Over 400 “ghost” youth officers identified in Manicaland Province

While visiting youth projects that benefited from the $40 million Youth Development Fund in Manicaland Province, the Parliamentary Portfolio Committee on Youth and Indigenisation heard that an excess of 429 youth officers were employed in the province.

Although a youth development officer in the province, Primrose Ndoro said that the 429 officers are awaiting redeployment to other ministries, the MPs suspected that these officers are ghost workers. Ndoro said:

The total number of youth development officers in Manicaland is 656, and we have a strength of 227, and an excess of 429. Each ward is supposed to have three youth officers and that is why the number was said to be excessive, but some of them were redeployed to the Ministry of Sport while others await redeployment.
