Employees at Oodi College of Applied Arts and Technology are up in arms with their management over the delay in paying their salaries for the month of June. Ever since the Principal Bursar D. Maseko issued out a memo on June 22 informing non-teaching and teaching temporary staff that their June salaries will be delayed due to lack of funds, the morale at the institution is reported to have reached an all time low.
In the memo, Maseko informs the heads of department that there is likely to be a delay in the payment of salaries for both the non teaching and teaching staff as “there are insufficient funds in all the salary votes”.
Maseko told them that several communications have been made and follow ups and are being made to DTVET accounts department pertaining to the issue. “There is no positive response yet as they are still waiting to hear from the ministry”, Maseko states in the memo. He says the matter has since been escalated to the office of the director.
