‘Nurse moonlighting okay’

MEDICAL Association of Zambia (MAZ) president Aaron Mujajati says there is nothing wrong with nurses or medical doctors having two jobs provided one is not stealing man-hours from the government.
“ What we discourage is using government time to do other jobs,” Dr Mujajati said.
He explained that doctors and nurses have unique schedules that allow them to have almost a week of off-days that they can use as they wish.
Dr Mujajati was reacting to a statement by Ndola acting district commissioner Taphen Muloongo who raised alarm over some medical personnel, mainly nurses, who are employed by two institutions and are drawing two salaries.
At a press briefing in Ndola last week, Mr Muloongo warned the ‘culprits’ of necessary disciplinary measures.
