Zimdef rub­bishes ‘no al­lowance for stu­dents’ claims

Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - National News - Than­deka Moyo Chron­i­cle Re­porter

ZIM­BABWE Man­power De­vel­op­ment Fund (Zimdef) has rub­bished false­hoods cir­cu­lat­ing on so­cial me­dia pur­port­ing that the or­gan­i­sa­tion is no longer pay­ing in­dus­trial at­tach­ment al­lowances to stu­dents.

In a state­ment, Zimdef ad­vised mem­bers of the pub­lic and its stake­hold­ers to ig­nore the mes­sage.

“The pub­lic and all our stake­hold­ers are ad­vised that the in­for­ma­tion is un­founded, ma­li­cious and false.

“It is aimed at caus­ing alarm and de­spon­dency among stu­dents and the pub­lic.

‘‘The fund is still pay­ing the stu­dents’ in­dus­trial at­tach­ment al­lowances as per its man­date in terms of the Man­power Plan­ning and De­vel­op­ment Act of 1984,” read the state­ment.”

Ac­cord­ing to Zimdef, they have no employee by the name Ter­rence Gata who is al­legedly rep­re­sent­ing the or­gan­i­sa­tion as spokesper­son in the cir­cu­lat­ing mes­sage.

“We sin­cerely re­gret any in­con­ve­nience caused due to these false­hoods clearly aimed at tar­nish­ing the im­age of Zimdef and the Min­istry of Higher and Ter­tiary Ed­u­ca­tion, Sci­ence and Tech­nol­ogy De­vel­op­ment” — @thamamoe.
