@David is the city of Harare not run by MDC Tsvangirai? Tsvangirai must know what's happening, remember he is the man who paid Karimatsenga lots of monies maybe he was also the the Harare city pay roll. Let's not blame Zanu-PF for Tsvangirai corruption

A President of a country is a public or civil servant paid from tax payers' money so his salary should be public. A civil servant's salary should be published and not remain a secret. The ZBC and PSMAS salary scandal should be fully investigated and offenders prosecuted. The appointing authorities did not perform their oversight duties presumably they were also benefiting some how. Here u have a Persec of Ministry of Information appointing Cuthbert DUBE chairman of ZBC and DUBE appointing George Charamba a director of PSMAS. Charamba and DUBE agree to pay Happison $40000 per month at ZBC in return for some financial gain. At PSMAS DUBE appoints his friend George Charamba to the PSMAS Board and agrees to pay Dube $230000 per month and in return the PSMAS Board pays hefty board fees and perks. At City of Harare Chombo approves obscene Management salaries in return for pieces of land and other financial benefits. This is typical of the Zanu Pf patronage system which is corrupt to the core. The corrupt system is driven by appointing authorities in these cases, Ministries of Information and Local govt approved the salaries or did not play their oversight role. The entire PSMAS Board should be fired due to collective responsibility of the Board. There should be no cover up of this corruption cancer.

@bheki, that's true bro, its for a cover up. If that was a true reflection of his salary, malasia would have told him that his medical aid is exsorsted.
@tshuma, you may say it again, olusu and others have bought these towns due to high level of corruptions as it is competition to who can come out shifts with more money others.

Yes its necessary such that if not known the tax payers money finds cracks and disapper. Not only him every civill servant to the cleaner if there is one should have their salaries recited by everyone. We r tired of thieves who go to work for the sake of stealing not working. We will better of without a gvt than having a team of thieves. Those who don't want with their salaries to be known by public, they should leave posts for those who understand transparency.

That small salary is a mere outer cover to lead the public astray, let's take into serious consideration the billions of dollars they stash away illegally.
28 Jan 2014 at 19:44hrs
Yes it is necessary as he is a civil servant. This helps in eradicating this talk of the day 'corruption' which is wiping the country to its grave. This eliminates the likes of 'olusu', muchecheteres, dubes, chiyangwas, kuruneris and company from making this country their purchased property.
28 Jan 2014 at 19:36hrs
Its necessary coz tax payers must know how much they are donating from their poor salaries.
28 Jan 2014 at 19:34hrs
Give the confidentiality of this subject and distorted figures that go with it, I don't think we can get the correct figure of hiis salary. We will all remain guessing and suposing. Ew may have those who know it as they are there, but will never divulge.
28 Jan 2014 at 19:32hrs
But with the way things are going, i promise you people like Ignatious Chombo and Obert "lusu" Mpofu are quaking in their boots. To me they 2 are the most corrupt people in Mugabe's cabinet. They are the "greediest" if such a word exists. I have never seen such buffoonery in my life, idiots are buying a whole small town
28 Jan 2014 at 19:31hrs
When we were growing up, indeed the President and his deputies, salary would be announced when there was an increment in the news. Now we have to dig deep in order to find it, because the information is heavily guarded. Anyways, i just wanted to say, its possible that Mugabe's salary may still be in the same range of $25,000 per year.
