IMF advised Mthuli Ncube that Zimbabwe is not capable of paying civil servants more money and actually succeed.

This is what birthed the austerity for prosperity pioneered by Mthuli Ncube.

What is however shocking is that it’s the expenditure on the civil service which is being reduced while government officials get unjustified allowances and holidays.
