“Legally, There Is Nothing Called Incapacitation,” Govt Responds To Workers

Justice Minister, Ziyambi Ziyambi has said that government workers’ industrial action over unsustained salaries and poor working conditions was not lawful.

He told the Daily News this Friday that the workers have to take a legal route if their grievances are to be addressed. He said:

Legally, there is nothing called incapacitation. This doesn’t have a legal basis. They must take legal channels so that their concerns can be addressed. 

You just don’t declare incapacitation and remain at your homes. The solution is to continue with negotiations. As government we respect the law that’s why we went to court and the doctors were told to return to work.

His remarks come as government workers across sectors have notified the employer that they will be suspending their services due to incapacitation caused by the erosion of their salaries by the soaring inflation.

Workers are demanding at least US$475 or its equivalence of $7 267 at the prevailing interbank rate for the least paid employee and doctors have since defied a government directive and Labour Court ruling which ordered them to return to work.

  1. Ziyambi you are living large

    Zanu is rewarding you handsomely for your oppression of suffering Zimbabweans

    One day this that you doing will eat you

    You will go down in history as one of the most repressive Zanu front man

    Your kids are well fed

    You get top notch medical care

    You drive expensive cars while the majority suffer

    Chris Hani famous statement talked about people like yourself the elitists

  2. What does this Minister smoke ? The paltry given to Civil servants is not enough to last a week. Wake up Minister and smell the coffee.

  3. Characteristic of these wicked Zanoids they talk of legal routes which they know they hve twisted by awarding hefty salary increaments, any legal route taken has obvious rulings Zanu gvt the paymasters win. So wats the use. Go and hang Ziyambi. You derseve to be in hell.

  4. Its hypocracy for one to ask another to use legal means to correct an illegality he or she is committing to thst person. Very self serving. It is unconstitutional to obtain labour at slave-wages. It is unlawful for the employer to be subsidised by the employee. It is unethical to ask a doctor to go to a hospital and dispensing his brains on the sick who will not have medicines at the end of that diagnosis. Some people need to come down their high horses
