The Zambia Statistics Agency (ZAMSTATS) says it has started processing the 60 percent outstanding balances for enumerators and supervisors who took part in the 2022 Census of Population and Housing.
Interim Statistician General Mulenga Musepa said money to pay allowances for enumerators is available.
Mr Musepa however says payments will strictly be subject to the fulfillment of the contract obligations between the Agency and the field staff.
He said Lupososhi, Chiengi, Mwense, Milengi and Mwansabombwe districts have already received their 60 percent allowances.
And Mr Musepa said the agency will this Friday inform the country when Zambia’s new population will be announced.
He was speaking at a media briefing in Lusaka.
