Zimbabwe’s hospitals paralysed as doctors protest over abducted colleague
A doctor and leader of a workers union was abducted five days ago, with health workers saying they are constantly harassed by state agents
Harare — Zimbabwe’s doctors on Thursday marched in the capital Harare to protest against the abduction of their colleague, as the country’s public hospitals continue to be paralysed by a health workers’ strike.
Dr Peter Magombeyi, leader of a workers union that has been pushing for a pay hike for doctors, was abducted on Saturday and has not been seen since. His colleagues say Magombeyi was captured by state agents that wanted to silence the medical practitioners for making the pay demands.
