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
