Civil Servants In Lol State Raising Concerns Over Unpaid Salaries

Civil servants in Lol State have raised concerns over their three months delayed salaries beginning from November last year.

By Agoth Abraham

AWEIL, 07 February 2017 [Gurtong]-Deng Deng Garang, one of the civil servants who resides in Aweil town says he and his colleagues have not been paid due to their failure to report to their duty stations which he says is not secure and lack accommodation.

Meanwhile, William Anyuon Kuol, the Minister of Finance and Public Service, said the government only suspended payment of salaries of those civil servants who have failed to report to Raja town which is their duty station.

"Yes, it is correct; they have not been paid November salaries, December and now January because they were given directives to come to the headquarters so that we will be able to establish the system. But those who opted to ignore are now the ones affected and the decision will not be reversed unless they report back on duty,” Anyuon explained.

“So, those who responded, we paid them, but others who have not responded, we cannot pay them, because we cannot be sure whether these are ghost names or not,” he added.

He pointed out that a one month notice period was given in January for those employees to report to Raja where they will receive their salaries.

He warned that the government may be forced to fill in their positions in case they fail to report next month.
