The Ministry of Health has vowed to deal ruthlessly with the Mamobi Polyclinic for sacking a nurse who wore hijab to work.

The Nurse, Habiba Ahmed said her explanation to her superiors over her decision to wear her hijab was ignored despite making reference to the Health Minister’s directive on the matter.

She narrated that the principal nurse at the hospital earlier last week issued a directive to all Muslim medical officers not to wear their hijab to work.

Meanwhile, the Health Ministry has served notice that it will conduct through investigations into the matter and sanctions will be applied where necessary.

Public Relations Officer of the Ministry, Tony Goodman, expressed disappointment in the development and promised to follow up.

He admitted that due to the processes such directives go through before reaching the various health facilities nationwide, it is possible that the letters may not have reached some medical centres.

He warned that the Ministry will not condone such blatant disregard of the rules “because we have issued express directives instructing them to allow people to practice their religion in their own way and not in this manner.”

Mr. Goodman sympathized with the Habiba and expressed surprise that “some managers in our facilities are still behaving this way.”

“It’s been read in the media, that this is what the Ministry of Health has said and I have seen a lot of circular on this so anybody who will say that I have not heard this and for that matter, my boss has not written to me so I am not going to adhere to it is just trying to be mischievous about this,” he added.
