High Court Judge, Justice Clement Phiri, has granted an order allowing Zimbabwe Hospital Doctors Association (ZHDA) to peacefully march this afternoon.
The order stated that the doctors could march from Parirenyatwa Hospital to within a radius of 20 metres from the vicinity of Parliament this afternoon.
ZHDA had approached the High Court this morning seeking a court order prohibiting the police from obstructing or interfering with the march.
Officer Commanding Police Harare Central District, Commissioner-General of Police Godwin Matanga and Minister of Home Affairs and Cultural Heritage Cain Mathema were cited as respondents.
The order comes when the police have been blocking doctors’ marches around the country.
Doctors intend to march over their missing acting president, Dr Peter Magombeyi who disappeared on Saturday 14 September.
His disappearance followed some threats over the phone from unknown persons.
