Unpaid UNZA retirees to protest naked – Video
Most people who retired from government as far back as 1991 have not been paid their benefits. But the government is currently distributing K1, 600 to whoever shows interest to vote for PF.
The Ministry of Finance has approved an application for UNZA through the Ministry of Higher Education to acquire a two hundred million kwacha loan to pay off retirees from 2011 to date, who are still on the payroll.
Higher Education Minister Brian Mushimba said that although some retirees have been paid, the loan will ensure those remaining are cleared, adding that the UNZA Management has been asked to go on the market to source for the funding.
Dr. Mushimba said that the government is committed to ensuring that the plight of all retirees is looked into as they are citizens, who have served the country.
But time has passed and no little to no action has been made and now the are planning to protest while naked.
