HARARE, Zimbabwe

The way in which hospital is to be run still remains vague,” Zimbabwe Hospital Doctors Association said in a statement. “Whilst you continue to run around putting things in place, we would like to make it clear to you in no uncertain terms that our members will not be able to continue carrying out their duties with immediate effect.”
