Industrial Court documents show that Charles Nsaliwa has been compensated K42,060,000.00 for what the court said immediate loss.
Nsaliwa has also got K514,118,649.35 for future loss.
He also got K13,774,169.00 as severance allowance bringing the total compensation in monetary terms to K569,952,818.32.
Read the court documents in part: “According to the secondment letter, the applicant [Nsaliwa] was to draw same salaries and benefits as stipulated in his contract with the respondent [Macra].
“He treated the move by his employer as constructive dismissal and commenced these proceedings claiming compensation. The court agreed with him.”
This huge financial burden on the tax payer comes at a time the same tax payer has been forced to pay Tonse alliance lawyers in the presidential election case a staggering K7 billion.
Analysts have argued that the right procedures must be followed when firing and hiring new managers in parastatals whenever there is a regime change in the country to avoid burdening taxpayers with hefty compensations to fired employees.
