Herald Fires 80 more

The dark cloud continues to hover above the nation as the state owned daily newspaper last Friday served 80 more individuals with letters of dismissals.

Few months after announcing retrenchments plans, those who heeded the calls are smiling all the way to the bank as many continue to sing the #MondayBlues, while employers continue to terminate contracts based on the supreme court ruling.

According to our sources, these were not targeted at any specific department but were random across the publisher, as they embark on massive cost cutting measure, and seems the weakest link did not see the next weekend on the pay roll.

The employees are said to be served with the infamous 3 months notice of termination of contract and benefits and have packed up their all, already.

The Herald, Newsday and Daily news media house have all sent most of their employees packing , downsizing their operational bills, with mostly journalists being affected.

The major frightening thing is where are all these over 20 000 employees going to, how are they going to sustain their own families, what happens to their brothers and sisters who used to rely on them?
We maybe creating a new breed of criminals for our own land, unknowingly, In as much as all these companies deserve a sustainable operational bill.

  1. this is outrageous, this guyz are making fun out of the livelihoods of people, So you wholeheartedly serve a company and after helping them realise profits and expand their business intrests they dumb you,kuitwa juice card,If a state owned company is doing this then what level are they setting for the rest of the country.#mad

  2. I think this current tsunami is a deliberate move by political thugs, they just want to get rid of everyone so that they will benefit from the very little resources their inspired economy is bringing on the table. Its the Microcosm of the macrocosm, one overall decision maker affecting the entire country. Its a pity that the highest authorities are mum when people’s lives are at stake, families are being jeopardized, and they are saying “ZIMASSET” is not a failure yet this is nothing but a true reflection of how the ZIMASSET agenda has crippled the economy and its beneficiaries…Shame
