Zimbabwe: Zimglass Workers Detain Bosses Again

ZIMGLASS workers staged a demonstration and held hostage the firm's top management for the second time this week, demanding to be paid outstanding salaries dating back to September this year.

On Monday, management and other office staff endured about five hours of captivity after irate worker besieged the company premises demanding their dues.

Employees pulled a similar stunt on Wednesday restricting their bosses from exiting their offices and police was called to quell the situation after management had been holed up for seven hours.

The company's acting chief executive, Gilbert Tapfuma refused to comment.

Police confirmed the incident although no arrests were made.

Zimglass which suspended production in October due to lack of funds to buy raw materials requires $15 million working capital to boost operations.
