MoE delays payment of salaries to school security guards

Reports have emerged that security guards working in schools under the Farwaniya Educational Zone have not been paid their salaries for more than three months by the Ministry of Education (MoE).

The ministry blamed the delay in not getting approval from the tenders committee, which is responsible for either issuing a new contract for security guards or renewing the existing contract, which expired in July.

The internal pencil-pushing by the ministry and the Central Agency for Public Tenders has left the security guards with no financial security since August of this year.
