GAMBIA: IS THIS FAIR?

In November 2023, the cabinet had a meeting and approved the increment of transport and residential allowances for Civil Servants. No one gave them Ebbeh or Nan Mburu to increase the allowances.

– In a letter to the Ministry of Finance, the Personnel Management Office wrote that President Adama Barrow and his minister have considered and approved the increment of Transport Allowance from D1,500 to D2,500 and Residential Allowance from D1,700 to D3,000.

– But in January 2024, the same President Adama Barrow and his ministers decided to wakh-wakhet, canceling the allowance increment.

– At the Judiciary, a memo from the judicial secretary today landed on the desk of the financial controller, ordering him to stop the additional D1000 increased to the House to Office (transport) allowance.

– The judicial secretary also ordered the financial controller to recover the four months earlier paid to their staff.

– Some of the staff at the Judiciary are very angry right now. They disclosed to What’s On-Gambia: “Our financial controller wants us to return the D4000 that was paid to us from January to April 2024. We did not ask for the increment. It was the cabinet that decided it and later canceled it. Why should we return the money?”

OUR ADVICE: Don’t return a single butut. Protest and stop accepting every nonsense thrown at you by the government.
