HSAs shunning assigned areas

23

The Human Resources Service committee of the Dowa District Council has expressed concern over most Health Surveillance Assistants’ (HSAs) conduct of not staying in their assigned areas in the district.

A report to the council for the meeting held on 20th October, 2017, has recommended that the HSAs should be given letters directing them to move to their catchment areas  as soon as possible for  good service delivery.

According to the report, there are some officers who have been absenting themselves from work without giving valid reasons.

The report  has recommended  the council to form an enquiry committee that will investigate the cause of their absenteeisms leading to the start of processing HSAs’ retrenchment and calling the concerned officers for hearing by the Appointment and Disciplinary Committee before terminating their services to avoid future problems interms of lawsuits.

The report also notes that other Human Resources personnel from other sectors are not willing to attend Human Resources  despite the council being devolved recommending to the Dowa District Commissioner, Fannie Msimuko, to talk to the heads of sectors whose officers do not attend Human Resources Service committee meetings and remind them that the council is now devolved.

  1. It’s not only in Dowa but it’s all over the districts.These HSAs are not given hardship or house allowances,simple.Why beating the bush?work as you earn.mbofyo-mbofyo apa.

  2. those are the fruits of having cheap labour and poor governance this kob is for community nurses not these so called hsa vinu ivo keek them out of the system as u did with auxiriary nurses panopa tikupuma bwino ife anamwino kkkkkk

  3. Everyone needs development in those catchment area kulibe electricity, no good roads,no clean water. Should they be denied access to TV just because they were assigned to field? If they can manage to cycle and be present at there workplace let them stay in town.

  4. The ones who run away from their assigned villages r people who r related to senior officers at the district coz analembedwanso mwachinyengo, mokokeledwa ndimabwana aku HR, and other senior officers.

  6. Am pleased with all of the above comments. Wats the difference between teachers& HSAs? They all deserve hardship allowance + accommodation. Apo biiiii! Community isova.

  7. Do u expect someone to work properly were there is no accomodation ask them and u hear their side of the story give answers to their problems and u will see no excuse apo bii akhalabe muma trading

  8. Thats very true, I thought maybe its the way they are advised. For instance, most HSAs here live in Mponela leaving their assigned areas thirsting for their services. Do something please, achotseni kuma TC azidzatphunzitsa za ukhondo kuno kumidzi!!!
