Doctors Strike in Zimbabwe as Government Imposes Austerity to Attract More Chinese Investment

Craig Dube

Zimbabwean President Emmerson Mnangagwa has had to cut his holiday vacation short to try to resolve an escalating strike among doctors at public hospitals over low pay and medical supply shortages. Now entering its second month, the strike comes as the government pursues a short-sighted effort to improve its reputation among international creditors by slashing public spending.

If only when governments slashed money, if only the cuts came at the every least—EQUALLY from all classes. So, if teachers get no pay , neither would Congress people. If government employees are laid off, so is Congress. That would be interesting-----as so many work so little anyway. It would be even better if the military got shut down too. : )

“Zimbabwe is open for business” = Capitalists, come loot our country.

Zimbabwe will surely have to sell off (give away, get stolen, however you want to word it) its resources to accommodate the austerity. It’s a tried and true game now that the creditors (vultures) exploit.

Sounds like a radical left-wing takeover. “Certainty of death, little chance for success, what are we waiting for?” Gimli.
