Primary School Teacher Receives Outstanding Salaries after Ombudsman Commission’s Intervention

A Primary School Teacher in the National Capital District finally received his long outstanding salaries of K7,045.33  for the period 21 April 2021 to 2 June 2021 after Ombudsman Commission’s intervention.

The Ombudsman Commission received a complaint from a primary school teacher in 2022 regarding non-payment of his outstanding salaries from pay No. 8 of 2021 to pay 12 of 2021.

The Primary School teacher was teaching in Central Province for almost 11 years since 2010 and moved to the National Capital District due to situations beyond his control.

In March 2021, after the Covid 19 lockdown, the teacher was offered a teaching position in the National Capital District and resumed teaching on 23 April 2021.

However, the Teacher was not on the Payroll until Pay No. 13 of 30 June 2021. The Teacher enquired with the concerned Department to settle his outstanding salaries from Pay No. 8 to 12 of 2021 but received no assistance so he came to the Ombudsman Commission and registered a complaint with the Commission for it to investigate the matter of non-payment.

Through the Commission’s intervention, the relevant Department processed the outstanding salaries of K7, 045.33 on Pay No. 18, dated 9 September 2022 which was paid to the Teacher through his Bank Account.
