Give JB her benefits – PP official

Peoples Party (PP)-South African Chapter has condemned President Peter Mutharika and his government for continuing ill-treating the former president. Joyce Banda by among other things denying her monthly salaries and other benefits since she left office in 2014.

Joyce Banda:    No benefits yet

Joyce Banda: No benefits yet

Chairperson for the chapter Humphrey Mhango told Nyasa Times in an interview from his base in South Africa that  the DPP government is doing is a “violation of the constitution of the Republic of Malawi”.

Mhango has called upon Mutharika to honour the promise he made during the swearing in ceremony as President of Malawi that he will always respect and follow the laws in the Republican constitution.

When contacted to verify Mhango’s claims-that Banda is not being given her salary and benefits, Peoples Party Publicity Secretary Ken Msonda refused to comment much on the matter.

“Her salary, benefits and anything to do with the former president is handled by her office so the right person to comment is the spokesman in the office of the former head of state  Andekuche Chanthunya,” Msonda told Nyasa Times in a telephone interview before referring this reporter to Chanthunya.

In his remarks, Chanthunya confirmed to Nyasa Times that indeed Banda has not been receiving her salary.

“Since she left office, she has not been receiving her salary and benefits,” said Chanthunya.

Last year, PP leader in parliament-now acting President Uladi Mussa asked President Mutharika through a parliamentary deliberation that he should stop deliberately violating the constitution.

Later, government through itssSpokesperson who is also Information Minister Jappie Mhango issued a statement refuting PP’s claims and said Banda has been receiving all her benefits.

The government however claimed that Banda turned down some benefits for example a house as she was reported not to have fallen in love with the houses government organized for her.

At the mean time, it is not known when the PP leader is expected to return home.

“We will issue a statement when she is coming back,” said Chanthunya.

Banda left the country after losing the May 20, 2014 general elections on safety grounds.

While abroad, she has been carrying out a number of activities including attending some big global events and conferences.

She also received a couple of accolades in the process.

Meanwhile, the PP South African Chapter Chairperson has advised the DPP government to concentrate on issues that will help in transforming the country’s economy which is in sorry state.

    Very nauseating that sb Malawians never voted directly as president wanted to give as problems. Yet Muluzi, who was voted in not once but all his two terms accepted the standard offers but moved into his personal house. JB has established her own ‘Ndata’ residence at Kamuzu Academy estates that she dispossed the institution, a residential property in Nkhatabay and suspected to have built another mansion near Dudu estate in Lilongwe city,among other properties and yet she keeps turning down the houses that govt.offers her.Why not just stay at one of her properties and let her children use the government house she is offered? She thinks because the ‘dying’ Kamuzu was left at mudi state house, she should be given the same? Where will the current vice president stay? A very selfish woman in deed!

  6. Kenkkk says:

    Dpp and pp or jb are all cashgate involved. You can’t separate dpp from cashgate as some of you seem very keen to suggest. We are tired of hearing about jb allowances. She is entitled to her allowances and she doesn’t need to be in Malawi for her to be paid.

    I Am still waiting for this dpp govt to issue charges against jb alleged cashgate crimes. Please issue charges and seek extradition from wherever she resides. Why are you not charging her? Is it because you are also involved in cashgate?

  7. bishop says:

    JB must come and get her benefits…

  8. Jezbel says:

    Come here to sign for your retirement package and all other terminal benefits. Dont just seat phwii in south africa. Thes so call JB southa frica chapter will tarnish your name. Every pensioneer in Malawi makes sure that she or he has signed his or her forms. Even if it means going to capital hill over the same, its your money. Things which have to do with money are always legal in nature. With the cashgate which you masterminded, nobodycanallowtoreleasecashin absence of the owner. Unless you want to create ghost workers or another cash gate holder.Muthalika has closed all the loopholes for cashgate. Report to your ex-office for whatever belongs to you as retired public officer. Dont be stupid mama and your chapter thing.

  10. mwembwe says:

  11. ADE says:

    COME HOME AND PUT SIGNATURE ON HERE PAYROLL? WHY NOT SEND FORMS WHERE EVER SHE IS TO SIGN. GIVE HER WHAT IS DUE TO HER YOU IDIOTS.

