NUPEZ WELCOMES REDUCTION OF ALLOWANCES FOR CONSTITUTIONAL OFFICE BEARERS

The National Union of Private and Public Educators in Zambia (NUPPEZ) has welcomed the scrapping off and reduction of some allowances for constitutional office bearers as part of the austerity measures.
In an interview with Komboni Radio NUPPEZ General Secretary Nelson Mwale says the workers have for a long time made sacrifices adding that it is time that ministers and the Permanent Secretaries also joined in.
Mr. Mwale adds that ministers and permanent secretaries fully support the austerity measures by giving up their hefty allowances saying this will contribute towards saving public resources.
He has observed that measures aimed at enhancing prudent utilization of public resources needs to be supported by all stakeholders.
