– Five members of the Zimbabwe Sugar Milling Industry Workers Union (ZISMIWU) have been fired for alleged illegal activities during an industrial strike in December 2015.
The majority of those fired are understood to be executive members of ZISMIWU who involved themselves in illegal activities during the strike including locking up gates to the company to force everyone not to go to work.
Allegations came out in President Mugabe's meeting with Masvingo MPs recently that the workers were urged to go on with the strike by the Minister of State for Masvingo, Shuvai Mahofa who said the action had the blessings of President Mugabe.
ZISMIWU president Freedom Madungwe whose job is also on the line as he is still appearing before a disciplinary committee confirmed the developments.
He said he received various calls to the effect that there are some workers who were sacked for their roles during the strike.
"I can confirm that but I don't have enough facts as to who was affected and who is going to be affected. The company is holding disciplinary proceedings against a number of workers for violating the company`s code of conduct during last year`s strike. I received information that some of the workers were sacked but I need to verify before giving you a full comment regarding that" said Madungwe.
The Mirror is reliably informed that the workers who were sacked include ZISMIWU executive members Brawal Chikandiwa, Elias Madziva, Gwembe and Zunga who is a Vice Chair in Triangle Central Workers Committee.
