Ministry of Agriculture Pays Well.

International and national Adviser salaries were big story in the news in April 2009. One national adviser was even paid 220,000 USD/annum. All well and good, if there is value for money one would suppose.

Above document sent it from a reader: it would seem that the national advisers in the Ministry of Agriculture are paid well. Very very well if you consider that most people in this country can only dream of earning (or not) these salaries. Salaries range from 800 to 8,600 USD/month. In some cases it is in doubt if the "adviser" even has a University degree, or even any real life skills in Agriculture.

What is certain is that they are political loyalists to the Minister in question.
