SEVENTY-ONE former workers at Zambia’s National Assembly have sued the institution demanding payment of their early retirement benefits that arose from a restructuring triggered by the Bretton Woods institutions’ Structural Adjustment Programmes.

The former employees represented by Alexis Chibombe stated in papers filed in the Lusaka High Court that they retired between 1992 and 1994 following the International Monetary Fund and World Bank-inspired Structural Adjustment Programmes (SAP).

The plaintiffs indicated that they opted for early retirement following the restructuring of the public service that was being done at the behest of the State.

They stated that they had not been paid their retirement benefits to-date despite contributing to the Zambia State Insurance Pension Fund at five per cent, employer’s contribution at 20 per cent and fund benefits at 10 per cent with full investments benefits, which deductions ceased at retirement between 1992 and 1994 as the case may be.

The plaintiffs are further demanding ex-gratia payments, interest and a declaratory order for specific performance of a contract between them and the National Assembly, which is represented by the Attorney General.

A number of people who were affected by the SAP-inspired restructuring of the public service during the early days of the former ruling party, MMD’s neo-liberal agenda, are daily picketing at government offices in Lusaka demanding their protracted dues.
