April 19 2004

Zonjubar Retirees Association called upon the Ministry of Education to pay the retirees a 20% increase in their allowances.
In an exclusive statement to Yemen Times, the Deputy Director of the Association, Bonah Saeed As-Sahely, imposed responsibility on the Ministry of Education as a result of its procrastination of the issue. Ms. As-Sahely asserted, in her statement, that the communication efforts have shown the irresponsible attitude of the concerned department and its branch offices.
The concerned department, according to Ms. As-Sahely, has not kept its promises to the retirees who spent their lives serving their country, and demand now nothing but their deserved benefits.
