The summary dismissal of nurses by the Zimbabwean Vice President: What does the law say?

/Brief background

Barely one month after the industrial action of junior doctors’ in March 2018, saw the government being put to another test. More than 13 000 nurses working in public hospitals went on strike to press the government for payment of their last year’s allowances, better working conditions and to fix a flawed system for grading salaries. They also demanded improved working conditions. The industrial action left public hospitals understaffed and risking the lives of admitted patients across the country. The Secretary General (Enoch Dongo) for the Zimbabwe Nurses Association (ZINA), which has more than 16,000 members, stated that government negotiators had tried to avert the strike by promising to pay arrears but nurses resolved to go on strike. According to ZINA, the lowest paid nurse in Zimbabwe earns a gross monthly salary of $284 before allowances.
