ED: “Medical Staff Must Now Retrieve Their Collective Conscience”

President Emmerson Mnangagwa has said that the medical staff must now consider going back to work as their industrial action was jeopardising lives of many innocent people.

Urging doctors and nurses to return to work, the president said:

The appropriate, professional response to reports of any missing persons should never take the form that endangers more lives, all of them innocent. Now is the time for our medical staff to retrieve their collective conscience and to restate their commitment oath that makes their profession sacred.

Mnangagwa also urged the business community to support the broader goal of economic recovery and sustainable long term macro-economic stability saying that some of their prices were unjustified particularly when salaries remained stagnant.

His remarks come after doctors have announced that they will continue with their strike even when the president of Zimbabwe Hospital Doctors Association, Peter Magombeyi was found on Thursday night.

The commonly shared belief was that doctors would return to work upon the return of Magombeyi who had gone missing since Saturday 14 September.

Magombeyi’s disappearance had resulted in chaos as medical practitioners downed tools demanding his return. ZHDA, however, announced that they will continue with the strike over salaries.
