What about pensioners?

January 11, 2018 at 7:46 pm

The government has allocated a salary increase to public servants. It may be hoped with sympathy that the plight of poor pensioners may also be considered in the same vein, as the cost of living has affected them severely, especially for doctor’s fees, medical investigations, drugs &equipment. It may be pertinent to mention that the public officers of yesteryear did not enjoy many of the perks and privileges enjoyed by the present day public officers. Just to name a few are holiday-pay, overtime-pay and numerous allowances. Giving an increase of pension is a huge meritorious act. Over to you, Hon. President & Prime Minister
