The health authorities in the central Mozambican province of Manica say they have taken disciplinary measures against staff and trainees who were caught playing around with social media on their mobile phones instead of caring for patients. Manica Provincial Governor Manuel Rodrigues visited the hospital in the provincial capital, Chimoio, and he came across two nurses and three trainees taking photos and laughing as they played with their phones. Patients were waiting to be seen, and the governor, irritated by what he had witnessed, demanded immediate disciplinary measures. Over the weekend, Manica Health Director Firmino Jaqueta told reporters that the three trainees, who are students at the Manica Health Training Institute, have been expelled from the hospital.
