Zimbabwe’s Government Advertise Vacancies To Replace Striking Doctors 


Zimbabwe’s government has advertised for more than 200 vacancies to replace junior doctors who went on strike at the beginning of December, reports the state-owned newspaper the Herald. The doctors say there are many areas of concern, including working conditions, protective gear and the availability of medicines.

The government says it has met most concerns, which the doctors say is not true, reports the BBC’s Shingai Nyoka in Harare. The government suspended more than 500 medical staff on Christmas Eve, reports the Guardian.

Last week the Labour Court declared the strike illegal, the Herald adds. In April the government sacked thousands of striking nurses and later reinstated them.
