"The Solution Is In The Ballot, Come 2023" Police Speak On Salaries

Members of the Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP) are reportedly threatening bhora musango, a protest vote for the opposition in next year’s polls citing poor salaries, working conditions and deteriorating standards of living.

Their threats come when other civil servants have called for nationwide strikes on July 27 and 28 demanding “restoration of the value of our wages to pre-October 2018 levels to be paid in USD and not in ZWL with immediate effect.” 

July 2022 salary review:

a). Nurses are now getting around $150 000, US$100, and US$75 COVID-19 allowance which is given to all civil servants.

b). Soldiers get around $98 000

c). Police officers along with teachers get $43 000.

NewsDay Zimbabwe reports that leaked WhatsApp chats suggest that police officers, including high-ranking officials, said they would embark on a go-slow and threatened protest votes in the 2023 polls. One officer (name withheld) said:

The solution is in the ballot, come 2023. So the ruling party will just get the votes according to its preference on awarding salaries. The nurses, as they are the highest paid, will give it the highest votes, followed by the soldiers and they will get the least from us as they have done on salaries. The salary scale used by government should be the replica of the votes that it gets. We need to use our brains and know what works for us.

Variances:

Public Service Commission (PSC) secretary Jonathan Wutawunashe said salary negotiations differed from sector to sector, resulting in variances. He added that the government remains committed to ensuring that civil servants’ welfare is well catered for.

Effects of disgruntlement:

Political analyst Eldred Masunungure said calls for better salaries by the police are the same situation that is prevailing in the public sector.

He added that while they are allowed to vote for the opposition, what is worrisome is their audacity to challenge the government, “which we have not seen happening previously.:

Masunungure added that there is a need for the government to act swiftly as the issue is a security threat.

Another analyst Effie Ncube said the government will likely lose its grip on the security sector.

Police must be congratulated for telling ZANU PF government like it will be at the Harmonised Elections in 2023 that they will perform [bhora musango].

This ZANU PF government is confused and rotten. Salary increments must be awarded at percentage level for all departments. What differs are starting salaries for each department, but salary increments must
be pegged at the same percentage level.

[ THIS ZANU PF GOVERNMENT HAS MORE ENEMIES THAN MEETS THE EYE ]

[ NGAAPINDE HAKE CHAMISA ]

[VOTE CCC FOR REAL CHANGE]

Yours sincerely

I agree that the police remuneration is pathetic, but so is the absence of professionalism in the force.
Strange, I don't hear nobody talking about it.

If the police want a better future and respect from the public then they had better vote for CCC2023 or continue to suffer and be hated by the public.

So toti salary yawedzerwa mototi pamberi neZANU ka. Varume regain ndidzokororere nyaya iyi ukaona usiri pamberi or pahutungamiriri kungava kuZANU kana MDC or CCC chako hapana. Makore andararama vanhu vanozviti veZANu kana MDC chandakavona chavakabenefiter isadza nenyama yeparally towards elections. Chechipiri vanorovana voga asi vanokwikwidzama vachidya dinner pamwe chete then point to note varungu vakasiya confusion muno so that we never develop ourselves.Look the laws which were meant to let us blacks down is the one on the act.The same prison and jails which were meant for us during the colonial rule are the same on our economic struggle . Point to note be brave this country which we call Zimbabwe belong to us we are the Zimbabweans and as Zimbabweans we have got different thoughts and ways of doing things but at all we all die then on judgement we will face our good and bad things. Those who might think they are brave they will face their braveness but that nullfy the fact that this country belong to us we pray then Lord if this is what we deserve let it be but if not then all our troubles will pass .
