Government has released over 5.7 million Kwacha to clear the outstanding amount owed to former civil servants.
The amount is for Civil servants who left the service through the voluntary separation program between 1998 and 2001.
Ministry of Justice Permanent Secretary Andrew Nkunika says the release of the funds will bring to a closure the long-standing issue.
Mr. Nkunika says the over 5.7 million Kwacha is in addition to the over 14 million Kwacha which was provided by government in 2020 to the former civil servants
He says government is determined to uplift the welfare of the former civil servants, hence the decision to release the outstanding amount.
Mr. Nkunika said the affected former workers are those who went as voluntary separatees under the public service reform program which was supported by the World Bank between 1998 and 2001.
He said the program was meant to reduce the large wage bill which was more than what government could attend to.
Mr. Nkunika told ZNBC News that in 2008 the three thousand five hundred and twenty-two civil servants went to court after alleging that they were under paid.
He said upon winning the case, government complied and paid the separatees through their lawyers.
