More than ten thousand persons on the government’s payroll face dismissal after an audit revealed there is insufficient or no justification for their continued existence on the payroll.

A statement signed by the Auditor General Daniel Domelovo said the Audit Service carried out a Nation-wide Payroll and Personnel Verification Audit in line with Section 16 of the Audit Service Act, 2000 (Act 584).

Analysis of the responses received from Heads of Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs), as well as Metropolitan, Municipal and District Assemblies on the payroll audit showed that there is no or insufficient justification for the continuous existence of 10 thousand 689 employees on the Payroll as at June 2018.

It has therefore given such persons up to February 11 to visit the Headquarters of the Audit Service to justify their inclusion to avoid disallowance or surcharged.

The statement said the affected persons are to come along with their Biometric Registration Form, SSNIT Biometric Card, a recent  Payslip,  Appointment Letter, recent Promotion or Upgrade Letter and all Academic Certificates. They must also bring along at least two of the National Identification Card; Voter’s ID, Passport, Driver’s License or NHIS card.

Other documents are their Approval letters for Study Leave with pay or without pay, Gazette or Affidavit for change of name, Contract Renewal Letters for Pupil Teachers or Contract employees and any other relevant documents relating to their employment.

The Auditor-General warned that heads of department, heads of management units and persons involved will be surcharged for all names that are unaccounted for.
