Hakainde Hichilema

The opposition UPND has demanded that government from now on start paying civil servants on time.

UPND president Hakainde Hichilema says his party is dismayed and alarmed that it has now become a perpetual habit of government to delay payment of wages to civil servants.

Mr. Hichilema says the UPND has taken note that every month civil servants such as teachers receive their salaries way from normal time.

He says this is however exposing these civil servants to various defaults and subsequent penalties from banks and other lending institutions with whom they have signed standing orders.

In a statement made available to QTV News Mr. Hichilema laments that this in turn is putting civil servants’ creditworthiness in jeopardy with credit monitors.

Mr. Hichilema notes that this is besides putting them in rental distress in addition to making them unable to meet their food and children’s school bills.

He says his party’s concern is that while civil servants’ salaries are being made to suffer this way, government is on the other hand buying new state of the art four wheel drive SUVs.

Mr. Hichilema states that this is what actually makes the UPND think that Zambia is on autopilot.

He says Zambians must use available legal and peaceful means to reclaim it from what he has referred to as mediocre and uncaring leadership.

    • He says Zambians must use available legal and peaceful means to reclaim it from what he has referred to as mediocre and uncaring leadership.

    • Most of civil servants wish for 3 months delay so they can receive big cheques in arrears, then buy bicycles and catch up with kaloba.
      If they are not complaining, just let it be.

    • I do not understand what heki heki is saying because personnally l have not gotten my salary out side the month. What does heki heki mean on time because last dates of a month are either 30 or 31 and only once 28. And there is no single time my salary hit my bank later than these dates. Its a lie. You know l do not need govt to manage my salary. Its me and me alone. Then the lenders ask for pay slips to ascertain creditworthness of the borrower. Now what has pay day got to do with my creditworthness? Why on earth did they pick on a date lower than the last days of the month? Thats being low on thinking and planning. All the papers we sign for money recoveries we say monthends. By the way l wish to dare HH, can you tell the nation when you pay your workers? How much is the lowest salary…

  2. But you HH, you very foolish. So paying civil servants on the the 30 or 31 is late? But muli chipuba tata. Has any civil servant not gotten their money? You make yourself unpopular everyday with such opportunist. Want to make the government look bad? Sorry!!! We love our government. Efficient, very efficient. Every month we get our money on a designated day, 30 or 31. You have no issue here, try something else.

    Waloba ilyauma…. Sorry

  3. Simple. One in charge of salaries is Upnd stooge and all he does is confuse the process and salaries are delayed. Then Big Boss HH comes out and play Captain Marvel. Please retire this man in national interest.

  4. HH it helps at times to keep quet if you have nothing of real value to say.
    Running a govt is not like heading a farm of cows! To imagine all employees in Ministry of Finance are dull is an insult to them. Go there and learn why these delays occur.

  6. HH is a person who is always dreaming in reverse. He is an embarrassment than an inspirer. His mouth is just vomitting as opposed to be speaking with it.

  7. ….Difficult to see if at all there is any good in what tri.bal Hacks says or does, reason being that he is tribal.ist and so evi.l that it is all you see and smell when he opens his mouth.
    Difficult to understand this tri.bal underfive. Only his fellow trib.alists and tri.bal brothers appreciate this scoundrel, like Lazy tribal Jay Gay and Spaka.

  9. “HH WILL DIE A BITTER PERSON” says Tayali. HH can you bring back the money you stole from mismanaged privatization. This man is a Satanist, a sadist, a tribalist, anti-Zambian people, a white color thief. HH we don’t need you to speak for us civil servants, since when did you become a spokesman of the ZCTU, just shut up your stinking mouth. This government has never delayed civil servants salaries, that is just coming from your sick head. PF nafuti nafuti in 2021 and beyond.

  11. HH must understand that in a Democratic country, the only way to change government is through the ballot not what he is suggesting. He is the one delaying UPND from taking over from PF. HH thinks he is the most educated Zambian and nobody is better than him and that Zambia can only prosper under his leadership. People are born and die but society remains. HH is not the only economist UNZA has ever produced. This man can be the worst president of Zambia due to his poor judgment and misguided utterances.

  12. This man is dull. Has he ever heard of pa sate?It means end of the month.
    From what I know, civil servants get their pay end of the month indeco employees those days got oau on 21st while Bankers got their on 23rd.
    I will vote for him if he promised to pay my full salary every two weeks!!
