South African public officials are well-known for being among the most difficult groups to work with, despite the fact that they do a lot of good.
Yes, there are individuals who earn a lot of money, but there are also those who do not earn as much money but work for the same employer, which is the government, and are included in the same pool as those who do.
Public servants went on strike a few years ago, and it hasn't finished yet; nevertheless, the dispute over the compensation increase is now being negotiated between their respective unions and the government.
Minister Mmamoloko Kubayi, the newly appointed minister of human settlement, has brought good news to public personnel.
Mmamoloko Kubayi, Minister of Human Settlements, announced that public officials earning a maximum salary or wage of R22 000 will now now be eligible for government assistance in obtaining loans from banks, an increase from the previous R15000 assistance provided.
With no shadow of a doubt, this is welcome news for public employees, and many will now be able to qualify for housing, which was previously impossible for them.
