The Acting President of Zimbabwe Hospital Doctors Association Dr Peter Magombeyi will be leaving Zimbabwe to get medical attention in South Africa on Friday his Institution has said.
In a statement on Thursday ZHDA said, “Peter is fine. Currently in custody of his doctors. His travel arrangements are being finalized. No police interference at the moment. Will most likely travel first thing in the morning tomorrow.”
Police on Tuesday had swarmed the hospital where he was recuperating and blocked him from leaving for neighboring South Africa, even though a judge had ruled he could travel.
Magombeyi was allegedly abducted after leading a pay strike by health workers and rights groups say more than 50 government critics and opposition activists in Zimbabwe have been abducted this year alone.
