The government of Angola removes almost 20,000 from its list of civil servants

16 July 2018

The recent process of registering civil servants in Angola has allowed the elimination of 19,476 people from the payroll of the civil service, the Integrated System of Financial Management of the State, the Ministry of Finance said in a statement released on Friday in Luanda.

The statement added that irregularities such as teachers whose identification documents had not been signed because they could not read or write had been detected, public figures who were already on the payroll before they were born and children under 10 years of age listed with a high professional rank.

The Ministry also reported that of the 64,722 agents and civil servants nationwide, whose salaries were frozen as of April, 41,443 have already had their salaries reactivated, “which corresponds to the processing of more than 60% of the cases.”

Reinstatement of salaries resulted from the fact that, after identification and communication with officials and administrative agents, the Ministry of Finance received justifications from ministerial departments and provincial governments.

The new register of civil servants in Angola was approved by Joint Executive Decree No. 537/15, of 4 September. (macauhub)
