07/21/16 11:48 AMZimbabwe to pay army, police late as cash crisis deepens - [Reuters] - Zimbabwe will pay July salaries for the army on Monday, more than a week late, but teachers will only receive their wages next month, a union official said, as the government grapples with an acute currency shortage. President Robert Mugabe's government is facing its biggest financial squeeze since it dumped its hyperinflation-hit currency in 2009 and adopted the U.S. dollar, and is struggling to secure international financing. Continued salary delays could fuel political tensions in Zimbabwe, which has been hit by drought, a drop in mineral prices and chronic cash shortages - all factors behind protests this month against 92-year-old Mugabe.
