Council Farm Guards Earn More Than Most Civil Servants, Including Doctors

Former Harare mayor Bernard Manyenyeni has revealed that workers employed by the Harare City Council are grossly overpaid compared with workers employed by the government.

City council to decide on town clerk, directors’ fate

Shockingly, even a farm guard employed by the HCC earns more than most civil servants such as soldiers, doctors, nurses and teachers. The former mayor revealed this when posted the salaries on social media as he supported the month-long strike by medical doctors.

Said Manyenyeni,

Hail the Doctors’ Cause!! Facts and figures – let us not play politics with such realities.

I think this schedule was like for like but I think doctors are only using basic which is why I did not publicly refer to the 300+ figure being mentioned for doctors. Any comparisons with or for doctors must definitely include total packages for all jobs for it to be a correct comparison.

HCC can NOT afford what it is paying. It does not have the money. It is a disaster which cannot be copied!!..HCC is a financial tragedy. Gvt is underpaying council is overpaying…. hapana chipenyu…You know you don’t stop anyone from benchmarking any figures. It is standard management practice.

…Council operates in a context which determines what ratepayers can afford. They already owe $800m which they are failing to pay and you expected us to demand more from the very same people. The first question they can ask is what are you doing with what you are charging. The answer is: we are paying our workers THREE TIMES more.
