Civil servants yet to get September pay cheque

Some civil servants, including public officers at State House, are yet to get their September pay cheque four days into October as fingers point at government for blowing the money on United Nations General Assembly expenses in the United States.

Public workers: A calling to serve not to suffer

Sources have confided in Nyasa Times that the most affected are ministries of Health, Education, Natural Resources and Environment, some district and city councils as well as the State House.

“This is a normal occurrence every year, this time around when the president is in the US for UNGA. The government struggles to pay us,” said our source.

Secretary for Treasury Ben Botolo referred the matter to the director of Budget at Treasury Chancy Simwaka who said his ministry cleared all the money on September 26.

Accountant general could not be reached for his comment on when the civil servants will be paid .

Don’t be an idiot. The story says “some” so why are you trying to generalise? Don’t be too stupid if you are pro-government. Imbecile!

Did you read the story properly? Don’t just be defensive. I am also a civil servant I am yet to get my pay.
