Cabral Libii, Member of Parliament for the PCRN party has chided government for turning a blind eye to protesting medical doctors.
This comes after a protest by some trained health personnel seeking recruitment into the public service.
To Cabral, the silence on government’s part, is a show of bad faith, irresponsibility and wickedness, given that the over 600 trained medical Doctors remain unemployed as the medical sector in Cameroon is in dire need for a radical boost.
“600 doctors abandoned in the streets when our hospitals lack everything. Associating irresponsibility with wickedness is the new feat of Cameroonian authorities” he wrote on Twitter.
The Member of Parliament for the PCRN has called on the Government to put the actions that have been outlined in the state Institutions training establishments into practice.
One of these outlined element as required is to integrate the trained doctors almost immediately into the public service as soon as they are done with their programs.
Most of the Doctors who demonstrated infront of the Prime Minister’s office were trained surgeons and Dentists.
Before taking to the streets to protest against their non integration, the doctors say several appeals had been sent to the appropriate authorities at the Ministry of Health about their predicament.
The Minister however said it was not within his competence to handle their case.
“We have filed a hearing with the Ministry of Public Health. We were told that the minister is incompetent to solve this problem… They also explained to us that the demands to be made are at the level of the Prime Minister’s office” revealed one of the protesting doctors.
