Such a relief for Zimbabwean civil servants, the Government has released December pay dates for civil servants, with those in the health sector and uniformed forces being paid on December 21 while the rest will receive their salaries after Christmas.
Mr Sifiso Ndlovu, Zimbabwe Teachers’ Association chief executive officer allegedly said that It was communicated to the Apex chairperson (Mrs Cecilia Alexander) who has sent it to unions. It’s not a negotiated arrangement but it’s a statement from Government indicating when they’re ready to pay.
”If you calculate the number of days from the last date of payment it means they are broke. It means their families are not entitled to any festive enjoyment and they will have a postponed Christmas,” he added.
