Zimbabwean Nurse Suspended For Chanting Anti Zanu Pf Message On Social Media
Authorities here have suspended a nurse from employment after she allegedly criticised Zanu Pf for authoring the country’s agonising economic and political crisis.
In a letter written on 03 August 2018 to Senzeni Klaasen, Dr Lenos Samhere, the District Medical Officer at Beitbridge District Hospital accused the 47 year-old nurse, who is employed as Sister-In-Charge at Beitbridge District Hospital of misconduct after she was allegedly recorded in an audio clip circulated on social media uttering what hospital authorities considered to be some “abusive” words.
According to the purported audio clip, Klaasen allegedly accused Zanu Pf of causing the mass exodus of Zimbabweans who were going to neighbouring countries in search of greener pastures and seeking medical treatment in countries such as South Africa.
In suspending Klaasen, Samhere charged that he was implementing the provisions of the Health Service Regulations of 2006, which provides that a disciplinary authority may suspend from service a member who would have committed an act of misconduct or is subject to a criminal investigation or prosecution and whose continued attendance at work would seriously impair the proper administration or functioning of the Ministry of Health and Child Care.
Meanwhile, Klaasen has engaged lawyers from Zimbabwe Lawyers for Human Rights (ZLHR) after a Zimbabwe Republic Police officer reportedly called her relatives requesting to be furnished with information concerning the whereabouts of her children in a very suspicious manner.
In a letter written to the Officer in Charge at the Law and Order Section at Beitbridge Police Station, Klaasen’s lawyers Obey Shava and Tinomuda Shoko of ZLHR said they will hold a named police officer from the Law and Order Section at Beitbridge Police Station responsible should anything happen to their client’s children including their client, who has been receiving death threats from some unknown people.
