Finance Minister Goodall Gondwe: Government is considering pulling out of National Bus Company

The government has an 11 percent stake in the private company.

The government has managed to pay all civil servants including primary school teachers ahead of Christmas day.

Some National Bus employees from Blantyre and Lilongwe confided in Nyasa Times that they received their October pay on December 14.

Workers in Lilongwe wondered why this should be the case when the company collects over K250,000 a day in gate collections for buses at Lilongwe Bus depot following a memorandum of understanding with the government that runs up to 2019.

The workers said they do not expect pay before new year, January 1, 2016.

Mulli Brothers is the majority shareholder in the company withh as 64 percent stake, millionaire Bishop Simama has 13 percent shareholding and Noel Masangwi, a Democratic Progressive Party legislator has a 12 percent shareholding in the company.

Finance minister Goodall Gondwe said he did not know about financial woes at the bus company but said the government wants to pull out of the company.

Leston Mulli, executive director of Mulli Brothers, the majority shareholder was not picking his call on Christmas Day.

    So when the employees start paying themselves through stealing, you will blame them for their money as well? Guys, this is the time to know what to do before the company shuts down. Chotsanimo zanu zonse mwansanga.

    I fel bad knowing a kille Mansangwi is a shareholder of national bus. U see in Africa/Malawi businesses are given to party royalties. Its The same people and NO one can succeed If one dos not belong to a ruling party. This is why the nation is not expanding. Its on som level years

  6. chatonda says:

    What kind of business is that government can partner with bruts like Mulli, Masangwi, and Simama? Poor planning. Let this be a lesson to the government. Be serious when joining some partnerships.

  7. Mwana Mulanje says:

    What good can come from a mafioso combination of Mulli and Masangwi, the biggest accomplices to the chief looter of our economy?

  19. padoko says:

    Which Government has managed to pay all civil servants ahead of Christmass? All employees paid by Government through CHAM remain unpaid. For the past five months we receive salaries almost at the middle of the following month. This has even prompted Standard bank to suspend giving loans to Cham employees effective this month of December because of employees failure to comply with repayment schedules. We just wonder if we are under any ministry or Government at all.
