Some of the doctors from Zimbabwe said that they have faced intimidation from the government since they began demonstrating.

The doctors are said to be demanding for better wages as the ones they are receiving they say its barely enough to pay for their rent and food.

Currently, a Zimbabwean doctor is said to be receiving around 100 dollars per month which is way much lower compared to others in different countries.

The country has also been suffering from inflation as they try to control the flow of money in the economy to sustain everyone.
