Unpromoted health workers stop govt from conducting walk in interviews to recruit new health workers

By Chisomo Phiri

A total of 122 unpromoted health workers have obtained an injunction through Industrial Relations Court (IRC) in Mzuzu stopping the government from conducting interviews aimed at recruiting new health workers across the country.

The interviews were slated for tomorrow Thursday January 18, through Saturday, January 20, 2024.

The unpromoted health workers who are employed in government and Christian Health Association of Malawi (CHAM) facilities are demanding promotion from the government before it employs new staff.

The employed health workers add that the government is being barred from going ahead to conduct these interviews in the wake of revelations that it had put a condition that those already employed in its facilities or CHAM are not eligible to attend the interviews even if they are qualified for such positions, which they argue is discriminatory.

Meanwhile the court injunction, has indicated that the applicants should file an inter-partes application within 14 days.

Among others, the interviews are aimed at filling positions of senior Medical Officers, Nurses, Clinical officers and Radiographers.
