HARARE – Serious cases of absenteeism have reportedly hit the Harare City Council as workers are failing to report for duty because of late payment of salaries.

Water and Allied Workers Union of Zimbabwe president Themba Musarurwa who is representing workers being charged for absenteeism said some workers have not been paid for a long time now.

“Some workers went to the Easter holiday without salaries, now we are going to the Independence holiday. So how do they survive?” said Musarurwa.

Musarurwa said some council workers are walking long distances to work and they are struggling to make ends meet.

“We have also been told that our employer is failing to transact because of the new currency and workers are even failing to pay rentals on time,” he said.

However, Harare mayor Jacob Mafume blamed the harsh economic environment facing the country for the development.

“As you are aware we are enduring a tough economic environment but we are trying hard to pay our workers on time,” he said.
