Striking Doctors Accuse Health Minister Of Dishonesty

Striking junior doctors have accused the Minister of Health and Child Care, Obadiah Moyo, of dishonesty for saying the doctors earn RTGS$8000-11000 per month.

In a statement, the Zimbabwe Hospital Doctors Association (ZHDA) said the true figure is less than RTGS2500. In a Twitter post on Monday, the ZDHA wrote:

It is regrettable that @mohcc’s [Ministry of Health and Child Care] dishonesty only slows down progress. We would like to categorically state that the Rtgs 8000-11000 mentioned by the Minister during yesterday’s address is grossly inaccurate. The true figure falls short of RTGS2500.

Junior doctors have been on strike for 35 days, Health Minister Obadiah Moyo on Saturday said those that don’t report for work this Monday will face disciplinary action.

However, the doctors have defied the order, insisting that they are incapacitated and demanded to be paid their salaries in US dollars converted at the prevailing interbank market rate.
