Government puts smiles on retirees with K1.1 billion

Dear editor,
IT IS gratifying to see the commitment by Government in clearing pension arrears owed to retired men and women.
The allocation of K1.1 billion to pay retirement benefits to former public service workers under PSPF, will go a long way in alleviating the many challenges these people are going through.
It is also good to see the minister of Finance setting aside K8.1 billion or 9.3 percent of the budget to the Ministry of health.
I am optimistic that the ministry of health will clear outstanding arrears owed to workers who went on leave and have since died, in some cases.
