Doctors and nurses in Zimbabwe are challenging a Ministry of Health rule they say impedes their ability to leave the country.  The ministry said last month that health care workers must obtain official signatures to receive a "Certificate of Good Standing" - a needed reference to get work abroad.  A doctor group says it’s an attempt to stop a mass exodus after poor treatment during the COVID-19 pandemic.  Columbus Mavhunga reports from Harare.
