WASHINGTON DC —
The newly appointed International Labour Organisation (ILO) assistant director-general and regional director for Africa, Aeneas Chapinga Chuma, ended his three-day working visit to Zimbabwe on Wednesday after meetings with the Employers’ Confederation of Zimbabwe, workers’ representatives and Environment Minister Savior Kasukuwere and several others.
The visit was meant to familiarize him with the current situation in Zimbabwe.
Chuma, who is Zimbabwean, was recently in Namibia where he led an ILO delegation at the special session of the African Union Labour and Social Affairs Commission Meeting of Ministers.
Studio 7 failed to reach Chuma but EMCOZ director John Mufukare said his team was privileged to meet and discuss issues concerning Zimbabwean workers with him.
Zimbabwe Congress of Trade Unions secretary general Japhet Moyo said the workers umbrella body was happy that Chuma was able to meet with representatives from the government, labour and employers.
“We took advantage of his tour to advise him where we are in terms of our interaction with employers and the government," said Moyo.
