It is an obligation on the State to pay its public servants a decent wage . That soldiers , policemen , teachers and other civil servants have been reduced to scroungers is an attack on their basic human rights pic.twitter.com/SE4zFJX1ep

In other news, iHarare had reported that a David Livingstone Primary School pupil brought a gun into his class while one of his classmates recorded a video on Monday last week.
It is alleged that the child produced the gun in the class when the teacher was out, and one of the pupils recorded a video with a smartphone.
The video was posted on a WhatsApp group and one parent raised alarm.
Following investigations, The Herald reports that the parents of the child have been identified.
A report of what happened will be released soon.
The filming of the event using a cellphone is yet another puzzle as it is against the school’s rules to carry such gadgets to school.
According to the school, the firearm was a toy but police investigating the incident say the video clip on WhatsApp shows a real revolver, and they would like to recover it.
