Written by admin on May 29, 2021
The Resident Doctors Association of Zambia has instructed its members to continue with the go-slow until their demands are met by government.
The Doctors commenced their go-slow last night after government failed to meet their demands that include employment of at least 500 unemployed Doctors, payment of salary arrears, settling-in allowances and promotions dating back to 2015.
A check at the University Teaching Hospital revealed a calm environment with some doctors opting to sit in their respective offices while waiting to hear from relevant authorities on what steps are to be taken in order to have their demands met. Resident Doctors Association of Zambia UTH Branch President, Dr. Zombe Mazimba says the go slow will continue until the general membership is receive their demands.
Some of the Doctors talked to advised politicians to stay away from their go-slow and avoid using their issues as campaign tools.
Meanwhile, suspended Resident Doctors Association President, Dr. Brian Sampa has described his 3 months suspension by the Health Professions Council of Zambia as null and void as no suspension letter has been served on him. He further stated that the move is only meant to intimidate him from carrying out his duties.
