The Zimbabwe National Army is recruiting doctors, pharmacists and radiographers at a time when the same staff employed by government have remained on a crippling strike over salaries and working conditions.

Vice President Constantino Chiwenga who is also the Minister of Health and Child Care recently indicated that government will start employing health staff through the army instead of the public service through the Health Services Board.

Goverment later disputed the plan which looked set to block health personnel from being involved in industrial actions.

In an advert made available to, the army promises that it will offer a basic salary, free accommodation and some allowances to recruited personnel.
