CIVIL servants in Zimbabwe are set to get a USD75 COVID-19 allowance over the next three months.

They have also been awarded a 50 percent salary increment.

The country’s Treasury on Wednesday also announced that pensioners will receive a flat, non-taxable, COVID-19 allowance of USD30 per month.

“Government would therefore wish to advise all members of the civil service that the measures have been put in place while a comprehensive impact assessment and framework for mitigating against the downside macroeconomic risks of the wage proposals made to the government on the budget and the economy are being carefully worked out,” the Ministry of Finance said in a statement.
