Bulawayo Magistrate quits, urges other civil servants to to tell Mugabe they are not happy with the salaries they are getting

A Bulawayo magistrate, Batanai Tuwe who recently left his job to join private practice, took to Twitter, where he criticised his former employers, the Judicial Service Commission and the Finance ministry, for underpaying magistrates, while judges were enjoyed a lot of benefits.

In series of tweets:

Why not tell mdara (Mugabe) the truth. Why won’t soldiers, who earn $400, tell the President that the money you are giving us is peanuts.

All the magistrates are tired of your lies. God is not happy though because you killed my dream. I swore an oath to God when I was appointed. You made me corrupt.

Tuwe said chief magistrate Mishrod Guvamombe had begged him not to quit, but he said he could not work without pay. Tuwe said the $650 monthly salaries paid to magistrates were unsustainable and had driven most of them into corruption.
