RE: DEATH OF COMRADE LOVEMORE MATOMBO
The Zimbabwe Congress of Trade Unions (ZCTU) has learnt with great shock and sadness on the passing on of Comrade Lovemore Matombo, on 27 January 2020.
Comrade Matombo, a former ZCTU President, and also President of CASWUZ was President of the ZCTU until the 2011 Congress.
The ZCTU leadership, General Council Members, Affiliate Leadership, ZCTU Structures, Workers of Zimbabwe, Civic Society and Community leaders here present, I want to welcome you all to this very important occasion. ZCTU today joins the rest of the world in the fight against Gender Based Violence. The commemoration takes place from 25 November to 10 December every year and it is a time to join forces and strengthen our fight to eliminate this serious crime to humanity.
THE Zimbabwe Congress of Trade Unions (ZCTU) is greatly disturbed by the government’s lack of seriousness in resolving its dispute with the striking doctors. The continued strike by the doctors is causing untold suffering and unnecessary death of ordinary Zimbabweans as the strike has paralyzed operations at state-run hospitals.
The Zimbabwe Congress of Trade Unions (ZCTU) notes with disappointment the uninspiring National Budget Statement by the Minister of Finance and Economic Development, Professor Mthuli Ncube presented to Parliament on November 14, 2019 under the theme ‘Gearing for Higher Productivity, Growth and Job Creation’.
