The Grant Thorndon report on Zimbabwe National Roads Authority (ZINARA) has revealed that the formation of the state entity in 2002 to date, ZINARA does not have approved Human Resources (HR) Policies and Procedures manual.
The absence of these HR Policies and Procedures has reportedly resulted in serious cases of nepotism on staff recruitment and promotion as well as awarding of benefits. Part of the report reads:
The entity currently does not have an approved Human Resources Policies and Procedures manual; however there is a draft policy which is being developed.
ZINARA has been in existence since 2002 however they are still operating without Human Resources policy.
I would like to bring to your attention the nepotism web at ZINARA which is hindering the organization from moving on smoothly since information is not easily obtainable even by Auditors and it is hidden to protect relatives and friends such that even those not connected are sidelined and threatened.
The scenario has cascaded down to an extent that promotions are now never on merit, contracts and benefits are given selectively. This abuse is spearheaded with the tacit approval of the HR department whose occupants are also beneficiaries of the rotten system and their qualifications are also questionable.
The report also claimed that nepotism has impinged on the effectiveness of external audits as subordinates and the senior management connive to cover for each other.
Courts have been flooded by corruption cases emanating from ZINARA.
