Government Employees Threaten To Quit If Salaries Continue To Delay

“Prices keep changing. When you buy something here today, tomorrow it is a different thing and if the only source of getting food delays, there is no any other sources to rely on.”

AWEIL, 10 June 2016 [Gurtong] - Government employees in Aweil State have threatened to quit their jobs if their salaries continue to delay.

The employees have gone for almost three months without pay and have lost the morale for work as several ministries have reported absenteeism within different ministries.

John Kharlo Dut is the Director of Public Services in the Ministry of Finance in Aweil State who says it is of great effect to employees as it is the only source of their livelihood.

“Prices keep changing. When you buy something here today, tomorrow it is a different thing and if the only source of getting food delays, there is no any other sources to rely on.”

Chol Deng is a junior government employee who says that going without salaries has severely affected a majority of employees who are now contemplating to quit and look for jobs in International organisations where they are assured of their salaries every month.

The Director of Public services said that various factors in the country have hindered the national government from increasing salaries for employees.

“First we need our government to work very hard to have resources for economic projects that can at least push the economy of South Sudan and Aweil State. Implementation of salaries increment which was announced by the spokesperson of the government starting from last February where the first phase should have been increased and second phase of super grade should commence have all failed. This leaves the employees with no hope for super grade staff as they have learnt from those of the first phase” he said.

Joseph Yac Deng Yac from the Ministry of Physical Infrastructure said that most people have defaulted in paying their loans as they have been unable to receive salaries.

A teacher in Aweil said that for them to offer quality service then salaries must be paid promptly.
