The Apex Council leadership confirmed the development but said they will engage the government this Wednesday on outstanding issues regarding delays in the payment of salaries.

Apex Council Chairperson, Mr Richard Gundani confirmed to the State media that their members have received their salaries but said there are still outstanding issues regarding the timeous payment of salaries, hence the engagement with the government tomorrow to have a clear picture for 2016.




“Yes we can confirm that salaries have come through as promised by government but we have issues that need attention considering that the 7.5 percent pension deduction was imposed unilaterally without consultations. we are meeting with government officials tomorrow to have a better understanding on the developments and how the challenges facing civil servants can be addressed,” he said.
