honestly why should he not pay civil servants their bonuses when they are the list paid in the economy. as for vehicles the MPs should use the ones purchased in 2013

Would it not be cheaper to give the Order for the Vehicles to Willowvale Motor Industries and Quest Mutare to assemble the Pick up trucks locally? This will also create local employment and other downstream benefits to the economy.

nhamo yatinayo ndeyekuti kana Gvt has lost faith in its own local industry but it would have been a noble idea to have the cars assembled locally and save us much needed foreign currency. plus i dont see the necessity of Mercs for them MPs, what for really??... and it would also be prudent that the Gvt retains the vehicles previously bought for use with incoming MPs maybe have them run two terms and be auctioned to the public and proceeds used to pruchase newer ones for the next MPs coming...

snouts in the trough as Zim burns.... It's simply disgusting. If any of the legislators had an ounce of decency and appreciation of what the average zimbo is going through they would return the vehicles. If they don't we know where their true loyalties lie.
