He advised the private sector in the district to consult his office on issues concerning wages and salaries.



Mr. Kanjuye said this in an interview in Kafue District today.



This was when he facilitated payments for about 70 Kafue residents who did the back filing of a 4km stretch of a cable trench contracted by the Cable Network Solution.




He advised the employees and employers to sign agreements and observe the minimum wage.




He added that there was communication breakdown between the management of Cable Network Solutions in Lusaka and the supervisor in Kafue that led to disagreements on the payments .



Mr Kanjuye further said the workers mostly women stormed his officer to register their grievances which has since been attended to.
