Zimbabwe nurses join doctors in a strike over pay and bonuses


Emergency services in Zimbabwe’s public hospitals are grinding to a halt after nurses joined doctors on strike.

Many nurses have reportedly stayed away from the main hospitals in Harare and nearby Chitungwiza in an indefinite protest over pay and conditions.

Last week, army doctors were brought in to help cope with the doctors’ strike.

Hospitals have been turning away the sick and patients have been discharged early following a doctor’s strike over allowances and job security.
