GOVERN­MENT has started con­sul­ta­tions on the 2018 an­nual bonuses for civil ser­vants and is ex­pected to make an an­nounce­ment once the process is com­plete, the Sen­ate has heard.

Pub­lic Ser­vice, Labour and So­cial Wel­fare Min­is­ter Dr Sekai Nzenza said con­sul­ta­tions be­ing car­ried out in­volved all stake­hold­ers, in­clud­ing Trea­sury.

She was re­spond­ing to a ques­tion in Sen­ate dur­ing Thurs­day.’s ques­tion and an­swer ses­sion.

Mid­lands tra­di­tional leader Chief Ngungum­bane had asked Min­is­ter Nzenza to clear the air on the civil ser­vants bonuses for this year.

“At this stage, we are re­view­ing our pen­sion funds as well as re­view­ing the wage bill which also in­cludes the bonuses,” said Min­is­ter Nzenza. “Given the cur­rent eco­nomic tur­moil, we would also take that into con­sid­er­a­tion and if you can bear with me for a while, we will be able to get back to you with the cor­rect in­for­ma­tion,” the min­is­ter said.
