Government has paid all civil servants in a move that ends non-payment of salary arrears since November last year.


Adah Muwanga, the Acting Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Public Service told New Vision that the payment process started on March 28. It covers arrears of civil servants, who missed January and February salaries.

“Government has paid salaries for the month of March to all civil servants,” Muwanga said.

The payment comes against the background of threats to strike from various circles of civil servants, especially teachers and doctors.

However, Muwanga said that the delays were necessitated by the migration from the old payroll to the integrated personnel and payroll system, which is computerized and that it would make it easier to track the payroll personnel.
