  1. I believe pensions should be at least 75% below the monthly bread basket. As for any adjustment (regardless how small) being granted by minister of finance, dream on! He continues to enforce his own form of domestic sanctions on the local populace.

  2. NSSA is actually playing around with the minds of workers and under estimating the workers capability. Pensioners are living like paupers when NSSA can actually give billions to Banks. Its the workers money. They have already contributed this money and they must actually benefit from it. If the situation continues, then Government should allow people to stop contributing to NSSA if they do not want and make own arrangements for their pensions.This is one of the Goverment abusing the people’s money.There is no other exploitation worse than this.

    • Varipo but they have brains to analyse and understand the whole principles of Social Security, how old the NSSA fund is and for how long it is supposed to go. Infact if u do yo investigations or even to follow the press u will note that all these people u want to act uncivilised were consulted. Infact if you didnt know (you can google) NSSA Board is tripartite comprising of Government, Worker and Employee representatives. All constituencies are covered. Zvako zveabuse you can report to the Police. Usangowawata, tinoda vanhu vari progresive pamhepo.

  3. NASSA should just increase the pensions immediately and advise the ministers in due course. The bureaucratic red tape is unfortunate when pensioners are suffering!

  4. @Domingos- indeed where are the Unions? the consumer council? the Minister? At least NSSA are making an effort to the pensioners in this small though unsatisfactory way but what about the private pension and insurance companies who got the chunk of the pensioners contributions? History seems to suggest while NSSA was getting 3% from employer and 3% from employee (6%), most pension companies were gettting 7.5% from the employee and 15% from the employer (22.5%)..Is there something we are not being told ref these private insurers and pension companies…like somebody in the Ministry of Finance is pocketing a hefty backhander for making sure pensioners die of neglect or perhaps these companies also own funeral parlours who are doing a roaring business from the pensioners demise? If this were true, this is SICK. I really need someone to explain to me why a rabidly corrupt organisation can still afford to pay 40 dollars when the private companies are paying a lot less when they got the lion’s share of the pensioners flesh? The press should shine their search light on these companies…ENOUGH surely is ENOUGH!!!!

  5. Why not raise it to $200 per months and consider a health insurance for the contributors e.g a medical aid which will make the employers pay 100% of the contribution to keep contributors in good health we need a health insurance everyone has a right to good health.

  6. In the kitchen, in the bathroom, in the office, in the bedroom and in life, these household items could help ease the burdens of assisted daily living for someone who is blind or visually impaired:
