President Emmerson Mnangagwa has called on public servants, including legislators, to tighten their belts and stop making outrageous demands as the country goes through a lean restructuring spell.
This comes as legislators from both the MDC and Zanu-PF tabled a list of demands to Treasury that include an increase in their budget allocation as well as latest Land Cruiser vehicles among other things. Said Mnangagwa:
As we restructure, reform and rebuild our economy, cutting expenditure plays an important role. I wish to remind all public servants that we must lead by example, and serve the people with modesty and humility. The sacrifices we make today are the foundations of a better tomorrow.
