Chitungwiza Municipality to lay off 400 workers

Plans by Chitungwiza Municipality to lay off 400 workers have sparked outrage, with the Zimbabwe Urban and Rural Councils Workers Union saying the decision is ill-conceived.

The Union’s Secretary-General Mr. Bernard Dhanda told Star FM news that Town Clerk Mr. George Makunde, failed to interpret the law by basing on section 12 of the Retrenchment Act, which was put in place to cater for those organizations that are financially incapacitated.

The Chitungwiza Council has since offered voluntary retrenchment up to the 24th of this month, and these retrenchments come after an audit showed that the workforce at the council is too big.
