Residents Doctors Association of Zambia have refuted reports suggesting that Junior doctors at the University Teaching Hospital UTH have downed tools.

Association President Francis Mupeta says no Junior doctor has gone on strike and that the misunderstanding between the members and government is being attended to through the available procedures.

Dr Mupeta says government owes 250 Junior doctors over 10 Million Kwacha in settling allowances and school fees for Post Graduate students which has not been paid for over a year.

Dr Mupeta said this at a press briefing in Lusaka.

He added that government has promised to settle the debt owed to doctors within two weeks adding that the association has faith in government.

    • They are Junior Quacks! They haven’t even saved any lives and they are demanding money. Zambians need to learn to sacrifice a little for their country. If you went into medicine to make money then you need to leave and go into business!
