NRZ workers staged peaceful protests in Zimbabwe's second largest city, Bulawayo, this weekend.

The irate workers say the weekend protests were peaceful and successful

National Railways of Zimbabwe (NRZ) workers who staged demonstrations last Saturday over their outstanding salaries say they expect the management to speedily address their concerns and pay their dues.

The High Court recently over ruled an earlier decision by police to bar the demonstrations in Bulawayo, Harare, Gweru, and Mutare, where workers say the weekend protests were peaceful and successful.

However, the NRZ’s public relations manager, Fanuel Masikati, recently told Studio 7 the parastatal’s performance depends on the country’s economy.

Masikati said the parastatal is also attempting to revamp the company and meet all its responsibilities, including the workers’ demands.

Tamurai Moyo, president of the Zimbabwe Amalgamated Railways Union, one of the NRZ unions involved in the demonstrations, said the workers expect to meet with the management soon to resolve the salary dispute.
