Government has given civil servants a four per cent hike on salaries, transport and rural hardship allowances.

“We have 237, 000 plus civil servants in Zambia. 52% of the national budget goes to civil servants emoluments leaving 48% for production and other things,” PF deputy media director Antonio Mwanza stated.

Considering the high expenditure on civil servants’ salaries, Mwanza said it was only prudent that the Annual Performance Appraisal System (APAS) is applied across the board to ensure effective and efficient service delivery in the civil service.
