The university reconsiders its action in light of further information availed and submissions made during the discussions.

Zima had earlier called upon the government to reconsider its decision to suspend the two surgeons saying it had a very huge adverse impact on the healthcare delivery system.

Mbuwayesango who is the country’s first doctor to separate conjoined twins in 2014 had been suspended for allegedly inciting doctors to strike.

Zimbabwe Hospital Doctors Association (ZHDA) had called upon the Parliament to summon the Health Minister, Dr Obadiah Moyo over the suspensions which the association said would deprive many citizens of the right to health.
