Tsvangirai benefits cut

Tsvangirai benefits cut
Published: 14 July 2015 (728 Views)
Former Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai has not received his terminal benefits two years after leaving government amid claims he was being fixed by President Robert Mugabe because of their political differences.

Tsvangirai's spokesperson Luke Tamborinyoka yesterday said the MDC-T leader had not received any benefits from government despite the fact that he was entitled to them.

"It is true that he has received nothing and there has not been any communication either way," Tamborinyoka said.

Tamborinyoka insinuated that the former Zimbabwe Congress of Trade Unions leader was being punished for refusing to recognise Mugabe's election following the controversial 2013 polls.

However, he said the government had no right to withhold the benefits.

"But these are his entitlements and he earned them. However, he is not going to beg anyone," Tamborinyoka said.

"If the condition is that he must first say the 2013 election was legitimate for them to give him his dues, then tough luck.

"That is not going to happen. He is not going to endorse that fraud."

A senior MDC-T official said Tsvangirai was legally entitled to terminal benefits.

"He has not received anything from the government, not his pension, not even a car," the official said.
