    Sabi Mine bid to evict workers thrown out


    ZVISHAVANE -Sabi Gold Mine’s bid to throw out three workers out of its houses has been thrown out by a Zvishavane Magistrate because the company failed to honour certain clauses of the contract.
    Mudyanago Zhou,Taurai Kawara and Mudzingwa Tichaona left the court with broad smiles on Friday when Magistrate Archie Wochiunga told them to stay put in the company houses.
    The workers who worked for the company for 33 years said the problem started in June 2013 when Sabi Mine started delaying salary payments. The workers were however assured that they will stay in the company houses and will be given living allowances ranging from $100-200 but none of this happened.
    On May 30 2014, company property was attached by a messenger of court and it fell under judicial management. In 2016 the company reopened and promised to call back its workers in batches.
    The company then took batch one of the employees and never recalled the others but went on to serve them with eviction notices of seven days contrary to the contract of employment that stipulates a notice period of six months.
    Outstanding benefits to employees are estimated at $45 000.
    “I worked for the company for 33 years and they never terminated my contract and now they want to evict me from the company house”, said Mudyanago Zhou.
