“Our Salaries Are Now Useless” – Desperate Nurses Plead With Govt
Nurses have urgently called on the government to review their salaries citing the soaring prices of basic commodities.
Speaking during the launch of the Nurses Now Zimbabwe program in Harare, Zimbabwe Nurses Association (ZINA) president, Enoch Dongo said
Our salaries need to be reviewed, it doesn’t match the increases in the prices of basic commodities. It’s now very difficult to survive, even after the salary increment was handled by the government, the money has already been eroded by inflation
We are now worse than what we were before this increment. So we are calling the government to urgently review our living and working conditions as this has become unsustainable. Nurses are the ones who run the institutions even after the doctors would have left to attend to other businesses, nurses are always there.
The nurses tried to go on strike last year but were dealt a huge blow after Vice President Constantino Chiwenga fired over 16 000 nurses for going on strike. This resulted in the divided nurses going back to work.
