Salaries of Top Paid State Executives

(AllAfrica Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) THE government on Tuesday declared a $6,000 cap for top earners in the State-owned enterprises and local authorities. The move followed media revelations of mega salaries earned by executives in parastatals, many of which are reportedly insolvent, with ordinary workers going for months without pay.

Finance Minister Patrick Chinamasa confirmed the salary cap to reporters at a press conference in Harare.

"Government has been seized with the task of uprooting rampant corrupt practices, excessively high and unjustified salaries and allowances that most state enterprises, parastatals and local authorities have been, either illegally, procedurally, unreasonably or immorally awarding to chief executive officers," said Chinamasa.

"With immediate effect Cabinet has decided, as an interim measure, that no chief executive officer of any State enterprise, parastatal or local authority should receive a total pay package (basic salary plus benefits) which is above $6,000 per month for those in job level one," the treasury chief said.
