Please consider the plight of pensioners

13 Nov 2018 at 13:33hrs | Views

There is urgent need for the government to seriously consider the plight of pensioners most of whom are now very old, frail and ill. These pensioners are getting peanuts if not nothing from their pension schemes. Your Excellence E.D Mnangagwa and Hon M. Ncube minister of finance, please release and implement the findings and recommendations of the report by the commission on dollarisation of pension funds which was submitted long back.

It is a common fact that pension houses deliberately and maliciously connived to prejudice the pensioners of their actual worthiness on dollarisation. These pension houses made super profits and made numerous investments only to deny the sole contributors a share of the cake. There is urgent need for justice as any further delay is justice denied. Pensioners are now living miserable lives and dying paupers.
