Dear Editors, please hide my name, as this is an important issue that the public should know about.

The PF government created the PUBLIC SERVICE MICRO-FINANCE programme, with the promise of giving out loans to civil servants at a reduced interest of 5% over an agreed period of time.

Many civil servants applied although only a few were given. The few that were given had their amounts reduced with the institution claiming lack of funds.

I was one of the people who applied for the same last year October. Sadly, I have not received the money despite my pay being deducted for the same. The deductions have been appearing on my payslip for over five months now. I have pushed and pushed the people there particularly, a Mr Chilufya, who happens to be a boss there but nothing.

It has been months of fake promises. Also note that two of my colleagues are facing the same challenge.

Can someone with a legal mind help me. Isn’t it criminal for the institution to begin to recover money for a loan which was not credited to a person?

Is this what the government meant by more money in our pockets?

What further action can i take seeing that past actions have proved futile?
