    ZISMIWU accused of registering cars in executives’ names


    CHIREDZI – Some members of the Zimbabwe Sugar Milling Industry Workers Union (ZISMIWU) have accused executive members of looting the organization by registering new cars in the names of individuals at the top.
    However ZISMIWU Vice President Brawl Chikandiwa dismissed the allegations as falsehoods created by rivals in the union. 
    He said there are no union properties registered in individuals' names but he declined to discuss some of the properties at the centre of controversy.
    The Mirror is however informed that a Nissan Hardbody ABD 1846 and a Nissan Caravan commuter omnibus ADM 5745 are registered in the names of certain individuals. 
    As a result of these and other allegations Tongaat Hulett employees under ZISMIWU have called for the dissolution of the union`s executive.
    The workers also accused some of the executives of working at the union in violation of the constitution which says that workers fired by the employer must also relinquish their positions at the union.
    "Three executive members, President of ZISMIWU Godfrey Katere, Vice President Brawl Chikandiwa and Committee Member Tavonga Vandirai were expelled from work by our employer in 2016 after being involved in a 2015 strike which almost crippled the sugar industry. The three continue to hold their posts which is against Chapter 10 of the union`s executive" said former ZISMIWU president Simbarashe Nyemba Nyemba who works at Hippo Valley.
