The Ministry of Finance and Economic Development announced on Thursday night the dates it will pay civil servants their annual bonus.
In a statement, the treasury said that civil servants, security forces included, would get the bonus “computed based on basic salary, housing and transport allowances”.
The Ministry revealed that the health caregivers and the security sector which comprises of members of the Zimbabwe National Army, Air Force of Zimbabwe, Zimbabwe Prison and Correctional Services, Zimbabwe Republic Police would be the first to be paid on November 15.
Education sector workers would be paid on December 17, while the rest of the civil servants will get theirs on December 20.

Finance Minister, Professor Mthuli Ncube has attributed the ability to pay bonuses in the designated year to austerity measures which the government embarked on.
