Civil Servants Paid More Than Private Sector Workers – Mthuli

Finance and Economic Development Minister Mthuli Ncube said the Government was currently the best payer among employers in the country.

Ncube insisted that the government was doing far much better than the majority of private sector players with its lowest-paid workers, among them the office orderly, now on a monthly salary of about $14 000. He said:

The lowest-paid civil servant right now is on $14 500. A teacher right now will be earning close to $19 000. And the lowest paid civil servant is actually an office orderly. We are way ahead of the private sector in general.

Ncube made the remarks during an interview with Zimpapers Television Network (ZTN) on Tuesday evening.

He was unpacking the recently launched government’s economic blueprint, the National Development Strategy (NDS1).

Ncube also said under NDS1, the Government will adopt a different approach in its remuneration of civil servants, to ensure that it gives its workers a sustainable and living wage.

He said under the Transitional Stabilisation Plan (TSP), priority appeared to be inclined towards sustaining budget surpluses.

  1. Mthuli is made, how can you say you are paying more than private sectors, Private sectors are now paying their employee salaries as per interbank rate, and you are still taking nonsense while you guys are busy paying your selves in USD.

    Imagine end of September when a teacher got net salary of ZWL3000, the same month a PIck n Pay, OK and World Food Supermarket Till operator Employee got a Net of ZWL$14 000, please do your Maths

    You guys have really made educated people look like fools. Zvakutonyadzisa kutaura kuti ndakadzidza, even though Mugabe was Harsh but at least he respected Education and he could control zvimwe zvinhu kana zvakuita go out of control.

    this Whole teacher getting US200 story, is it really the Net salary or Gross, because if its Gross you will be joking.
