Why Teachers’ and Civil servants’ February 2021 Salaries May Delay

Teachers and civil servants may earn their February salaries longer than they usually do. Teachers, who are used to earning their salaries, by 20th of every month, may this time earn their salaries later in the course of February 2021.

Latest Revelations by Treasury Cabinet Secretary,  Ukur Yatani have it that the government will either postpone or delay some payments to teachers and other  civil servants due to increased demands and lower collections by the Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA).

According to Yatani’s statement to the finance committee of the national assembly, the Treasury will table a supplementary budget in Parliament that will for the first time freeze some essential government services.

The country’s rapidly deteriorating cash-flow situation has been marked by falling State revenues and worsening debt service obligations.

The Treasury has raised an alert over delays in paying civil servants salaries ahead of Christmas amid a cash crunch triggered by the corona virus economic hardships.

“As we do this (payment of other essential services) …we are suspending or postponing some of the payments for salaries because exchequer is not there. Unfortunately we have no other words to say. It is not just there,” argued the CS.

Retired government employees are not spared in the mix since they are yet to receive money, despite having received letters in late November that their dues have been wired to their banks.

Over 530,000 civil servants will be affected apart from  police, MPs,  and teachers.
