NHCC is up to date with salaries

The Ministry of Tourism and Arts has refuted reports suggesting that two statutory bodies under it are not up to date with salaries.
Tourism and Arts Permanent Secretary Rev. Howard Sikwela says National Heritage Conservation Commission has had their salaries paid and are up to date as opposed to the impression created by unions and published in some sections of the media.
He has however acknowledged that the only individual institution that is behind in terms of salaries is the National Museums Board.
Rev. Sikwela said statutory bodies under his Ministry that want to depend entirely on Government funding to pay workers’ wages should pull up their socks before he is left with no choice but to recommend that they are converted into departments.
The controlling officer also called on media houses to verify all information with relevant line Ministries and other relevant authorities for accuracy of stories before they publish them.
