President Emmerson Mnangagwa says government and nurses have found common ground.
Responding to Matt Tshuma who had written criticizing government on the President's official Facebook page for firing nurses, President Mnangagwa said he welcomes all views from Zimbabweans and understands the frustrations of many people and called for patience, saying economic development cannot be achieved overnight.
Government recently paid nurses outstanding allowances backdated to 2010 .
Meanwhile the Zimbabwe Nurses Association (ZINA) secretary general Enock Dongo has confirmed that nurses arrears were paid but not all nurses benefitted from the windfall.
In an interview with Star FM News, Mr Dongo said government however promised to clear all the arrears by end of June.
Nurses in April downed tools over poor remuneration, arrears government owed them and poor working conditions.
