Jane Mlambo| Health and Child care minister Dr Obadiah Moyo has appealed to striking doctors to return to work whilst government finds a lasting solution to their incapacitation.
“I want to appeal to doctors that our doors are always open. We are open to dialogue until we get solutions, but let us dialogue while we are at work,” Dr Moyo said.
Hospital doctors have been away from work for over 42 days and despite a labour court order compelling them to report for duty, they have continued to cite incapacitation to go back to work.
Government has since announced that they will deposit doctors’ salaries including the 60 percent increment into their bank accounts while negotiations for an end to the impasse continues.
