Judiciary workers in Malawi have ended their nearly two-month long strike which paralyzed the judicial system making the prison and police cells to overflow with crime suspects.
This is a reverse of their decision on Monday when they vowed to continue with the strike despite government threats to seal off the courts and forfeit their January salary.
Spokesperson for the judiciary Mlenga Mvula said Thursday that the judicial workers will resume work Friday.
He however declined to reveal the percentage at which they have agreed saying everything will be detailed in a press statement he is drafting to be released later.
“What I can say now is that we have reached a win-win situation with the government although it has not met our demands in full,” said Mvula.
The workers started the strike early November last year demanding the 45 percent salary increment which government only gave to the mainstream civil servants.
They recently rejected the offer of 25 percent salary increase.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
