Parirenyatwa General Workers Earning ZWL$5 000 Salaries

Parirenyatwa General Workers Earning ZWL$5 000 Salaries

General workers at the Parirenyatwa Group of Hospitals, who include groundsmen, cleaners, and cooks are reportedly earning as little as ZWL$5 000 a month.

ZWL$5 000 is worth less than US$10 and is not enough to buy ten loaves of bread.

Allied Health Workers Association of Zimbabwe leader Simbarashe Chatyoka said their members have joined the ongoing industrial action by public health workers over poor salaries. Said Chatyoka:

We are in full support of the ongoing strike. We are incapacitated. We have nothing at home, our salaries are too low, we cannot feed our families and we do not even afford our own accommodation.

Some of my members are earning less than ZW$5,000 because they have taken some loans and their salaries are being heavily deducted putting an extra burden on them.

For someone who is getting ZW$5,000 it is very difficult to survive because we pay transport fares in US dollars.

We buy the money on the black market at the rate of US$1 to ZW$600 which makes it really tough for us as lower-grade employees.

Public sector healthcare workers have been on strike since Monday after the Government ignored calls for dialogue for 14 months.

They are demanding that their salaries should be paid in US dollars, among other things.

There was drama in parliament as Minister of Finance Prof Muthli Ncube escaped out of parliament at a speed which could easily won a medal at Olympics.

Reliable source say former Minister of Finance Hon Tendai Biti had questioned the logic of having government services paid in USdollar but paying civil Servants in local currency.

Prof Muthli Ncube tried to defend the government policy which angered opposition members of parliament .Hon Tendai Biti said " Mr Speaker with your permission I call upon hon. Members to get hold and search Prof Muthli Ncube.If they find any amount of bond note in his pocket I will give him three mombe dzinotsika naMai Dzvororo."

When some members of parliament moved towards the front bench which is occupied by Minister .Hon Ncube dashed out of parliament at very high speed leaving the house in stitches.

"Mazviona iye unoda kupa vana zvaasingadyi.This man is there to destroy ZanuPF.We are going to lose this election because of this man." a ZanuPF member of parliament shouted in the midst of the confusion.
