Nurses hope for rap­port with new Health min­is­ter

Sunday Observer - - NEWS -

Swazi­land Nurses As­so­ci­a­tion Pres­i­dent Bheki Mamba said he had noth­ing much to say about the new Cab­i­net as it was not elected by the peo­ple.

He stated that the ma­jor­ity of the min­is­ters were those who were ap­pointed not Mem­bers of Par­lia­ment elected by peo­ple dur­ing the re­cent elec­tions.

Mamba be­lieved that the ap­pointed leg­is­la­tors who are now min­is­ters carry fewer man­dates from elec­torates. “If you can re­call how they con­ducted them­selves dur­ing Sibaya or even when they met the King at Mand­vulo; they raised lit­tle things which sug­gest they would serve the in­ter­est of the peo­ple,” Mamba ex­panded.

He said t he t wo f or ums gave Par­lia­men­tar­i­ans an op­por­tu­nity to men­tion how they would re­vive the ail­ing econ­omy. Mamba also men­tioned that he does not know new Health Min­is­ter Lizzy Nkosi’s back­ground but men­tioned that the main chal­lenge in the min­istry was short­age of drugs, equip­ment, staff as well as pa­tient’s food. He said the as­so­ci­a­tion would wait for the min­is­ter’s pol­icy and they are keen to see if she would con­sult with work­ers as she re­vives the min­istry.
