Double Trouble For Mnangagwa As Doctors, Teachers Threaten Strike

Teachers and doctors, who make up the bulk of Zimbabwe's public service, have rejected the government's wage offer, with medical personnel threatening to strike if their demand to have their salaries benchmarked in U.S. dollars is not met. Earlier, the government proposed a 60% pay increase for doctors, while offering a 76% raise for the rest of the civil service, to avert crippling strikes by state workers.
