Matambo rubbishes PSBC


The Minister of Finance and Development Planning, Kenneth Matambo on Tuesday lambasted the Public Service Bargaining Council (PSBC) saying it was responsible for delaying salary increases for civil servants.

Calling the council’s existence “a problem”, he said its activities delayed the entire pay increase process and consequently no progress had been made to date.
