From Daily News, Dar es Salaam

SOME local government leaders particularly at ward level here have complained that they have gone for months without salaries.

The complaints were raised at a workshop sponsored by Forum SYD and facilitated by Mwanza Policy Initiative with the aim of educating and empowering local leaders to know their rights and responsibilities.

The workshop was also aimed at enlightening the leaders on their responsibilities as well increase awareness on rules.

Speaking during the four-day workshop on good governance, good leadership and democratic governance, village executives said that they work in a 'very bad situation because they are not paid any salaries.'
