Chinhoyi Owes Workers More Than $1,2 Million- Report
The Herald reports Chinhoyi Municipality owes employees more than $1,2 million in salary arrears dating back to 2016.
An unnamed workers’ representative who spoke to The Herald said some of the workers had not received their salaries since August last year. The workers’ representative said:
We have seven months which we were not paid in 2016 and we have not received our salaries since August last year yet we are reporting for work every day. Those in management have been earning a living through allowances from various seminars which they create, twice or thrice per week and they give each other large sums of about $2 000 per person
When contacted for a comment, Chinhoyi Town Clerk Mr Maxwell Kaitano confirmed that council owed employees unpaid salaries. He however, denied allegations that the workers had not been paid since August last year. He also dismissed that council owed workers salaries from 2016.
