Activist Linda Masarira has spoken out against the National Railways of Zimbabwe’s deplorable treatment of its workers. The parastatal evicted five families into the open from its Rugare staff quarters in Harare. The families were told that the houses were reserved for other people. They were later bundled into single quarters following a public outcry from human rights activists. However, some of the property belong to the families was damaged after being exposed to the rain.
All working men and women deserve to (be paid); their families deserve a home and all kids deserve to learn. No one has title deeds to this country.
These are families of workers who haven’t been receiving full salaries for seven years. After committing so much energy and sacrifice to the wholly-owned State parastatal, all they get is suffering and sorrow instead of salaries.
