Hwange Colliery workers go for almost three years without pay


Hwange Colliery workers have now gone for almost three years without pay and some of them have received eviction notices from their residences because of failing to pay rentals.

This was revealed by Zimbabwe Peace Project in its August monthly report.

The organisation also said in Tsholotsho food for work programs went on with people involved in rehabilitation of roads and clinics and getting 50kg bags of maize per month.



“Some people did not get their June allocation and when the August rations came they were told they would not get extra rations, as the June one was the initiative of Member of Parliament Professor Jonathan Moyo. Most families are still surviving on one meal a day due to a severe food deficit in the province,” ZPP said.

ZPP also said the situation and political environment was relatively calm in comparison to the month of July that was full of protests and political uncertainty.

“Most political parties went about campaigning and recruiting members especially in Tsholotsho. The most visible political parties were Zanu PF, MDC T, PDP and Zimbabwe People First,” ZPP said
