Matemadanda praises Mutare doctors for not going on strike




ZANU-PF National Political Commissar Victor Matemadanda has praised medical specialists, senior doctors, and nurses at Mutare Provincial Hospital for continuing to assist patients when others especially in Harare and Bulawayo have gone on strike.

Medical specialists and senior doctors and nurses at Mutare Provincial Hospital continue to render their services following engagement with the government despite junior doctors taking an adamant position not to report to work.

While Donating three wheelchairs and 500kgs of rice to staff and patients at the hospital, the Zanu-PF political commissar applauded the hospital staff for coming to the rescue of patients by taking heed of calls by government to continue negotiations while fulfilling their duties as lifesavers.

Matemadanda urged the Minister of State, Ministry of Health and health workers to continue with the positive engagement with the government providing empowerment schemes to complement

salaries by the medical staff.

“We are happy with the spirit exhibited by staff at this hospital following engagement with local government leadership spearhead by the Minister of State. We need to continue with the engagement and support the medical staff. Venturing into empowerment schemes and projects is worth development than striking,” he said.

Striking doctors have also rejected an offer by Higher Life Foundation to take care of part of their allowances and on-call costs, saying they first need to reach an agreement with Government.

Last week, President Emmerson Mnangagwa offered the doctors a 48-hour moratorium to return to work with no questions asked, which offer was equally turned down.

Vice President Constantino Chiwenga, speaking at his farm in Wedza Saturday, also urged the doctors to go back to work and save lives.
