Political analysts have lambasted Mr Tendai Biti, describing him as the worst Minister of Finance since independence.
They also called on civil servants to show Mr Biti the door during the next elections.
The remarks follow Minister Biti’s statement that civil servants are unlikely to get their annual bonus this year because the government does not have money.
Responding to the statement by Minister Biti that civil servants will not get bonus, Political analyst Dr Charity Manyeruke say civil servants should now come out of the woods and use the next plebiscite to remove characters like Minister Biti from the government.
Professor Jonathan Moyo, who described Biti as the worst Minister of Finance, said his last statement should be a wake up call for civil servants.
This is not the first time that Mr Biti has misfired as almost all of his policies are crafted against the civil servants.
Recently he sparked an uproar when he proposed to freeze civil servants salaries.
Meanwhile, civil servants have demanded that the government put its finance house in order to make sure that they get their bonuses if it still requires their full services ahead of the public examinations which start next month.
The announcement by the Minister of Finance, Mr Tendai Biti that government is facing challenges in raising funds to pay civil servants bonuses has angered the already disgruntled government workers.
In a telephone Interview, Secretary General for the Teachers Union of Zimbabwe, Mr Ottoman Magaya said government has failed to raise money for reviewing their salaries since the beginning of the year and continued failure to find money for their bonuses would only qualify that their employer has totally forgotten their welfare and such action would also force them to suspend their duties.
“No bonus will only mean no services. We cannot continue to toil when our employer who has never recognised our efforts since the beginning of the year appears not to care about our welfare,” said Mr Magaya.
The President of the Progressive Teachers Union of Zimbabwe, Mr Takavafira Zhou said Mr Biti should not make history for the wrong reasons as denying them their annual bonuses would be the first of its kind in the country’s history and challenged government to at least show some commitment towards the welfare of the civil servant.
“The development would be the first of its kind in the history of the civil service. Minister Biti’s ministry has never shown commitment to their salaries and has always been on the record for showing non-commitment,” Mr Zhou said.
Meanwhile, the Public Service Association President, Mrs Cecilia Alexander says her organisation has since written to the Minister of Finance to seek clarity and government’ s official position, which she said is likely to affect the smooth flow of public examinations which start next month.
Mr Biti said there might be no bonuses for civil servants this year because of the poor performance of the revenue collection and the depressed economic environment.
