Nurses union contests job vacancies

Menongue – The provincial secretary of the National Nurses Union of Angola in southeast Cuando Cubango, Adelino David Moises, said on Thursday, he was disgruntled about the short number of vacancies (six) for graduated nurses out of the overall (76) vacancies made available for public tender.

This discontent was expressed during a meeting held Thursday, in the hall of the General Hospital of Cuando Cubango, where the members participated, visibly unmotivated.

Adelino David Moises defended that taking into account the reduced number of vacancies made available, at least 40 should be for nurses and 30 for physicians, ase there are several nurses graduated long time ago, who are able to secure medical assistance to the people.

However, he said, the recommendations will be addressed to the local government, with a view to revert the current picture.
