Kalomo suspended Nurse speaks out

Filed under: Breaking News |

A Kalomo male Nurse who was suspended by Health Minister who is also Mansa Central PF Member of Parliament Dr. Chitalu Chilufy for refusing to treat a patient because she didn’t speak Tonga says he leaves everything in God’s hands.

The male Nurse has however charged that he is shocked that a Mrs. Tembo who was filming him and confronting him was using bemba he does not understand.

“Yes I was suspended, but I leave everything in God’s hands. You know we are in a small world. I was doing my job which I love so dearly. This woman came (Mrs. Tembo) and used Bemba language of which I don’t understand. Not that I didn’t want to attend to her, I told her at first to use English because every one speaks English or understands the language, she refused ” he narrated.

“I requested Mrs. Tembo to bring someone who can traslate what she was saying in Bemba into English, her voice was already on top. I then used English again to state that, Madam, I am sorry I dont understand Bemba, can you kindly use English or Tonga because I’m conversant in the two language’s, she removed her phone and started filming that I refused to attend to her unless if she used Tonga. I was shocked, I tried to stop her filming but she went ahead to say I will make your life difficult ” he narrated.

      • Unless you didn’t view the video clip, the woman’s voice in the clip was actually speaking English. So she knows English. There could be more that transpired than just the statements we are reading.
        I hope it ends well, especially for the nurse. Whether he truly refused to attend to woman or not, I pray that he is spared and given another chance. To err is human. I’m sure he will have learnt from this experience.

      • @memphis shew, when a feeble mind fails to express itself, it resorts to insults. Do not step on the run way if you do not have what it takes.
        In a sea of hate, you cannot think straight. You’re blinded by hate, tribal hatred. Good luck in this 21st century

  3. It is un professional for a trained personnel to act the way that nurse acted , he has no calibre of beeing a nurse what ever transpired he was not supposed to conduct himself in such a away.
    Stories of this type are only found in this one province ,something must be wrong with some people there. Last time we heard a certain political party leader stopping people to speak a particular language in the province , to me it is the indication of low esteem for such people.
    We also learnt of poisoning people of a particular tribe really evil is condoned with some illiterate people and bigotic people who only think of themselves.

  4. As health workers let us accommodate the weaknesses of our patients. I hope other hard core tribalists will learn a lesson from this tribalist.

  5. There is no legal law in Zambia that says all citizens of this mother land should understand and speak all the dialects found in Zambia. If the medical practitioner could not understand the language used by a client and provided a solution to remedy that scenario by asking for either usage of another of the tongues or better still translate. So before anyone lifts an accusing finger please do your investigations….

  6. Suspended by the Minister? What is the role of the Permanent Secretary? When a mother died at Chilenje hospital after being denied attention the Minister was quiet but he want to be seen to be active over a trivial matter? This is totally unfair. If the nurse is fired then we shall take it as a tribal “war”.

    Please Bwana Minister, let the HR, under the Permanent Secretary deal with this issue – you were too fast to move in even before the administration could have chance to deal with the matter.

    Mr. Tembo, the husband was in attendance. He should have advised his wife the be calm and not divert attention. She was heard speaking English and threatening the nurse. How do you think a threatened person can serve well? Madam, do not seek service from people who do not speak you mother tongue. I can only urge you to grow up!

  8. Upuba BA nurse you can’t pretend not to understand Bemba,Nyanja or any other Zambian language unless you are a foreigner infact a refugee.

    Am an easterner but I can ofcourse understand one or two words in any Zambian language. Besides Nyanja is widely used all over Zambia n you should have switched to it. Manje waona what you have fallen into. Wa nyeka munzi
