Govt accused of using “ghost workers” in civil servants bonus survey

Unions have accused Government of targeting “ghost” workers in a survey meant to gauge civil servants preferences regarding the issue of outstanding bonuses.

Apex Council member, Raymond Majongwe on Tuesday said the survey is “intimidating and targeting the wrong people”. Said Majongwe:

As has become the norm, the government has turned to ghost workers for a process that should benefit civil servants. They are not asking actual civil servants, because we know that real government workers want their bonus in cash and not stands.

However, Public Service minister Prisca Mupfumira denied the accusations and said that one can go to any ministry and ask for the forms. She also said nobody is being intimidated and that they are working with real people on the ground. Zimbabwe Teachers’ Association chief executive officer, Sifiso Ndlovu labelled the survey as a charade stating that the fact that the survey is being conducted by the employer intimidates workers. Manjongwe said that there have received reports of teachers being intimidated in Mashonaland West and that the survey is being conducted by State security agents.
