    HARARE: Junior doctors on Thursday “grudgingly” ended a crippling 40-day strike for better pay and conditions without a deal on salary increases, their union said, but warned that members may not report for work daily due to acute fuel shortages.

    The development was confirmed in a statement by the Zimbabwe Hospital Doctors Association (ZHDA).

    “ZHDA is delighted to inform the membership, and the public that the industrial action by doctors in government hospitals has come to an end. Our members have begrudgingly resumed work with effect from today (Thursday) as dialogue continues,” the union said.

    “Sadly, with no salary review, and frozen December salaries in this rough and ravaging economic environment, it remains a dilemma on how our members will report for work daily.

    They caved. Zimbabwe is going to be forced back to the dollar.
