By A Correspondent- The government has ignored the plight of doctors who lost their properties in an inferno at Mpilo hospital last week and only managed to give them birth certificates.
Last week several doctors were left homeless at Mpilo hospital after their hostel was gutted by fire.
The doctors lost properties worth thousands of united states dollars to fire.
Briefing the media during a post Cabinet meeting Tuesday, Information, Publicity and Broadcasting Services Minister Monica Mutsvangwa said affected doctors have only been provided with national identity documents.
“The affected staff have so far been provided with accommodation, clothing, toiletries and food since the disaster occurred.
“Birth certificates and identity cards have been issued to all those in hotel accommodation and passports will be issued at the Registry Office,” she said unapologetically.
