Chamisa Bemoans The Abduction of Doctors Association Leader

Views
MDC president Nelson Chamisa has condemned the kidnapping of the Zimbabwe Hospital Doctors Association (ZHDA) Acting President Dr Peter Magombeyi.
Dr Magombaeyi was abducted around 10 PM on Saturday night and has not been seen since.
In a statement, Chamisa bemoaned the abduction and called for the implementation of political reforms to prevent such acts from happening. He said:
It breaks my heart knowing that the family of Dr Peter Magombeyi is terrified of what is happening to their loved one.
Dr Magombeyi’s crime is only to ask for a living wage for his profession.
This is a reflection of the troubles born out of the refusal to implement Political Reforms.
Meanwhile, doctors have vowed to embark on demonstrations in all public hospitals in protest over the forced disappearance of Dr Magombeyi. ZHDA secretary-general, Mthabisi Bhebhe said:
TOMORROW ALL GOVERNMENT HOSPITALS WILL BE OPERATING WITHOUT A SINGLE DOCTOR. THERE ARE SCHEDULED MASS PROTESTS AGAINST THE BRUTAL DISAPPEARANCE OF DR MAGOMBEYI WHO HAS GONE MISSING FOR CLOSE TO 24 HOURS NOW. DEMONSTRATIONS WILL START AT 1000AM IN ALL CENTRAL HOSPITALS.
