Cash-strapped Nakumatt Supermarket has issued a new statement regarding the payment of staff salaries for the month of June.

The supermarket chain, which runs the highest number of outlets in East Africa, had delayed payment of the May salaries citing cash-flow problems.

Whilst 100 workers were sent on compulsory leave another 1,500 employees were left without basic pay to cover rent and bills with the supermarket “promising” to settle the wages as soon as possible.

And amidst all these salary issues, the Nakumatt management has now announced plans to pay its employees June salary arrears in three installments spread over three weeks.

In a memo addressed to its staff, Director Mr Atul Shah noted the delay in salaries was due to “financial and operational constraints.”

“The company has reviewed salary payment plans with an intention of ensuring that every employee gets a percentage of his/her salary every for a total of three weeks in a month.” read part of the memo.

That will see the new pay scale for June 2017 salaries issued in the following order:

The decision by the country’s largest supermarket chain to settle the salaries in installments comes barely days after it shut down three branches in Uganda, at Acacia Mall, Village Mall and Victoria Mall.
