Buying votes

EDITOR – Zanu (PF)'s attempt to buy the vote of civil servants by increasing their salaries through the back door is bound to fail.

By by-passing the treasury and making payments direct to the Salaries Services Bureau, the Ministry of Mines has set a bad precedent. I commiserate with the poor but dedicated civil servant who is now a pawn caught between the power games of Zanu (PF) and MDC.

This vote buying by Zanu (PF) is too little too late because we all know that Zanu (PF) since independence never championed the welfare of the workers hence the formation of MDC by mostly trade unionist. A mere US$31 will not buy votes. – HASANI HASANI, by e-mail
