DAY 70 UPDATE

DAY 70 OF INCAPACITATION.

ALUTA CONTINUA
CERTA VICTORY
TODAY MARKS DAY 70 OF THE SILENT GENOCIDE IN ZIMBABWEAN HOSPITALS. THE GOVERNMENT HAS USED SEVERAL TRICKS TO INTIMIDATE AND ENSLAVE US BUT WE SHALL REMAIN UNITED AND STRONG.

AS ZHDA WE ENDORSE THE MESSAGE BY SHDA. WE ARE NOT SLAVES AND IT IS NOT OUR RESPONSIBILITY TO SUBSIDIZE THE GOVERNMENT. IT IS UP TO THE GOVERNMENT TO ENSURE THE HOSPITALS ARE PROPERLY MANNED AND HAVE ADEQUATE MEDICATION AND EQUIPMENT.AS  ZHDA AND SHDA WE REITERATE THAT WE ARE NOT A POLITICAL ENTITY BUT WILL CALL A SPADE A SPADE. IT IS UP TO GOVERNMENT TO CONTINUE FIGHTING ITS CIVILIANS OR TO DO THE RIGHT THING AND PAVE WAY FOR DIALOGUE.

WE ARE NOW OUTSIDE APPEALING WINDOW. OUR VICTORY WILL NOT COME FROM THE COURTS WHICH HAVE LABELLED POVERTY AS A CRIMINAL OFFENSE.

WE ARE STILL OPEN TO DIALOGUE WITH THE EMPLOYER BUT WE SHALL NOT COMPROMISE OUR STANCE ON INTERBANK RATED SALARIES. THE COST OF LIVING HAS RISEN BY 1500% AND REFUSING TO RAISE OUR SALARIES ACCORDINGLY BECAUSE “INFLATION WILL ESCALATE” IS NOT OUR RESPONSIBILITY AS DOCTORS. WE OFFER AN ESSENTIAL SERVICE AND IT IS UP TO GOVERNMENT TO FIX THE ECONOMY WHILE WE GET WELL DESERVED REMUNERATION.

REINSTATING OF THE FIRED MEMBERS IS A PREREQUISITE TO SINCERE DIALOGUE, WHICH IS LONG OVERDUE. THREATS WILL NOT DETER US, WE DEMAND A FAIR LIVING WAGE.

MEDIA CAMPAIGN WILL CONTINUE. WE ARE LIVING IN A GLOBAL VILLAGE AND AS SUCH WE HAVE THE SPOTLIGHT DIRECTLY SHINING AT US. THIS IS OUR OPPORTUNITY TO RESTORE SANITY TO
THE PROFESSION AND HEALTHCARE AS A WHOLE.

*OUR ROUTINE MONDAY SOLIDARITY MEETING IS ON TOMORROW AT PARI MAIN ENTRANCE AT 0900HRS*. BE PUNCTUAL COMRADES!

ZHDA MEMBERSHIP FORMS ARE DOWNLOADABLE FROM THE WEBSITE AND FROM NEC MEMBERS FOR THOSE INTERESTED.

TO HELP EASE THE FINANCIAL BURDEN WE ARE GOING AHEAD WITH CROWD FUNDING.TREASURER GENERAL WILL KEEP EVERYONE UPDATED THROUGH WEEKLY FINANCIAL REPORTS. WE ARE AT WAR TO SAVE THE PROFESSION, LET’S STAY PUT UNTIL THEY CAPACITATE US TO ATTEND TO OUR DUTIES.

ALUTA CONTINUA
CERTA VICTORIA

NO TO SLAVERY
NO TO POVERTY!
NO TO INTIMIDATION
NO TO DISMISSALS!
