Zimbabwe's Vice-President, Constantino Chiwenga

The Zimbabwean Vice President, Constantino Chiwenga, has on Monday disclosed that the government will no longer avail foreign currency to assist cabinet ministers and other senior officials seeking medical treatment in state-of-the-art health facilities outside Zimbabwe.

Chiwenga told the media at his New Munhumutapa government office that the state had stopped footing the medical bills of all senior government officials in order to maintain the national medical bill.

He also promised to improve conditions of service for public health workers who have been on strike demanding better salaries and working conditions.
