Zimbabwean Ambassadors’ Residential Houses & Offices In Rotten State – Moyo

Foreign Affairs Minister, S. B. Moyo has revealed that Zimbabwean ambassadors’ residential houses and offices are in a very sorry state.

Moyo was giving oral evidence before the parliamentary portfolio committee on Foreign Affairs chaired by Makonde National Assembly MP, Kindness Paradza, in Harare on Monday. He said:

Our ambassadors were in some cases having to hitchhike to work because we didn’t have vehicles for them. We have since managed to purchase vehicles that they will use in their respective areas of jurisdiction.

We have sent them money which they will use to buy cars in the countries they operate. The conditions they were operating under were such that some offices had no furniture at all.

Some of the houses they stayed in were not habitable, for example the one in South Africa was leaking and dilapidated.  We also need to have a maintenance plan. The biggest problem facing our embassies is maintenance so we need to renovate structures so that they are up to the required standards.

This comes at a time when the country is also faced with other challenges including shortage of medicines, shortages of fuel and electricity, and severe starvation due to El-Nino induced drought.

The country is also experiencing soaring inflation which risks awakening memories of 2008 when hyperinflation reached a record high, 231 million percent as per official statistics.

The inflation has eroded salaries of workers with most of them now living below the poverty datum line. Workers representatives have since warned of imminent protests over the matter
