By A Correspondent- President Manyara Irene Muyenziwa has warned the government that the disgruntlement within the civil service is a real time bomb which threatens the stability of the nation.
The statement comes in the wake of revelations of the increased incidences of armed robberies by security sector stalwarts such as soldiers and police details.
Said President Muyenziwa:
“The deplorable state of most government insitutions, poor remuneration and corruption are a direct threat to the nation and more irreparable damage is likely to be caused if the current leadership does not address the grievances of civil servants.
The Parliament recently heard that the morale especially in police camps is at its lowest ebb due to poor remuneration and resources.
It is not only the Police but the Army and the Prisons are equally affected. This therefore means the concerns of all civil servants should be addressed immediately.
Zimbabwe’s civil service earns less than any other civil service in the Southern region and that is a cause for concern.”
President Muyenziwa, if she wins next year, will definitely improve the welfare of the civil servants as well as improving the general working conditions.
FORUS believes in transparency, sincerity and professionalism when engaging various civil servants organizations sprouted across the nation.
The party has attractive policies which it intends to implement soon after winning 2023 elections.
