Nankhumwa: Warns civil servants ‘frustrating’ DPP

The government announced Christmas and New Year holiday from December 23 to January 3.

Minister of Local government Kondwani Nankhumwa, one of President Peter Mutharika’s elite inner circle told civil servants in his Mulanje Central Constituency that they would be fired if proved they were deliberately frustrating government programmes so that it fails.

He said he had information that some civil servants were frustrating President Mutharika administration’s programmes.

In the northern region, minister of Information Jappie Mhango asked security officers at Mzimba Admarc depot to treat clients humanely.

He said he received information that the security officers were manhandling women and children who were there to buy maize, saying the government would act if the situation did not improve.

However, management of Admarc said these were isolated cases caused by congestion at the depot.

    Nankumwa should tame his tongue. Civil servants in Malawi are employees under specified conditions of service and laid down disciplinary measures are supposed to be followed for any misconduct. It is therefore carelessness of the highest for a minister like you to think that the only immediate available treatment for misconduct is firing. Wakulira kuti kodi iwe? Ukuchititsa manyazi kwambiri.

    Mr nankhumwa don’t talk too much just wait 2019 is not far

  3. Truly Truly Truly, I Persnally Testify Of Directors At Ministry Of Labour Headquarters And Previous Occupiers Of Government Institutions Which Have Been Turned Into Community Technical Colleges, Are Sabotaging Government Efforts. If Minister Of Labour Will Not Make An Overhaul At The Headquarters And Evaluate Stakeholders Role, He Is Bound To Flop. Make An Investigative Journalism Survey And See For Yourself.

    Infact it is the DPP govt which is frustrating civil servants. We blindly put you in power but we will let you fall very soon. I still dont have my salary for december.

  6. Dr Haswel P. Bandawe says:

    It is expected that civil servants are professionals serving whichever Government is in power. I take it that there are job descriptions for each job and job requirements/qualifications/competences. There are programmes to be implemented and their time-line.

    In which case, supervisors from the Head of the Civil Service down, monitor and evaluate the implementation of set programmes. In a system like this there is no room for politicising civil service job. If there are non performers they have to be dealt with according to the conditions of service. There is no need to demoralise civil servants by injecting political allegiance into job performance evaluations.

  11. The noose is closing……mwanyanya maltreating civil servants by giving them a meager salary fit for school going kids….next thing we are going to hear is civil disobedience……then you will know that you are servants of Malawian not Lhomwes….

  12. Thanduxolo says:

    Just try to fire one civil servant on frivolous or spurious disciplinary charges. Mudzamulipira ndalama zambiri komanso mudzachita manyazi. Osamadalira kuopsezana abale.

    Hard work pays but having time with families is also very important especially times like these. My minister don’t you go for a holiday and relax?

  15. chatonda says:

    The two ministers are some of the worst ministers that will drive Muntharika to his down fall. They have careless mouths and they do not see what will happen later. Politics is very temporal and they have very short political life both of them.

  16. Munyalika says:

    Nankhumwa the govt is already frustrated

    A Nankhumwa inu mwatani kunali anzanu kunja kuno odziwa kugwira ntchito pano ali kuti? Boma ili si la m’nyumba mwako iwe. This government is not your personal farm and you dont have the mandate to fire any govn. official Try to get one fired and see the concequences. Your position is a political one but the people you are talking about are technocrats who spent a considerable period of time in class when yourself was busy womanising.
