Zim Govt Unmoved By Reports That Britain Could Lure Fired Doctors

Health and Child Care Minister Obadiah Moyo has played down suggestions that hundreds of Zimbabwean doctors who were recently fired by the government could be lured to work in the United Kingdom.

Responding to questions at a post-cabinet media briefing in Harare on Tuesday, Moyo declared that the UK is a sovereign state and can do as it pleases. He said:

We must take note that the British government has always been advertising for courses to recruit people from overseas; it is a continuous process.

So, the industrial action, incapacitation, whatever you may call it, it just merely coincide. This is an ongoing practice of the British government.

With Britain inching towards Brexit, Prime Minister Boris Johnson this week promised to accelerate his country’s National Health Services (NHS) visas to make it easier for doctors and nurses from other countries to work in the UK.

  1. The government is unmoved by anything unless there is something in it for them.. While it may be true that the UK is always recruiting medical professionals from abroad, it is only now that the visa requirements are being relaxed. What about this simple move does the Minister not understand?
