ZCTU calls for stayaway
DEPUTY CHIEF WRITER
THE Zimbabwe Congress of Trade Unions (ZCTU) has called on workers to stay at home, claiming they had received several reports of workers being harassed at army and police-manned checkpoints and failing to get transport to work due to shortages of Zupco buses.
“What we are saying is that going to work is now a risk vocation. We are also saying workers should not endanger themselves by waking up early because they would need to find transport to go to work, risking their lives to robbers and humiliation at the hands of security forces, who are asking them to go back home,” Mutasa said.
The police are on record saying that the operation was in line with the government’s lockdown regulations.
