Zimbabwe and Namibia are expected to sign another memorandum of understanding (MOU) that will regulate the employment of Zimbabwean health professionals who apply to work in the neighbouring country.

This comes ahead of the expiry of a five year MOU that was signed between the two countries in 2012.

The Namibian government has since indicated that it has suspended the recruitment of foreign nurses while the extension of contracts for foreign doctors has been slashed from four years to two years.
