Civil ser­vice ra­tio­nal­i­sa­tion way to go

Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - National News -

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
