ED Sends Chilling Warning To Striking Doctors

President Emmerson Mnangagwa warned striking doctors that they will regret their insistence on being “stubborn”.

He said that in August doctors’ salaries were raised, and they were later awarded a 30 per cent hike which the government then raised to 60 per cent, but the doctors rejected it due to outside influences working to destabilise the health sector. He said:

There is no country that doesn’t have problems, so we should sit down and talk while you are at work. But if you insist on being stubborn, we will see where it will get you to. You might think what you are doing is right, but we will see what will happen at the end.

Doctors have been on strike since September 3 this year saying their salaries have been eroded by inflation and they have become incapacitated as a result.

Last week, the Labour Court ruled that the strike was illegal but doctors insist that the ruling did not address their incapacitation.

  1. Why are you threatening doctors who are just demanding a living wage when you can hire private jets when hospitals have no paracetamol to say the least. Workers are suffering and the best a so called leader can do is add salt to injury by threatening. Its quiet painful and insensitive indeed.

  2. Look at the style of leadership

    Hardline

    Brutal

    Authoritarian

    Military style

    That doesn’t work and will not work when dealing with civilians.

    Zanu way of doing things and their approaches are just but not inappropriate.

    Besides its expected especially from rulers who have a dark history of massacres

    Killing whites

    Killing ndebeles

    All the gold killings we hear

    All the disappearances of innocent people

    What do you expect when a country is being led by people accused of doing such horrendous things

  3. What is Ed saying that he will carry out another gukarandi on doctors their wives and their children ,who will provide the fuel for the buses?

  4. ED is trying to use terrorism to get the doctors back to work yet these youngmen have genuine problems that ED and his Myopic minister have chosen to disregard. It’s not salaries only but the working environment is pathetic

  5. Its their doing zvagara zanu inotemba nekuuraya vanhu vano demonstrator yet they say we are independent..itai yamagara mchiita henyu Idhi but kudenga uko kunaMwari havadhakwi vanoona zvese
