Chamisa fails to pay party workers
“We have not been furnished with the financial statements from the previous administration and we are in the process of finding out what the old administration did and we are still trying to find out.“We do not know where the money for the wages of workers went, we don’t know where the more than $4 million they got last year went. Workers have told us that they have not been paid in the past two months. We are not sure about the $4,5 million that was received by the party last year.
“The workers were paid in January and February. We only have March which is outstanding and which was affected by the lockdown. We are, however, in the process of ensuring that any outstanding payments are paid off,” said Hwende.
“The money has not been released because of Covid-19, but I think claims by the Mwonzora group are correct. My understanding is that the Alliance is a grouping of several parties and the MDC is the bigger party in that Alliance so they have to agree on how the money should be shared among them,” said Ziyambi.
