No Forex Salaries For You. Obadiah Moyo Tells Striking Doctors
The Minister of Health and Child Care, Obadiah Moyo said that the government has no capacity to pay doctors’ salaries in foreign currency.
Most of the junior doctors are on strike and one of their demands is that they get their salaries in United States dollars.
Moyo had this to say – “There is no foreign currency in the country to buy medicines for use in hospitals, and that particular aspect of paying individuals in US dollars is not possible. The President has been encouraging the pharmacists to sell drugs in local currency because there is no foreign currency, people cannot get foreign currency.
“If we were to try and say we are going to be paying people in foreign currency it would eat into the allocations for medicines, fuel and other things. Arrangements are being made as we access foreign currency.”
