Health practitioners, mostly nurses and junior doctors at Parirenyatwa Hospital strike has commenced as notified.
They are currently at Health Services Board offices.
They are on strike over pay across the country, despite government’s 100 per cent increment for civil servants.
The scene at the country’s biggest public hospital, Parirenyatwa not looking good and anti-riot police have just arrived.
Health APEX panel leader Tapiwanashe Kusotera say “Minister of Health and Child care has never met with any Health employee and Government continues to offer lies as opposed to what is prevailing on the ground. The situation is bad.”
“They’ve refused to listen to us, we refuse to work,” say the striking health practitioners.
Meanwhile, teachers have also downed tolls and are demanding pay in US dollars.
