Zimbabwean Doctors Vow To Continue Strike

Striking junior doctors and radiographers working in public hospitals in Zimbabwe have vowed to continue with their job action despite a threat by their employer and an adverse weekend court ruling.

Following an application by the health services board, HSB, the labor court declared the strike illegal at the weekend.  Labor court judge Betty Chidziva, ruled in favor of the HSB which hires doctors. She said doctors offer an essential service and cannot engage in a collective job action.
