Doctors Reject Government Offer. Strike Continues

The striking doctors have rejected an offer by the government after negotiations yesterday. The move effectively prolongs the strike.

The government said it could not pay the doctors in US Dollars but could help with other things.

Zimbabwe Hospital Doctors’ Association (ZHDA) said in a statement:

The employer initially had said the cost of living adjustments would be made in February. That it has been postponed to April (to include the rest of the civil service) is something surprising and without honesty.

We refused to sign such a bad offer with no clarity on issues that matter.

Government had agreed to drop disciplinary cases against the doctors under the rejected deal. The negotiations were attended by Apex Council members, Finance ministry permanent secretary, George Guvamatanga and his Health counterpart, Gerald Gwinji, and others.

  1. Fire them permanently, clearly they are putting money before people. Teach them that self enrichment is not tolerated in times of need.

  2. Good on you, Doctors. Zim government is like a circus show, donot give in to empty promises, donot be like the majority of stupid Zimbabweans ( like the person who wrote the first comment) who believe the sweet nothings that politicians whisper into their ears. Give them hell.
    If only the rest of the nation would come in and join you guys to shut down the whole country. Bring to an end this nonsense government.
