Local Government Service Commission Chairperson Ackson Sejani says the Commission has given time to Lusaka City Council workers that do not have qualification to rewrite their Grade 12.
Mr Sejani said about 53 workers were found without full Grade 12 certificates in the Audit conducted by the Commission.
He told ZNBC News in a telephone interview that if the affected staff do not rewrite as soon as possible, they will be removed from their positions.
Mr Sejani said this is being done in accordance with the law that requires that division One to three should poses the required qualifications.
And, Lusaka City Council Public Relations Manager Chola Mwamba said the council will ensure that all the 500 division four employees whose contracts have been terminated are paid soon.
Ms Mwamba however disclosed that the workers had entered into a verbal contract with the local authority that can be terminated at any time.
