Zimbabwe billionaire to pay doctors about $  300 a month to end strikeStriking junior doctors at Zimbabwe’s state hospitals will end a four-month strike after accepting an offer from a telecoms billionaire to pay them a monthly allowance of about $ 300 for six months, their union said on Thursday. The doctors went on strike on Sept. 3 to protest against poor wages and a lack of adequate equipment and medicines, leaving many poor people unable to get treatment.
