Workers Accused Of Joining Opposition Politics And Creating Unworkable Environment

Workers Accused Of Joining Opposition Politics And Creating Unworkable Environment

Mukachana Hanyani, a correspondent for The Herald, a state-run publication, has accused some government workers of creating an unworkable environment by joining opposition politics.

Hanyani’s statement comes as workers are threatening to down tools over poor salaries and working conditions. They met with the employer on Monday with the latter sticking to the initial offer of increasing the ZWL$ salary by 100 per cent.

Workers have rejected the offer saying it is insignificant given the soaring inflation. Hanyani said workers’ demands have to be reasonable. Said Hanyani:

Of late, some Government workers have directly and indirectly joined opposition politics, thereby creating an unworkable environment in the public sector. 

Whatever efforts the Government is undertaking to cushion workers are not recognised and appreciated.

Recently, Government awarded its workers a 100 percent salary increment on top of the US$175 Covid-19 allowance, as an inflationary cushion. 

The Government went further to promise the workers that negotiations for another round of salary increments would go on until both sides are satisfied. 

Surprisingly when everyone thought the Government has done well for its workers, Teachers Unions and Public Service Association on July 4, jointly gave the Government a 14-day notice of an industrial action for more salary increments and other benefits. 

Hanyani added that there was “a third hand manipulating government workers” to always blame the “Government even where it would have done well.” 

Hanyani added that workers are failing to appreciate government initiatives and such behaviour suggests that “some civil servants… are being used by agents of regime change who are vigorously fighting for the downfall of the ruling party.” 

Workers have always denied the accusations saying they don’t need to be paid by agents of regime change for them to realise that their salaries are not enough to cover their essential needs like food, shelter and school fees.

You can't say if people are not satisfied with outcome you point fingers at others, if the masses are not satisfied they are not satisfied. Due to economic upheavals that does not add up with people demands.

Not a very intelligent bootlicker but then being part of the Herald's propaganda machine it's not surprising.
If you are not happy you are a puppet of the west.

This is the worst administration ever to come out of this country called Zimbabwe,they create problems and blame them on others.They are always right.If they are not blaming sanctions,they are blaming CCC,if not CCC they are blaming doctors, teachers and nurses forgetting their ever conflicting and ever changing policies that are anti masses.


ZANU PF Government is conflicting itself with the Zimbabwe Constitution by accusing civil servants of having joined opposition politics.

The Zimbabwean Constitution allows citizens to practise politics as and when they want and from whatever side of politics they want.

It is the Government which is poisoning the work environment by offering its workers unworkable salaries. Government negotiates salaries in bad blood. No government will prosper with dissatisfied civil servants. Forewarned is forearmed.




Yours sincerely

Who convened the meeting? It is such kind of incompetence on the people surrounding the head of state that they take pride in wasting resources to make the president look like a fool and pretend everything is ok. @presidential advisors, i have mentioned this before, please consider all the comments on this section/page. The comments are valid. Give the president a reason to smile and have restful nights.

This Hunyani guy is a real fool.why mixing different.issue workers are realustically demanding a living salary in line.with the current.economic situation.Rtgs.has become obsolete so getting paid in rtgs is.retrogressive and un acceptable Gvt should offer of 100%for both.usa and.rtgs At least its acceptable.rtgs alone.gets eroded over a few days


How much is Hanyani being paid as a journalist by the Goverment mouthpiece the Herald? He should shut up we dont even read the Herald.

of late some government employees have directly and indirectly joined opposition politics thereby creating an unsuitable working environment. I almost vomited when I finished reading his statement. The rest handina kuverenga 'coz.
