A video of an empty Parirenyatwa hospital without any members of staff has surfaced online.

The video which was posted by award winning journalist Hopewell Chin'ono shows the patients wards, doctors quarters and all other rooms ;looking all empty.

Chin'ono said, "Empty and Ghostly, this is Parirenyatwa Hospital this evening! Only tired army doctors who are providing an auxiliary service. Ward after ward, it was empty! Not only doctors are off work, even the hard working nurses have left their stations due to wage incapacitation!"\

The health staffers are saying they cannot attend work because they are incapacitated.

Former Cabinet Minister Saviour Kasukuwere said the government strategy of firing workers was not working.

"The health situation in our country is dire. People are dying every day without attention. Firing doctors is irresponsible and careless. What has happened to our conscience! This is tragic and painful. This is completely out of order."
