Finance Minister Mthuli Ncube has announced that 2.5 percent will be deducted from every government employee to set up shops that will sell subsidised commodities to members of the army.

Ncube said the decision was reached during Tuesday's cabinet meeting after consultations with the Public Service Commission.
