ZIMBABWE SACKS THOUSANDS OF NURSES ON STRIKE

Zimbabwe’s government has sacked more than 10,000 nurses who went on strike last Monday, in an apparently hardline attempt to quell labour unrest.

Vice-President Constantino Chiwenga said the nurses had refused to return to work after 17 million dollars was released to increase their pay.

He chided them for not going back “in the interest of saving lives”.

But the extraordinary move, reports say, may simply be a tactic aimed at forcing the nurses back to work, correspondents say.
