Harare City Council top managers and its thousands of workers are among the highest earners in the country, as they continue receiving mega salaries and other generous perks, despite the local authority's failure to provide basic services such as water.

According to the city's salary schedule, seen by NewsDay, suspended town clerk James Mushore earns over $12 000, a month, various directors are paid over $11 000 and ordinary farm guards netted more than a Zimbabwe Republic Police inspector, government medical doctors and most other civil servants.

A street cleaner, who is in grade 15, earns a gross salary of $520, more than what teachers get.
