Doctors Concede That Govt Has No Capacity To Pay Salaries In US Dollars

The Zimbabwe Medical Association (ZIMA) said that it was satisfied with the talks it held on Thursday with the Minister of Health and Child Care, Dr Obadiah Moyo concerning the ongoing doctors’ strike.

Zima secretary general, Dr Sacrifice Chirisa, said the demand for payment in American dollars by the doctors had been scrapped off after they considered the economic situation in the country. Dr Chirisa had this to say

We have negotiated starting with the US dollars request and those have been removed. We are happy with the negotiations that have taken place so far. I think we are in a positive direction and we are expecting a positive response from our counterparts. Negotiations have been fruitful and tough and we are making sure that by Christmas we would have full services without any disturbances. Some of the issues will be discussed in due course.

Meanwhile, the Zimbabwe Hospital Doctors Association (ZHDA) said that it will issue a statement on Friday.

  1. Government and doctors must meet half way. Government should also consider the welfare of our doctors and doctors should also consider the prevailing economic situation, its a good development that they have come to an agreement.
