Kasukuwere Tells Harare Council, ‘Cut Your Hefty Salaries Instead Of Targeting Low Earners’

Saviour Kasukuwere Local Government minister yesterday challenged Harare City Council officials to cut down on their hefty salaries to reduce the local authority’s ballooning wage bill instead of targeting low-income earners in its proposed retrenchment exercise.

Officially opening a housing project by Homelink in Tynwald, Harare, Kasukuwere said council was wrong in trying to fire 3 000 employees on three months’ notice without addressing the issue of managers’ mega salaries.

Kasukuwere, however, said unproductive workers should be laid off.- Source-newsday
