The Public Service Commission is reportedly planning to install solar power facilities to all civil servants’ households. This was revealed by Public Service Commission Deputy Chairperson, Dr Mary Margaret Muchada who said that the project was part of the non-monetary incentives the government was intending to roll out for workers.
The announcement was made amidst reports of government plans to establish a Funded Defined Benefit Pension Scheme which will see the contributed funds being invested on the money market and other viable asset clusters are at an advanced stage. Muchada said:
Meantime, the Public Service Commission is vigorously pursuing a project on the installation of cost-effective solar power facilities to all civil servants’ household among other incentives.
ZBC News reports that the government also plans to introduce housing schemes, medical care and funeral assurance facilities for workers.
The development comes at a time when living standards in the country have deteriorated for the general populace due to the high cost of living as inflation has been rising over the past twenty-four months.
