The nurses are demanding that the government comes out clean regarding the issue of their bonuses. Nurses got their November salaries without bonuses, something which took them by surprise. Traditionally the government gives its workforce the 13th cheque in the month of November.
Zimbabwe Nurses’ Association (ZINA) secretary general Enock Dongo said the government must honour the bonus commitment to civil servants.
We were told that the bonus is our right and, considering the hard work that nurses are doing, the government should really appreciate and pay our 2018 bonus without any compromise.
We want our bonuses without any compromise; no funnies. Government should look for money to pay our bonuses timeously; preferably this year.
