Cameroon’s Minister of Finance; Louis Paul Motaze, set up a system of physical counting of the state staff, since April 2018.
From that exercise, he has come up with a balance sheet which exposes ficticious civil servant accounts.
The first results of the physical counting of civil servants revealed that there were
44,000 accounts that represented civil servants that were non-existent. Some were dead, and their salaries had not been suspended, and others were just ficticious.
These 44,000 fake accounts were out of the 310,786 civil servants in Grade 1 of Public Service.
These ficticious accounts have been cleared and 30 Billion frs has been saved into the government coffers.
