Voluntary Retirement Of Civil Servants Gathers Pace

The government has begun accepting applications for voluntary retirement from civil servants.

The move was identified as a way to trim the government’s workforce and reduce costs.

Speaking to the Sunday News, Secretary to the Service Commissions Ambassador Jonathan Wutawunashe said:

The commission (Public Service Commission) continues to receive and process applications for voluntary retirement forwarded by heads of ministries.

Voluntary retirement is, by its very nature, voluntary, and it is encouraging to see that members who are so inclined are taking serious Government’s readiness to facilitate them.

At this stage, I cannot offer numbers, which I believe will become more significant as the year progresses beyond January. Those who retire are entitled to their gratuity and pension benefits.
