ZTA retrenches workers

Zimbabwe Tourism Authority has retrenched 35 workers following a skills audit ordered by government.

This comes at a time when government has ordered parastals to implement skills audit and have been encouraged to downsize their staff.

The retechments are set to hit other parastatals such as ZESA, ZINARA and ZIMRA as government looks to cut down on its ballooning wage bill.

Government enterprises are restructuring their business in line with the obtaining operating environment and to maximise cost efficiencies.
The wage bill, which gobbles up 90 percent of government revenues, leaves very little space for investment in major infrastructure development projects.
