Government has announced new pay dates for civil servants, which will see the majority of the workers receiving their December salaries on January 5 next year.
In a statement, Finance and Economic Development Minister Patrick Chinamasa said teachers and other staffers in the education sector would get paid tomorrow, while the rest of the Government workers will receive their salaries next year. “Treasury advises that the December 2015 salary payment date for the Education sector is being moved from 28th December 2015 to 29th December 2015.
“Furthermore, Treasury advises that the December 2015 salary payment date for the rest of the public service is also being moved from the 29th December 2015 to 5th January 2016,” said Minister Chinamasa. Meanwhile, Government has promised to pay civil servants their bonuses for 2015 although no date had been set for such payment. Public Service, Labour and Social Welfare Minister Prisca Mupfumira recently reassured civil servants that Government was mobilising resources to pay out the bonuses.
