"They have been paying us 25%  of our salaries between January till date.

"Most of my colleagues cannot pay their children's school fees while others who cannot pay their rents have been served quit notices by their landlords. The office is gradually folding up.

"We have done everything administratively possible to solve this problem but there has been no change. We were here severally, they promised that something will be done but we have not seen any change.

"Our Commissioners were here severally buy the minister refused to grant them audience so we decided to come here in our numbers. We were here in May for about two weeks believing that they would be able to pay us the backlog in June, but they have not done that till now.

"It is left for the minister to include the commission in the cash plan so we would be paid but she refused and turned our management down", she added.

She stated that the protest would continue until their demands are met.
