Gaborone mayor calls for increase in civil service salaries

Tuesday, 24 September, 2013 - 08:00

Gaborone Mayor Haskins Nkaigwa, has called the government to review civil servants' minimum wage, as it is no longer sustainable.

When speaking at the Gaborone full council this morning, Nkaigwa said Botswana has the most unhappiest civil servants and this has led to compromised service delivery in all government Departments.

Nkaigwa said it has been almost 5 years since civil servants received a meaningful salary increase and this has affected the their livelihoods and families.

He says because of this, Batswana have now resorted to debts, therefore the Government and Workers Unions should resume salary increment negotiations for the benefit the country.
