THE Zimbabwe Nurses Association (ZINA) has withdrawn their court application amidst indications that the two parties (i.e government and ZINA) could have reached an agreement of some sort leading to the reversal of their application.

The nurse’s body had approached the high court seeking an order to bar government from terminating their contracts of employment.
“It is true, the high court application has been withdrawn although i was not there, i can not comment further,” said Dongo.
In a notice of withdrawal filed with the Registrar of the High Court on Thursday 26 April 2018, Zimbabwe Nurses Association said the organisation no longer intends to proceed with legal action.
“Be pleased to take notice that the applicants hereby withdraw their urgent chamber application for an interdict,” reads part of the notice of withdrawal filed by Precious Chakasikwa and Bernard Chidziva of Kantor and Immerman Legal Practitioners representing Zimbabwe Nurses Association.
ZLHR understands that the withdrawal of the court application followed a meeting held on Wednesday 25 April 2018 by the National Executive Committee of Zimbabwe Nurses Association, where they resolved to instruct their lawyers to withdraw the urgent chamber application.
The urgent chamber application had been set down for hearing on Thursday 26 April 2018 at 3: PM before Justice Amy Tsanga.
