UNITED States-headquartered fast-food concern, KFC which officially open its drive-through restaurant in Bulawayo under its local franchise, KFC Zimbabwe, on Friday 4 August has dismissed a letter doing rounds on the social media.

The letter purporting to be from KFC Zimbabwe which the KFC facebook administrator dismissed had the following lines, "KFC Zimbabwe takes note of their blunder of side-lining the local people from Bulawayo when they employed the staff for their establishment.

"We would like to apologise to the people of Bulawayo. We pledge to uplift the community of Bulawayo and we are going to correct this. We are going to replace all of our staff we brought from Harare and leave a few who will assist in the training of the new staff.

"We are going to be conducting interviews on Monday August 7 2017 at 10 am KFC Bradfield. We want to create equal opportunities for all sons and daughters of the City of Kings hence our decision to call all those who finished O Level and have a C or better grade in Ndebele Language."

KFC Zimbabwe diplomatic manager, Taurai Vaki, said the company has employed 45 people at its Bulawayo drive-through restaurant. Local pressure groups have been alleging that KFC brought people from Harare and ignored the plight of locals.

However, KFC dismissed the allegations.

KFC facebook administrators said, "It is Absolutely untrue and the message is not from KFC Zimbabwe.

"All our staff are locally employed and were hired a while back as training is intensive. Any CVs can be sent to careers@kfczimbabwe.co.zw for future opportunities."

The official opening of the KFC Zimbabwe's Bulawayo branch did not go well Saturday as police clashed with Bulawayo residents who felt marginalised on job opportunities.

Below is the letter circulating on social media:
