Government is losing $1,6 million monthly to unqualified 3 187 youth officers whom President Robert Mugabe ordered to be reinstated at a Zanu-PF rally in Chinhoyi.
The Herald reports that the youth officers were unqualified as they had no, or had less than five Ordinary Level passes, while others only had Grade Seven certificates. Their ages ranged from 25 to 64 years and the majority of the youth officers were between the ages of 30 and 40 years. Civil Service Commission (CSC) chairperson Dr Mariyawanda Nzuwah yesterday told The Herald that Public Service, Labour and Social Welfare Minister Prisca Mupfumira had ordered them to freeze the retrenchment of the youth officers following Mugabe’s order. About $3,8 million is required to pay the youths notice of intention while another $12,8 million would be needed for terminal benefits.
