CHIREDZI BUREAU

CHIREDZI
– Chiredzi North Member of Parliament Robert Mukwena has been summoned to the offices of the Ministry of Labour in Chiredzi for a hearing on a case where he has failed to pay wages for a herdboy he employed since March 2015.
As a result a total of $1 245 is owed.
The hearing has been set for next Monday (May 30 2016) but efforts to locate the MP for delivery of the summons have so far been futile.
Simbarashe Machona Chindidi (23) is failing to locate his boss both at his Zaka rural home and his lodgings in Chiredzi and his number has also not been reachable.
According to the papers of the case, Chindidi was engaged as a domestic worker who looked after the MP's rural as well as his herd of cattle in Chabata Village, Zaka North.
The two agreed on a monthly salary of $100 per month but this was not honoured since March 2015 resulting in the arrears of $1245. Mukwena allegedly bragged that he was untouchable and nothing would happen to him no matter where the herdboy  reported the case.
Chindidi said that of recent, the MP has been avoiding him by coming home late and leaving very early.
Chindidi told The Mirror that he had since left employment because of the non-payment of his wages.
"You are hereby notified that the matter concerning alleged non-payment of wages to the tune of $1245 in respect of which reference was made on 23 May 2016 and to which you are party shall be heard before Mupunga P. at Old Mutual House, Chiredzi on 30 May 2016 at 10.00am," reads part of the letter from the Ministry of Labour.
Efforts by The Mirror to get a comment from Mukwena were fruitless.
"I worked for Mukwena for a long time as a domestic worker but he failed to pay my monthly wages and has since left his homestead. He owes me $1245 and efforts to make him pay failed and on our last encounter he bragged that nothing would happen to him no matter who I reported the case to. I am looking for him so that I can serve him with a letter from the Ministry of Labour but he is nowhere to be seen since he used to lodge rooms in Tshovani," said Chindidi.
