Government yesterday said it will pay bonuses to all civil servants who have not yet received their 13th cheque from the week beginning January 5.In a statement yesterday, Public Service Commission Acting Secretary Mr Charles Matorera said the Ministry of Finance and Economic Development was facing cash flow challenges.
“The Ministry of Finance and Economic Development has advised the Public Service Commission that due to the acute cash flow constraints, Government will only be able to pay bonuses to all public servants who have not yet received theirs from the week beginning January 5, 2015,” he said. “The payment will be staggered and the commission will advise accordingly.”
Last week, Public Service Minister Prisca Mupfumira said Government was making efforts to pay all civil servants their bonuses.
