  1. Our government is incapable of learning! And what will the government pay the doctors they recruit? Are there doctors willing to come to Zimbabwe to work for a paltry salary?

  2. This is stupidity at its best. This government will face the same problem with the newly recruited doctors. We want serious leaders please!!

  3. 😂😂😂😂 from where? Who in his right mind will come here for US$80 per month. Does the government know the least paid Dr in the region is above US$2000. Ofcause the minister of health wouldnt know, he was never a Dr.