  12. The Analyst says:

    O………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..O
    The problem is lack of political will (or whatever will) for the DPP-led govt to establish the link between JB and cashgate yet everything that is cashgate points to her.

    If such political will was there, no single tambala could have been given to this JB until she comes back home and gets tried. And if found guilty (which is very likely), governmt would already have recovered part of the money from her salary and other benefits. She would even have to pay more to govt.
    Thus, if JB were wise or intelligent (which she is not), she would just shut her mouth up; otherwise she shall realise that instead of receiving money from govt, she is the one paying the govt.
    ………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………
    It’s just quite intriguing to note that when Jesus asked the people to stone that udulterous woman if they themselves had never sinned before; they were all convicted by their own conscience and disappeared one after another and left the woman alone.

    I wish APM and his govt were clean hence not convicted by their own conscience. Otherwise JB would have forthwith stopped this nonsense of give me, give me!; because she is the one to pay back. And more, for that matter!

    SHE DOESNT NEED BENEFITS AND SALARY ZACHANI ANABA ZIJA AZILIPIRA KALE

  15. kotokwa says:

    Ai. Ai . Jb does not need to come home in order to receive her dues. We know what you want/plan. Her account details are in your records. Isaaaaa mutonamiza mwanaaaaa?

  16. Nane Ndilembepo Apa says:

    Kodi JB wayambanso matukutuku? Akuluakulu, I get bored every time I see anything about JB. Where is Richard Banda? Is he still with her and yesterday enjoyed Valentine’s Day? Greetings to you my dear brother 1st Malawi’s gentleman. Katundu wa JB mukudyera komweko ku SA? When are you coming back?

  17. Kapito says:

    She will not come because she a thief
    How can she survive abroad for so long it’s not cheap to stay in hotels
    The bitch stole so much money from our country she does not deserve anything from this country

  18. Muzanga says:

    Joyce Banda’s benefits are ready and they await her signature. Government has no money for courier or to send anyone to South Africa for her to append her signature to her benefits. Ngati alibe ndalama l can offer an InterCape one-way ticket to Malawi for her to come and sign for her benefits. I am simply being a responsible citizen helping out my former Prezy.

  19. sikusinjasw says:

    Even Khumbo Kachali is receiving his benefits without a problem. All because he is here and can lodge a complaint or follow up on that. There may be some forms she needs to fill. She is Malawian and if she can fly to South Africa and other African nations to attend functions, am pretty sure she can afford to just say am going to Malawi for three days to sort out my benefits and such and then go back to the US. Its that simple. Tell your president to stop acting like a child. Tonse when we have issues with our former employers, we go and find out what needs to be done. You mean she cant even come and choose a house and go back. And she has enough houses anyway. Bakili isnt staying in a government house.

  20. levelheaded says:

    Who is this idiot heading the so called south African chapter?

    Have you ever been employed you dunderhead? Don’t you know the salary procedures at work.
    How can one receive a salary without physical signing of her payslip?

    This embicile in the name of former president is tarnishing the image on how we should regard women.
    Where is Emma Kaliya and her group to pluck her feathers.

  21. oyipidwa says:

    Aaaa you are very stupid guys!!! being a citizen and former president of republic of Malawi why she is refusing to come back home? Oyipa amathawa yekha since 2014 end this is 2016 mmmm i doit!!! you have storen our tax money end y need more?? do you thing we Malawians are fool? God will judge you accordingly!!

  22. kunyeziwa mussa says:

    wy she z failing 2cme back? Pple r suffering 4her stupidty & wt gvrnmnt z doing its 101% perfect.she shud cme & answering charges implicted 2her. she knws de truth dus wy she z reluctant.plz gvrnmnt don’t gv her such benefits kwa mbava munthu oipa ofuna zabwino zili zake & God shud punish u!

  23. Mr Humphrey Mhango, Do you expect Peter Muthalika to put the Joyce Bandas saraly and benefits on top of his head all the way from Malawi to where is? Bakili Muluzi, Justin Malewezi and Cassim Chilumpha they are here in Malawi they are getting their salaries and benefits without any problem, I’ve ever been a Dpp supporter in my life but on this issue we have to be fair, If Abiti Ntila want her salary and benefits then she must go back home and put her signature on the pay roll, Oipa amthawa yekha opanda omthamangitsa!
