MDC and ZANU-PF battle for civil servants


The Movement for Democratic Change and the Zimbabwe African National Union- Patriotic Front are now battling for the sympathy of civil servants, the biggest labour force in the country. MDC Shadow Minister for Labour Paurina Mpariwa today called for fresh elections saying ZANU-PF had failed to turn around the country’s economy and to address the issue of civil servants’ salaries. Public Service and Labour Minister Nicholas Goche said the fate of civil servants will be addressed next Wednesday when the government meets representatives of civil servants. “We have our position as government and we will first reveal that position, what we have to offer and negotiate from.” Mpariwa said Goche should implement and honour his party’s promises made during the 2013 elections that all public servants would be awarded above poverty datum line salaries and have better working conditions.
