QUESTION OF THE DAY

The average civil servant receives less than 5000 dalasi per month as salary. The highest grade in the civil service is grade 12. They receive less than 12000 dalasis a month. The purchase of 500 dalasis worth of petrol daily amounts to 15000 dalasis a month. The lowest paid are on grade 1 with earnings of 1500 dalasis per month. This is sufficient just to buy a bag of rice and few condiments. The civil servants in the Gambia deserve medals.

They give more than their state can pay them in return. They deserve free health service, free education for their children, free bus services to go to work, free lunch for their children at school and for themselves at their work places and low cost rent and purchase housing scheme to accompany their low salaries.
