SALARY LISTS: HERE IS HOW GOV’T BOSSES WILL BE SHARING 5,500BN IN THE NEXT 12 MONTHS
By Mulengera Reporters
A new circular issued by the Ministry of Public Service has indicated that much as the GoU will this FY2021/2022 be spending Shs374bn more on the salaries and wage bill for the public civil servants than it did in the preceding FY2020/2021, nobody will have their salary enhanced or increased in the next 12 months largely because of the globally-felt financial constraints Covid19 has imposed on the global economy (Uganda inclusive).
The Public Service Ministry circular reveals that, this FY2021/2022 (which runs from 1st July 2021 to 30th June 2022), a total of roughly Shs5,500bn (or Shs5,476.11bn to be exact) will be expended on salaries. In comparison, this reflects an increase of Shs374bn (or 7%) given that last Financial Year Shs5,102bn was expended remunerating all people working for government for the period of 12 months both at Kampala-based Ministries and district Local Governments upcountry.
The government bosses destined to share the Shs5,500bn in the next 12 months include those working in Central government Ministries (sharing Shs3trn); district Local Governments (sharing Shs2.4trn) and Missions/Embassies abroad (sharing Shs27bn). The listing also comprises of 10,863 working under the Uganda Prisons Services; 45,123 working in the Uganda Police Force; 3,862 working in the 580 Town Councils; 30,879 working in Secondary Schools; 7,094 working in Public Universities like Makerere; 133,897 working in Primary Schools; 39,007 working as Primary Health Care givers; 23,949 working in district-based LGs; 81 Justices & Judges; 3,973 in government MDAs; 2,343 elected political leaders/LC5 bosses and their councilors and 4,651 decentralized tertiary employees.
