Government Bars Unvaccinated Workers From Work, Withholds Salaries

All unvaccinated civil servants without any underlying medical conditions have been barred from work without salary subject to disciplinary hearings.

Those qualifying for exemption are required to provide a medical certificate certifying that vaccination can worsen their conditions.

This was announced by Public Service Commission (PSC) Permanent Secretary Ambassador Jonathan Wutawunashe in a circular addressed to all ministries dated February 11, 2022, referenced measures for Covid-19 containment within the public service. 

The circular directs the rest of the vaccinated Government workers working from home to return to work with immediate effect under strict adherence to the current lockdown normal working hours. Reads the circular:

In view of the announcement by the Acting President General (Rtd) Dr C.G.D.N Chiwenga on January 2022, regarding measures for Covid-19 containment in the country, heads of ministries are directed to adhere to the underlisted measures with immediate effect, all vaccinated members to return to work with immediate effect.

Face to face interviews now permitted in strict adherence to Covid-19 health measures, office hours shall remain the same and in line with Section 3 (a) (i) of Statutory Instrument 234 of 2021, members not vaccinated should be barred from the workplace and shall not be paid while they are barred.

Members that are not fully vaccinated without a reasonable excuse shall be subject to disciplinary proceedings.

All other health protocols such as wearing face masks, social distancing and sanitisation should be adhered to.

True. Thats a way of trying to force teachers to get back to work. What they dont kniw is that even if forced. They will just go and sit in the staff room for an hour at most. Then go back ku etra lessons.

Or kunongwavha ngwavha. As long as tisina kupiwa mari.NO WORK

I disagree with you. Do not develop the tendency of politicising everything. Do not politicise especially health matters. You will mislead others. There is nothing wrong about the vaccination policy or gvt position on this. The USA recently issued a statement to this effect about her Army. Are there teachers striking there?
