Gweru council workers complain over salary delays and safety clothing
Bulawayo Agenda
February 11, 2010

The Daily Agenda, published from Monday to Friday will provide information on critical governance and developmental issues. It is our hope that the information provided will be useful to our constituency of readership, particularly the leaders at the local level and civil society practitioners, in informing and shaping their choice of developmental objectives and initiatives.

Gweru - Council workers at Gweru City Council have complained over the delays in accessing salaries which are said to be three months overdue. They also complained that in addition to the salary delays many of them were required to conduct their duties without the necessary safety clothes. They said that they felt Council was not making an attempt to address their income problems as it was also failing to avail to them safety clothes.

Victoria Falls - Environment Africa is launching a Vic Falls green fund meant to keep the town clean and preserve its World Heritage sight status. The Victoria Falls branch is going to be coordinating a number of activities that will involve the municipality, ward councilors tourism and hospitality players as well as the general public ahead of the 2010 World Cup in June.
