Mugabe’s government has struggled to pay public workers on time as it faces its biggest financial squeeze since it dumped its hyperinflation-hit currency in 2009 and adopted the United States dollar.

“Measures to avoid delays in the payment of salaries for civil servants are being developed,” Mugabe said.
