It is always bad news whenever people are sacked. In any case,one hopes these civil servants have been paid their dues up to date,so that they plan their future without tears.

I think it's a two-way thing.

On one hand, the government may retrench in order to reduce expenditure on salaries and allowances; thereby cutting off some people who ought not to be sacked. On the other hand, some selfish individuals think of the civil service as a throne on which they must die. They are supposed to be retired but they manipulate their ages, years of service and the whole system at large just so they can stay employed.

On the first case I always sympathize with the victims but in the second the culprits must dance to the beats.
