What Zimbabwe Doctors Received As Appreciation from the President

Doctors in Zimbabwe appear not to be too enamoured with the appreciation donations they received from President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s government for fighting Covid-19.

Zimetro.co.zw has learned that the doctors as well as other front-line health personnel who are at the forefront fighting against the coronavirus, received care packages from the President.

According to some of the doctors, the care packages which were donated in appreciation for their services fighting the coronavirus included the following:

2 Kilograms of Sugar
2 Kilograms of Rice
2 Kilograms of Flour
2 Kilograms of Salt
2 Litres of Cooking Oil and
2 Litres of Cordial

The appreciation care packages did not seem to sit well with some doctors who took to social media and called on the government to focus on giving them sustainable remuneration instead of handing out freebies.

Doctors, nurses and other health personnel have been complaining of poor pay and poor working conditions. Nurses are currently on strike and have been saying that they will not go back to work unless the government gives them a living wage commensurate with their skills and the perils of their jobs.

Below are some of the reactions from social media over the appreciation care packages donated to the doctors and frontline health workers by the President.
