Chitungwiza Municipality Town Clerk Mr George Makunde has issued another circular (No. 4) after workers resisted the first call for voluntary retrenchment. In the new circular the local authority is now targeting workers who are experiencing health problems and those nearing retirement. Voluntary retrenchment has been extended to August 23.
Speaking to The Herald, Chitungwiza Municipality Workers Union president Reverend Ephraim Katsina described council’s actions as barbaric considering that it has not yet finished paying salaries for workers who were retrenched in 2015.
