Sabastian Marume of Zimbabwe Manpower Development Fund (ZIMDEF) is said to be getting 2 salaries from the government one from ZIMDEF and another one from Public Service Commission (PSC), Zim Morning Post reports.
Marume was reportedly employed by the Tertiary Education Ministry as the quality assurance and standards director while also serving as the acting CEO in the ministry from 2018 to January 2020.
According to the publication, Marume was later on promoted to substantive ZIMDEF CEO but he continued to receive 2 salaries, one from ZIMDEF and another one from the Ministry where he was a director before his promotion:
…Marume was later promoted to the position of substantive CEO in January 2020 but has continued to receive the two salaries.
Speaking to the publication, Marume blamed the anomaly on the ZIMDEF HR department and confirmed he is indeed pocketing 2 salaries and said:
I was appointed substantive CEO in February after serving in an acting capacity since 2018 and was receiving my allowances from ZIMDEF and at the same time getting my salary from the ministry,
Marume, however, pointed out that the error was being corrected, and PSC was in the process of changing his employment status but was being delayed by the COVID-19 lockdown.
