Nurses Call Off Three-Month Strike in Zimbabwe

Thousands of striking nurses have called off their strike over pay disputes and Covid-19 protective gear, three months after walking out of public hospital wards. According to Enock Dongo, president of the 15,000-member Zimbabwe Nurses Association, the nurses decided to end the strike to allow the newly-appointed health minister, Vice President Constantino Chiwenga, an opportunity to attend to their complaints. Earlier Chiwenga promised that the government would improve their salaries and working conditions.
