Wanasema mgomo ulisababisha vifo vya watu 300 na madai ya kulipwa mshahara wa mil 3 ni jambo lisilowezekana. Pia itakuwa funzo kwa makundi mengine yanayojiamulia tu kugoma bila utaratibu.

The activists said the doctors should be taken to task because their strike had caused unnecessary deaths of innocent people. Talking to journalists in Dar es Salaam yesterday, the chairman of the committee, Mr Godfrey Mosha, said the doctors should be punished and serve as a lesson to other groups with the same intention. Our committee is in the process to take to the High Court Labour Division all those who participated in the strike, he said. Mr Mosha rallied behind various activists and other groups in the country to support their move, which he said was meant to fight for the lost peoples rights. We appeal to all well wishers in to support our cause, he noted. He explained that the committee comprising lawyers, environmentalists and retired doctors, observed that at least 300 people died as a result of the strike and that doctors signed attendance books, never worked but continued to draw salaries. He noted that apart from acting against the laid down regulations and laws, the striking doctors acted against their ethical code of professional conduct. This cannot be tolerated, he explained, adding that doctors are not a special group of people in the country than other working groups such as the police, teachers and army. Explaining further, Mr Mosha said the committee and Tanzanians in general were saddened by the behaviour shown by doctors when they earlier refused to cooperate with the Premier, Mr Mizengo Pinda, with a clear knowledge that Mr Pinda is a legitimate high ranking government leader. He said the demand for salaries ranging from Sh3 million for starting doctors and Sh17 million for consulting ones was not feasible considering the governments financial capacity at the moment.The committee commended President Jakaya Kikwete for reaching a consensus with the striking doctors to go end the strike.He called on civil servants and public workers to be patriotic.
