Methodist Caretaker Takes Church To Labour Court Seeking US$54k in Compensation
A caretaker employed by a Methodist Church in Budiriro has approached the Labour Court, demanding US$54,000 in compensation, alleging that he has not received his salary for the past 15 years.
Makomborero Musiiwa is pursuing legal action against the church, asserting that he was deceived into signing a document that changed his job designation from caretaker to an ordinary member, resulting in him not being remunerated for his services.
Musiiwa, who was evicted from the church premises on November 22, claims that the church authorities abruptly canceled his lease agreement.
Seeking redress, he took his case to the Ministry of Labour, providing documentation to the church authorities to sign and acknowledge receipt of the summons.
According to Musiiwa, the hearing for his case is scheduled for today.
