Civil service rationalisation way to go
EDITOR — I was glad to hear Minister for Labour and Social Welfare Mupfumira saying that despite the challenges for the time being, efforts to reduce the government`s wage bill are still on course.
While some see this as a drastic measure, I believe this is the only way our country can grow its economy.
If a chunk of the national revenue is freed up this means there will be more resources to channel towards other needs like healthcare and education.
As soon as those sectors are on their feet it means more jobs will be created both in the private and public sectors, which is a plus for our economy.
I am of the thinking that experienced Ministerial employees who have potential to run small to medium business units should be given the capital outlay to start their own businesses.
This may help add a professional feel to our informal and small to medium sectors of the economy. Mashonganyika
