The minister raised this concern when he took his turn at TV3s Hot Issues program where he revealed some of the stark challenges faced government and all appointees.

According to Mustapha Hamid, the situation of ministers having to stay in duty for months without salaries should be dealt with in the urgency it deserves.

“It’s not a very good phenomenon in our country that people get employed and after one year they are not taking salaries yet, and they happen to be teachers, nurses etc., so, if it’s happening to politicians, we should say that: ‘Well it’s good that it’s happening to them so that they will feel the pinch and correct the anomaly for all of us citizens’,” he said.
