The nurse, Patricia Malichi who defended herself saying the photo was leaked by her ex-lover, made the blunder late last year and the photo attracted mixed reactions as it made headlines on social media.
Speaking during a full council meeting on Monday, Deputy Council Chairperson, Akima Chipwatali said the nurse deserves a stiffer punishment because what she did infringed on the rights of every woman in the country.
“The interdiction has come at a right time and I feel happy that there is progress in this case.
Government instructed that every woman must give birth at a health facility and what this nurse did by exposing a fellow woman’s nudity in a labour ward was uncalled for.
What she did will discourage other women to give birth at a health center. She deserves a stiff punishment,” said Chipwatali.
Director of Health and Social Services, Dr. Gift Kawalazira said he was happy with the development and hoped the law will take its course, so that future perpetrators take a lesson.
He then said he would make sure he is involved in every step of the case to make sure that all ends well.

Recently, A 29-year-old nurse is receiving heat for allegedly recording naked women while they are in labour inside maternity wards and sending the clips to her boyfriend.
The nurse identified as Kundai Chitate who works at Masvingo general hospital in Zimbabwe allegedly recorded screaming and groaning patients in labour and sent the audio clips to her boyfriend identified as Tichafara Mugumbate.
Report has it that apart from sending audio clips of women in labour, Kundai was also in the habit of sending her nudes to Tichafara.
The nurse was exposed by the South Africa-based ex-boyfriend after they broke up two weeks ago.Reacting to being exposed, Kundai said: The recording of the patient screaming in labour… I sent it to him by mistake.
As for the nudes, they are mine yes. I used to send him when we were still in a relationship but when we broke up he started acting weird and posting them in different WhatsApp groups.
His family and my family are aware of what he is doing. They have tried to talk him out of it but he won’t listen. SHARE THIS STORY USING ANY OF THE BUTTON BELOW ⬇ PLACE YOUR TEXT ADVERT BELOW ⬇⬇⬇
