PSC assures retirees
By Staff Reporter
The Public Service Commission (PSC) has assured retirees that salaries paid whilst waiting for their benefits will never be deducted from their pension benefits.
Speaking during an interactive session with civil servants in Katete yesterday, PSC Commissioner Misheck Nyambose said government was committed to paying pension.
Nyambose said the salary for retirees would be executed as stipulated in the constitution.
“Am urging the civil service in Katete district to change their work culture in 2019, as most issues that the service is facing were coming from its own human resource. The commission is aware of some of the civil servants that are already committing fraud,” said Nyambose
He said anyone who will be found risked being prosecuted losing their jobs.
And Katete District Commissioner Joseph Makukula appreciated the coming of the commission to the district.
