Zimbabwe Hospital Doctors Association, Amon Siveregi, has denied state
media reports that they have called off their strike action. ... The
state media claimed that nurses, together with other civil servants,
had received an additional Z$100 million on top of their December
salaries. It further claimed that several health workers interviewed
had confirmed the money was reflecting in their accounts and because of
this doctors and nurses had gone back to work. However it turns out the
money has been offered as loans repayable at 5 percent interest. The
doctors and nurses have rejected the offer. ... Doctors
