Out of nearly 2,000 temporary staff in the Presidency of the Republic, only half received their monthly salary ranging from 16,000 FCFA to 20,000 FCFA. The transaction was suspended for lack of liquidity and was scheduled after the end of the year.
According to Le Quotidien L’Épervier Plus published on December 16, 2016, the temporary staff in the Presidency of the Republic of Cameroon are angry and made it known. “Sources close to the stewardship report that, on behalf of December 2016, many temporary agents were unable to take their monthly salary, which ranges between 16,000 FCFA and 20,000 FCFA. This despite the fact that these employees would already accumulate many months of wage arrears, “the paper said.
According to the source, it was on 9 December 2016 that some temporary agents were invited to receive their pay. Almost half of the 2000 agents went to the cash register. “But against all odds, while the payroll ceremony continued on December 14, 2016, those who were waiting on that day were informed that the payer no longer have cash. They will have to wait until the end of the year celebrations pass to take possession of their pay.
According to the newspaper, many observers wonder if the Presidency of the Republic is running out of liquidity. In view of the number (2000) of young people recruited, it was foreseeable that at some point the Presidency would be confronted with difficulties related to the salary of the latter. Many young people have already thrown in the towel. Some of them prefer to be drivers of motorcycle taxis, “rather than receiving irregular salaries from catechists.”
Others who have also gone with badges stamped Presidency of the Republic of Cameroon (PRC) indulge in scams from imprudent people. There are also some who are unfortunately involved in cases of robbery and assault.
