In a move meant to strike ghost workers off the government payroll, civil servants have been advised to register on the biometric registration exercise by Monday next week.
Failure to meet the deadline will result in the non-conformists being struck off the payroll. Public Service Commission chairperson Vincent Hungwe said:
The PSC in conjunction with its technical partner, the World Bank, is pleased to advise all its stakeholders of the progress to date of the biometric authentication project.
The bulk of the civil servants have now been registered for the biometric authentication project and we are now doing a mop-up exercise which should be completed by 30th September 2019.
We wish to advise those civil servants who have not registered on the biometric system to do so by 30 September 2019 at their district offices, failure of which they will be taken off the Salary Service Bureau payroll.
