The chronicle has reported that civil servants will receive full bonuses this year. Bonuses will be pegged on gross income.

Following a meeting between the joint negotiation council and government on 14 October it was agreed that bonus payments must include allowances .

The apex council complained that inflation is too high. They feared that prices of basic commodities will skyrocket and wipe out their bonuses .
