The Harare city council attempts to improve the relationship with the striking health workers who have been demanding higher pay and will grand land plots to cover the salary arrears.
According to Housing committee chairperson Hammy Madzingira, at least 3, 700 stands have been ring-fenced and will be handed to the doctor in a two-week period.
“I am further pleased to advise that I have instructed that certain pieces of land be ring-fenced for the benefit of the affected employees. These pieces of land are as follows Mabvuku (1, 832), Tafara (342) and Eyestone (1, 000),” Madzingira told the reporters at Town House.
In November, more than 200 Zimbabwean doctors across the country were fired for absenteeism following a two-month-long strike.
The workers have faced the consequences of the Zimbabwe’s hyperinflation and are struggling to make a living. The situation reportedly deteriorated to the point they could not even get to work by transport.
