‘I Want My USD Nostro In My Hands’, Doctors And Nurses Reject Electronic Cards

Health practitioners at Bulawayo’s United Bulawayo Hospital (UBH) on Thursday staged a demonstration demanding improved salaries.

They also rejected the government’s US$75.00 COVID-19 offer which was announced by the Ministry of Finance and Economic Development on Wednesday.

The government has clarified that the allowance will not be paid in cash but public sector workers will be given purchasing electronic cards which they will then use to pay for goods and services.

Doctors and nurses have rejected the “rebased-RTGS dollar” with one of the placards written, “I work with my hands, I want my US$ Nostro in my hands”.
