Doctors ok to strike, says Chamisa

Doctors ok to strike, says Chamisa
Published: 21 March 2018 (229 Views)
THE strike by junior doctors at public hospitals is justified and government must honour its pledge and pay them, opposition MDC-T leader Nelson Chamisa has said.

He made the remarks at Harare Central Hospital after touring the health facility to assess the impact of the job action on patients, who he said were dying in large numbers because of lack of care.

Doctors have been on strike for almost two weeks over low salaries, on call allowances, poor working conditions and lack of essential drugs among other reasons.

"It is a justifiable and justified action because they have not been given what is due to them," said Chamisa.
