Doctors reject Govt offer, vow to go ahead with strike today
Zimbabwe Hospital Doctors Association (ZHDA) rejected Government’s offer to open up 250 new posts for junior doctors and 2 000 posts for nurses and has vowed to start its planned work stoppage today.
In an interview with NewDay after yesterday’s Cabinet meeting, Health minister David Parirenyatwa said:
We have been negotiating with the ministry of Finance for posts since November and so we have been offered 250 posts for doctors and 2 000 posts for nurses. This is a welcome move. I am urging them not to go ahead with the industrial action. We need to look after our patients. This is solved by negotiations.Feedback
However, Zimbabwe Hospital Doctors’ Association (ZHDA) president Edgar Munatsi said negotiations had not yielded anything concrete and said they were going ahead with their strike.
