No Money For Ugandan Govt Employees Salary Hikes

The Local Government and Public Service Committee has said that salary increases requires over U.S.$74 million which is neither reflected in the sector's policy statement nor anywhere in the budget proposals. In 2018 the government agreed to increase salaries of its employees including academic staff, traditional public servants, judicial officials, health workers, and local government political leaders, among others.
