Health Minister Asked If He Really Knows What Doctors Do

Junior doctors have mocked Health Minister Obadiah Moyo’s remarks that the government will avail ZUPCO buses for doctors to alleviate their incapacitation.

In a post on microblogging site Twitter, Zimbabwe Hospitals Doctors Association (ZHDA) secretary-general, Mthabisi Anele Bhebhe expressed down on whether Minister Moyo knows what a doctor does. He wrote:

The Minister of Health will expect a doctor to use a Zupco bus to see patients. Does he know what exactly doctors do, the work schedule of a doctor and the essence of time? Akusi kujairirwa here uku?

Junior and middle-level doctors have been on strike since the 3rd of September over poor remuneration and working conditions.

The government responded to the job action by firing hundreds of doctors, leaving public hospitals bereft of both doctor and patients.
