President Emmerson Mnangagwa has expressed disappointment over Teachers’ representative organisations which are working with foreign governments to undermine the second republic’s efforts to channel resources towards improving conditions of service in the public sector.
The President said this when he officially commissioned new buses and vehicles for the Public Service Commission at Morris Depot in Harare this Wednesday.
President Emmerson Mnangagwa this Wednesday commissioned 13 buses and 30 service delivery vehicles to be used by the public service commission.
This brings the number of buses that have been disbursed to the PSC to 108.
The President highlighted that government will continue to channel resources towards improving the conditions of service in the public sector.
“My government is constantly channelling resources towards improving the conditions of service for the public sector workers. The workers are indeed the most important resource that facilitates the implementation of the NDS 1 as we work towards a prosperous and empowered upper middle-income economy society by 2030. Indeed, government’s commitment to better the plight of its workforce is demonstrated by the recent award if United States dollar bonuses extended to civil servants,” he said.
President Mnangagwa also highlighted that besides the buses and vehicles, Government has also implemented an array of non-monetary benefits which include low cost housing residential stands and the mutual savings fund.
The President, however, noted that while as an employer, government is implementing all these measures, some employees are working with foreign governments to undermine workplace harmony.
“Regrettably, while as an employer government is implementing all these measures, it is disheartening that some employees as has now been revealed are working with foreign governments to undermine workplace harmony as well as national peace and security. Fortunately, my government has the requisite capacity to ensure workplace harmony and guarantee national peace and security,” said the President.
As the President saluted all patriotic, committed and loyal government workers for the patience that they have shown in the face of various economic challenges, he reminded the nation that Zimbabweans are masters of their own destiny.
Improving the welfare of workers and service delivery is among the priorities of the second republic.
