Minister summoned to parliament over university salaries
University employees under the Zimbabwe State Universities National Joint Council (ZSUNJC) last year petitioned the minister saying they were earning poor wages and were left incapacitated. ZSUNJC is made up of the Zimbabwe Universities and Allied Workers Union (ZUAWU) as well as the Zimbabwe State Universities Union of Academics (ZISUUA). The group wants pre-July 2018 United States dollar salaries to be reinstated. They also want their employer to make simultaneous steps to ensure the attainment of regional level salary scales.
In a letter addressed to the ZSUNJC dated 20 February 2023, Clerk of Parliament Kennedy Chokuda said Murwira was set to appear before the Higher and Tertiary Education, Innovation, Science and Technology Development Committee on Wednesday 1 March.
