Nurses dismissed for embarking on a strike over remuneration and working conditions have threatened to approach the High Court to challenge their dismissal, saying it was illegal.
Zimbabwe Nurses Association secretary general Mr Enock Dongo said the Health Services Board has not yet served them with dismissal letters, adding that they will not heed the dismissal announcement made by Vice President Constantino Chiwenga on  Tuesday.
Meanwhile Community Working Group on Health executive director Mr Itai Rusike said government should equip the Health Services Board with adequate resources and give them autonomy to deal with issues that affect the health sector.
Zimbabwe Congress of Trade Unions president Mr Peter Mutasa said government should respect  administrative and labour laws when dealing with  employees.
He added that government should learn from its past mistakes to avoid embarrassment when employees seek legal recourse .
