41 000 ghost workers killed Off’ As Mozambique.

About 41,000 civil service workers who failed to show they were alive were struck off between 2015 and 2019, Carmelita Namashulua told a meeting at her ministry in the capital, Maputo.

Mozambique WorkersThe BBC reports that Mozambique has saved about $50m (£42m) in salaries by striking “ghost employees” off the payroll over the past four years, the civil service minister has said.

We were blunt in terms of the proof of life. Whoever failed to turn up in the proof of life would get no salary. Me, Carmelita, had to report to the workplace to say, ‘Here I am alive’ in order to enjoy the salary. The money saved would be used for more services, schools and hospital, she said.

The problem of ghost workers seems to be one which is plaguing a number of African countries with the authorities in Zimbabwe promising a number of times to audit the civil service in order to weed out ghost workers.
