Some of the issues contained in her plan of action include development and implementation of the upgrading programme for nurse technicians and fundraise for scholarships.

Ngoma said she will ensure the establishment of wellness centre for treatment, care, and support for the nurses.

The new nurses’ leader said she was very happy to be back at NONM as a president, an organisation she was headed.

Ngoma said she will advocate for housing for iron sheets and cement project from Malawi Government in order to encourage nurses own their own houses.

I don’t know what is this organization doing apart from kuponda chiphazi ma nurse technicians. Do you know that these technicians are changing profession because of this kind of leadership. A bona nanu mungoyang’ana ndi kusekerera this organization wasting our money through kukhomerera because I’ll wishes for these technician. For a technician to go to a degree level has to spend not less than seven years kkkk. Bola sindine nurse kkkk

Good lesson to Gama, akuti usiye matama but I do not have a problem with a male heading an institution dominated by ladies. Problem with ladies amayamba kulimbanirana amuna. The truth of the matter is that nurses have been known to be promiscuous . Ndiye Dorothy amaithatu,congrats
