Sudan’s Minister of Finance Ibrahim El Badawi issued a decision last week to form a national committee headed by Prof Abdelmuhsin Mustafa to reassess wages and salaries of state employees for the year 2020.

In late November Radio Dabanga reported that PM Hamdok emphasised that his government is working to restructure the state, both the civil service and the security apparatus.

The decision aims for comprehensive remedies for salaries and wages in the civil service. It also intends to put in place measures that can provide fair, just, and satisfactory wages for the civil servants.

The decision specified the committee’s mandate to review the current status of wages and salaries in the civil service, and to reconsider the law that regulates the private sector, as well as reconsidering the allowances and benefits in according to employment classification or grades in the civil service and private sector to highlight the difference.


Radio Dabanga’s editorial independence means that we can continue to provide factual updates about political developments to Sudanese and international actors, educate people about how to avoid outbreaks of infectious diseases, and provide a window to the world for those in all corners of Sudan. Support Radio Dabanga for as little as €2.50, the equivalent of a cup of coffee.
