The government says it will not pay salaries for striking doctors at public hospitals. The doctors downed tools 56 days ago citing poor salaries and conditions.

In a post Cabinet briefing, Information Minister Monica Mutsvangwa who is also acting Health Minister said the strike had crippled operations at the health institutions.

She said the most affected hospitals were in Harare and Bulawayo.

"Meanwhile, salaries will only be paid to those doctors who were providing service," said Mutsvangwa.

She said the striking doctors will also be hauled before a hearing on November 1.
