Waziri wa Fedha wa Zimbabwe Patrick Chinamasa aliwaambia wabunge wa nchi hiyo kuwa ni wakati wa kaza mikanda . Hii ni kwa sababu nchi haikusanyi kodi ya kutosha kuweza kulipa mishahara.
Patrick Chinamasa told parliament salaries and allowances would also be cut and there would be no bonuses for two years. Most civil servants receive a bonus at Christmas, known at the “13th cheque”.
Zimbabwe is finding it hard to balance the books at the moment: There have been delays in paying civil servants their monthly salaries, including the police and army.
This is because the country is not collecting enough in taxes to pay them.
The measures announced by Mr Chinamasa are expected to reduce employment costs to about 60 per cent, it says.
Zimbabwe’s economic hardships have led to unprecedented protests against the government in the last few months.
