Minister of Transport and Logistics Frank Tayali has since advised the former employees to see to it that they collect their well-deserved dues from the two institutions.

Tayali is elated with the gesture by the New Dawn Administration that has seen it prudent to come to the aide of the former employees and TAZARA by clearing their retirement benefits.

He said the money that has been outstanding for so many years will help the beneficiaries and their families in clearing some of the hardships and financial bottlenecks they could have been experiencing.

The Minister has further urged the beneficiaries to put to good use their money so that they are able to get the best out of it.

This is contained in a press issued monday by ministry public relations officer Ndubi Mvula.
