Tweet: Nurses in Zimbabwe are going on strike to protest their low salary and difficult working conditions.
On Monday, June 19, nurses in Zimbabwe have announced their intention to go on strike to protest their low salary and difficult working circumstances. The news was delivered in the form of a letter that was sent by a number of different unions to the largest hospital in the nation, which is located in Harare and is part of the Parirenyatwa Group of Hospitals.
Since the COVID-19 epidemic first started, this is the group’s second attack. During the previous uprising in 2020, hospitals were compelled to refuse patients because to the severity of the health crisis.
According to the unions, the average monthly salary for a nurse in Zimbabwe is approximately 30,000 Zimbabwe dollars ($79.37), and many of them are having trouble making ends meet due to the country’s severe inflation.
