"Work is still in progress on a government to government agreement with the South Sudanese Government on a bilateral agreement on export of health workers," Zimbabwe’s Minister of Health and Child Care, David Parirenyatwa told lawmakers last week.

"Should the Government to Government agreement be finalised, such issues will be looked into with advice from the Attorney General’s office,” he added.

The matter, the minister said, with be discussed with South Sudan at an appropriate time.

"The Ministry of Foreign Affairs, through their embassies, would be able to give guidance on security matters. On how many Zimbabweans have taken this offer, none through the Ministry of Health and Child Care," he further explained.

Meanwhile, are Parirenyatwa if any advert was to be sent out, would be discussed by the Ministry of Health and Child Care and the Health Services Board, guided by consultations at the appropriate level.

"Both the Ministry of Health and Child Care and the South Sudanese Embassy are not aware of the advert in the media inviting State Registered Nurses to seek employment in South Sudan,” the minister stressed.

“This was only brought to the attention of the Ministry through the question from Parliament," he added.

    How will the government pay these Zimbabweans in hard currency when it cannot pay its employees in local currency. Those in the position of power took all money in the public coffer to their houses expecting Troika to release some fund so that TGONU would start afresh. A big mistake, not the government would collapse at our watch.
