Malawi Civil Servants salaries to delay -Treasury

Malawi government has said it will delay to pay salaries to some of  its public workers because of a “technical problem” with the payment system at the Malawi Switch Centre (MALSWITCH).

In a statement  dated  December  2 2014 signed by secretary to the Treasury Ronald Mangani,  said the civil servants will be paid  late  for November salaries.

Mangani said the technical problem has hit the  system which is used to transmit payment data from Government to Commercial Banks through Reserve Bank of Malawi.

“Due to the technical problem at MALSWITCH which occurred on the eve of the 25th November 2014, the Accountant General Department resorted to manually and physically transferring salaries to commercial banks,” reads the statement in part.

It said the manual transferring of salaries was necessary to minimise the delays that would have arisen.

“The Government sincerely regrets this sad occurrence and assures the affected Civil Servants that every effort is being taken to ensure that they access their November 2014 salaries, latest by 8th December 2014,” the statement reads.

It adds: “Government further wishes to inform the general public that in an isolated instance, some files from Ministry of Education, Science and Technology were duplicated whilst manually amalgamating the salaries files. The issue has been noted and corrective action taken to normalise the duplicates.

“Government would like to re assure the general public and Civil Servants in particular, that the Payment System has been rectified and is now undergoing validation tests to ensure timely payment of future salaries.”

    It appears we should all be politicans inorder to survive in Malawi. I thought these politicians would be working to find solutions to improve the economy so that everyone in the country benefit. Surprisingly they do not know how to do that, they are giving themselves salary increases. What about the peasant farmer, nurse, primary school teacher? I thought they also deserve an increase in income for them to survive? How will they survive?
