviews for the jobs were held at the World Vision offices at Murambinda on September 26, 2017.
    World Vision Zimbabwe Buhera (ADP) manager Patricia Mubvumi said she is on leave.
