By Own Correspondent| Opposition MDC Alliance leader Nelson Chamisa has saluted nurses who are working hard to save people from the COVID-19 pandemic saying they should be paid more.

He made the remarks on Twitter while commemorating the International Nurses Day.

Chamisa said nurses are risking their lives while saving people from the global pandemic which has affected more than four million people across the world while over 200 000 have succumbed to the airborne disease.

“I heartily salute all Nurses who passionately provide care &attention to us all. Against this COVID-19, you are saving lives while risking your own. In a New Zimbabwe,we will shape & change healthcare.We owe you more than words can say.Beyond paying tributes,we must pay you more,” said Chamisa.

Recently government scrapped the flexi hour system that saw nurses working two days per week due to incapacitation.

This has riled nurses who have since threatened to down tools arguing that they were not consulted before cabinet came up with the decision.
