Zimbabwe hunts ‘ghost workers’

Drive to find thousands of people reportedly paid salaries for political loyalty.

Zimbabwe has launched a drive to find out who is getting paid by the state and whether their jobs are legitimate.

The bid to reform its civil service comes amid claims thousands of people are being paid for jobs they do not do, in exchange for their political support.

Critics of the survey say it is a political witch hunt in a bid to weaken Robert Mugabe, the country’s president.
