GOVERNMENT on Tuesday paid nurses their June salaries minus $2 000 from around $6 000 in May while other civil servants received salaries with a difference ranging from about $490 going upwards.
Military, police and other government personnel were also affected.

The nurses at the country’s biggest referral hospital, Parirenyatwa the following morning went on a rampage downing their tools and demonstrating against their employer.
