  1. Where is PF govt priorities??? The useless PF fat cat ministers never get any delayed salaries. The people who matter most as they educate future leaders are messed around.

  2. Boss this is January and you are assuring lecturers of December salaries – really. Is this normal. December salary assurance should have been done within December itself. No timeframe – zero. Who can take this serious???? Don ndipo mwasauka under PF getting paid after next payday. Muchinje!!!!
    Disaster!!!!

  3. Pf financial mismanagement ripple effect, slowly institutions like these will find it hard to pay their workers eventually strikes will be the order of the day like in kaunda’s days. Lungu’s pay cut won’t help because already he is on wasteful money draining expeditions offsetting the little salary cut. The man is on holiday never working transferring his laziness to every government institution
