As nurses and midwives commemorated Inter1 Midwives Day on Thursday, May 5, under the theme ‘100 years of progress’, Thokozani Steven Chaguza was named Midwife Nurse of the year for Nkhata Bay District.

Chaguza joined the best midwives from different districts across the country who gathered at Santhe Primary School in Kasungu District to commemorate the day.

Commenting on the development, Health Promotion Officer for Nkhata Bay District Council, Christopher Singini, extended the district council’s congratulatory message to Chaguza, saying it was not easy to be named a Nurse and Midwife of the year for a particular district.

Singini said members of the management committee of the District Health Office (DHO) for Nkhata Bay named Chaguza as the best midwife for performing tremendously in his profession.

"To be named the best midwife is not simple; one needs to showcase the best performance in all professional areas such as behavior, dressing, presentation, interaction with clients, time management, and ethical professionalism among others," said Singini.

He added the DHO has since prepared a certificate of honor to be presented to Chaguza.

In his remarks, Chaguza said was humbled and honored to be named Midwife for the year for Nkhata Bay District and pledged he would continue striving for excellence in his profession.

“Last year, I was promoted from a Junior Nurse to Senior Midwife Technician. I, therefore, thank the management and commend support and teamwork by my colleagues that have resulted in my recognition,” said Chaguza.

The Inter1 Midwife Day is commemorated annually on 5th May.
