Govt Now ‘Regrets’ Suspending Junior Doctors, Asks Them To Return To Work

The government is said to be seeking further talks with striking doctors in order to salvage the deteriorating situation at the country’s public hospitals.

Last week the Labour Court ruled that the junior doctors’ strike was illegal and ordered the striking doctors to return to work. The doctors’ refusal to return to work prompted the government to suspend 530 doctors, with no pay.

However, the Minister for Health and Child Care confirmed to state media over the weekend that the government will meet the doctors on Monday to find a lasting solution to their problems.

Minister Moyo said

We are concerned about the people. The doctors should return to work immediately to save lives.

On Monday, we are resuming talks to find ways to resolve the issue but, we encourage them to go back to work whilst talks are ongoing.
