Nurses visit the office of David Makhura, Prime Minister of Gauteng – SABC News

The Democratic Nursing Institute of South Africa (Denosa) in Gauteng will lead a district of nurses to the offices of David Makhura, the Prime Minister of Gauteng, on Wednesday.

They will also go to the Ministry of Finance and the Ministry of Health in Gauteng to hand over a memorandum of complaint.

Denosa says that this is due to many months of non-payment by some nurses after community service, that nurses in community service have not participated in the community service and have not been able to fill vacant nursing positions at the Ministry of Health.

The Nurses’ Union says the march will also demand the immediate dismissal of CFO Lerato Madyo.

Earlier this month, Denosa in Gauteng briefed the media on its three-month non-payment scheme for nurses.

Young nurses who perform compulsory one-year community service under the auspices of the Gauteng Ministry of Health continue to suffer the stigma and prejudice they face from the ward, which has not paid their salaries for more than three months.

This is despite having had some contact with the department and drawing the attention of the district prime minister to the matter.

The video below describes Denosa’s plans to take on unpaid nurses’ salaries:
