The Zimbabwe Government is so broke that a drastic change for pensioners’ pay dates has been effected from starting from next month.
Yesterday the Public Service Commission secretary Mrs Pretty Sunguro issued a statement that payments would be staggered between two days without giving any explanations.
War veterans’ pension; war veterans’ spouses and children’s pension; ex-political prisoners, detainees and restrictees’ pension; ex-political prisoners, detainees and restrictees’ and children’s pension; and national heroes’ spouses and children’s pension will be paid on September 8. All other pensioners will receive their salaries on September 11.
“The Public Service Commission wishes to advise that the Ministry of Finance and Economic Development has staggered pensioners’ pay dates. Any inconvenience caused is sincerely regretted,” she said. – State Media
