Army Boss In Pensions Arrears

The National Social Security Authority (NSSA) has named and shamed controversial army chief, Major General, Martin Chedondo among new farmers who had not remitted workers' pension contributions between December 2009 and June 2010.

Court papers seen by Radio VOP show that Chedondo, the Zimbabwe Defence Forces (ZDF) Chief of Staff, who owns Dindingwe Farm in Marondera and employs 56 workers, was recently hauled to the high court by NSSA which is demanding payment of $5 972.

Chedondo recently issued brazen remarks that the army must interfere in politics and support President Robert Mugabe’s Zanu (PF) party and labelled other political parties as agents of imperialism.

“The defendant has despite demand failed/neglected to plaintiff the total sum of $5 972 in respect of both outstanding contributions and surcharges,” reads part of NSSA declaration filed in the High Court.

NSSA has also sued Attorney General Johannes Tomana, Munyaradzi Kereke, the former advisor to central bank governor Gideon Gono, former Mashonaland West Governor Nelson Samukange, who owns Rukoba Farm in Banket, Local Government, Rural and Urban Development Minister, Ignatius Chombo, the Zimbabwe Broadcasting Corporation and its reporter Reuben Barwe, who runs a farm in Norton and Air Zimbabwe over unpaid pension contributions.
