Zimbabwe Civil Servants Salaries Delayed Again

Zimbabwe civil servants salaries delayed again

HARARE, (APP - UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 13th Augst,2016) - Zimbabwe's cash-strapped government will once again delay paying the salaries of civil servants for this month, state media reported Saturday, in a further sign of the worsening economic crisis.

The delays are likely to spark further discontent among the public service employees who are already battling to cope with the increasing cost of living. In July, government employees staged a strike over late pay, after going for weeks without income. The Herald newspaper reported that August salaries for army personnel, police, teachers and health workers would be delayed by at least a week.
