VICE President Constantino Chiwenga’s new wife, Miniyothabo Baloyi, has confessed she used to smuggle goods from South Africa and Botswana for sale locally inorder to supplement her meagre salary as a civil servant following attestation into the military.
A video shared online shows the new ‘second lady’ , a colonel in the army, detailing how she also struggled to sustain a decent livelihood on a poor salary awarded to civil servants.
Public service employees, including soldiers, police officers, teachers and nurses, have been on a prolonged fight for better pay since the scrapping of the US dollar in 2018.
They currently earn less than US$100 monthly.
