ZCTU Calls For Protests Against Mthuli Ncube’s 2% Tax Starting Thursday

Zimbabwe Congress of Trade Unions (ZCTU) has called on its members to protest against Finance minister Mthuli Ncube’s 2% tax starting on Thursday.

In an interview with NewsDay, ZCTU president Peter Mutasa dismissed Minister Ncube’s review published on Friday saying:

Nothing has changed, but nothing turns on the purported changes and clarifications. In fact, the changes simply show that the [Finance] minister [Mthuli Ncube] was attempting to placate the rich and ignore the poor. He still wants to charge the additional taxes on school fees transfers in addition to Pay as You Earn tax and the gazetted minimum of $10 is a big joke considering the current price increases.

In a statement, ZCTU called upon workers, residents and citizens to join the demonstrations in all regional capitals — Harare, Chinhoyi, Gweru, Bulawayo, Masvingo and Mutare.
