Nurses at Zimbabwe’s major state hospitals have started a go-slow, with doctors threatening to join them if their bonuses, which were due on the 2nd of January 2015, are not paid by Friday this week,state media ZBC has reported.

People visiting patients at Parirenyatwa Hospital confirmed that service delivery is markedly slower, with nurses on duty taking longer to attend to patients, leading to queues getting longer.

The Zimbabwe Nurses Association (ZINA) yesterday gave the government an ultimatum to pay outstanding bonuses by Friday the 9th of this month before nurses withdraw their services by Monday next week if their grievances are not addressed.
