Dozens of Zimbabwean nurses appeared in central Harare to protest against the government's decision to secure them to go for strike for better pay and working conditions.
Weared their uniforms white, they demanded that the government repeal its decision to fire the vast majority of the 15,000 nurses who began a strike on Monday. Nursing strike was initiated only a few weeks after the doctor's strike was completed.
"We want to go back to work but we can not, because we do not have enough resources," said Pretty Gudza, a nurse in Harare. "We put our lives at risk."

"The situation is bad, the patients die, the rupees are closed, there are no nurses, they were fired and prevented from getting to work at the hospital," she said.
