THE ministries of Health and Education should ensure that all outstanding dues owed to serving and dead employees are cleared.
It is sad and frustrating for one who went on leave as far back as 2008 not to be paid leave travel of K2,500 by the Ministry of General Education. These are some of the things that demotivate hard-working teachers in schools.
In the Ministry of Health, we had workers who died four years ago, for instance, but to date their families have not been paid leave travel benefits and long-service bonus.
I am appealing to the two ministers, Chitalu Chilufya and Dennis Wanchinga, to do something in collaboration with the Ministry of Finance.
