Malawi President, VP suspend salary hike: MP’s get 367% pay rise

Malawian President Peter Mutharika and vice president Saulos Chilima have said they will not be taking the percent  salary increase “until economic situation improves”, Finance Minister and government chief secretary have confirmed to Nyasa Times.

Information Minister Kondwani Nankhumwa said the new salaries,  were “in line with the budget” which was passed by parliament last September.

Mutharika, who came to power after defeating Joyce Banda in May elections,  has since said he will continue getting the  K1.5 million a month and not the approved K2.7 million (  $5,263 ) a month.

Chilima will also be going home with  K1 million and not the revised K1.8 million kwachas.

Government chief secretary George Mkondiwa confirmed with Nyasa Times in a telephone interview on Saturday evening, saying the Head of State and his deputy have “suspended” their new salaries, saying they will prioritise the improvement of living standards of civil servants and Malawians in general.

“We are harmonising our salaries  [in the civil service] .The President His Excellency Prof Arthur Peter Mutharika and vice president Chilima  have decided  to suspend receipt of those salaries because of the  [ailing] economy,” said Mkondiwa.

“They will continue receiving their old salary,” the government chief secretary said.

“It’s a voluntary arrangement [by the presidency],” said Mkondiwa.

Mkondiwa sais while the proposed salary increase for the Head of State may be justified, “the President has decided to forgo the increase this time.”

Finance and Economic Development Minister Goodall Gondwe also told Nyasa Times in a telephone interview on Saturday that “indeed I can confirm that the President and the Vice President will not be receiving the new salary.”

Gondwe said the presidency has deferred their new pay package amid austerity measures following foreign aid flight.

The salary hike send shock waves to Malawians as the country is facing economic turmoil.

Meanwhile, ministers and lawmakers will get a huge pay rise.

The pay cheques of the country’s 20 ministers  and Leader of Opposition (Dr Lazarous Chakwera of MCP) have jumped to  K1 608 million ($3,000) from  K600 000 per month  ($1,150) representing a rise of 168 percent, plus benefits including fuel allowances of 1 000 litres per month and K350 000 as housing allowance.

Deputy Minister’s salaries have been raised to K800 000 from K428 000, representing 87 percent with fuel coupon of 1 000 litres and will be paid K250 000 if they are not living in a government house per month.

The 193 lawmakers who make up the Malawi parliament will be getting K600 000 ($1,150) per month from K126 000, representing 376 percent. They will also 1 000 litres per month in fuel allowance and K350 000 as housing allowance.

According to acting Clerk of Parliament Roosevelt Gondwe, the new salary structure for MPs was implemented from October 1, 2014.

  8. Matako says:

    APM is trying to fool Malawians by making them believe that he has suspended his pay hike. In fact this thief has not done so as he will be collecting even more through dubious allowances together with his VP. These people are corrupt greedy thieves they should not be allowed to get away with it. civil servants should shut down government all together until they get similar raises. This is very irresponsible and very insensitive to Malawian people who are suffering due to inept policies of this administration. How can you cry claiming the government is broke and you turn around and do the opposite? If this raise was not approved by parliament then it should be condemned by all parliamentarians. Allowing APM to increase salaries without consulting parliament sets a very wrong precedent. Who says he wont turn around and raid the treasury willy-nilly? this is why this country is poor because our leaders treat the treasury like their own bank account. We must stop APM now. This is not how democracy operates. He is hood winking Malawians by making us believe he is not getting a raise himself. Watch out people!!! This is the start of swindling of national resources.

    I can see people going to the streets very soon because of abuse of the economy by politicians while the economy is in bad shape. Why are you doing this Mr President? Can you learn from the mistakes other presidents made and their results thereafter? Politicians never learn and they forget so easily as to how the predecessors were not liked by the people. Let us wait and see.

  30. Okay says:

    People may say a lot but MCP and Jessie are right. How can an MP receive a little sum when the whole constituency look upon him for coffins, etc? These people were indeed lowly paid. I didn’t know that they were receiving such little monies, in fact less that my perks. That was an insult!

Ok, tiyeni tionenso post ya mnzathuyo: Is it true that if the increments have just been suspended it means they will receive them in arrears? Can the chief secretary come clearly there. Padzakhala ma arrears kapena ai? We want to make proper judgement here. Shade more light here. Pali nkhanitu apa. Otherwise we judge apm and his deputy wrongly. I am more than sober today.

  36. Bless says:

    PLEASE politician work for the people

  37. Mc says:

    Suspended? Makes no difference. The best would have been to cancel the increments because if they have been suspended, it means they have been deferred to a later date and will be implemented and paid in arrears later. Secondly, 2 out of over 200 people makes no difference. Zonsezi za anthu onse should have been rejected, otherwise this just gives a stronger case for those on strike to demand their increments and believe you me, with this, expect more to join the strikes. The message eing given is that the is ok to accommodate the hikes and so all those on strike should be given what theh are demanding. Thirdly, it is the same as having a more than 20member cabinet with those increases.

  38. Bazuka says:

    The salaries have just being suspended meaning they will be paid in arrears. Our presidents don’t need salaries as they steal huge sums of money. The salary is a symbolic thing

  39. jkkkk says:

    Would make more sense if all increments were suspended. 2 people out of 195 people declining an increase has no effect at all.
    We just need a revolution. This is a smarter way of stealing money

We believed in you, even for most of us who had completely forgotten about politics, you have us hope. We had not seen any politician like you in a long time – some even liked you to Kamuzu in his early days, before he became evil, but 5 months down the line, you have shown you are just like the rest of the rulling elites, thieves.

    Is there that kind of money in Malawi? Are there medicines in hospitals? Do villagers have food kodi? And you go and take away from poor peoples’ mouths. Pita and co, I am not surprised, if they could steal 92 billion, this is small theft for them. But for you Lazarus, all our hopes in the political rulling elites are gone, gone, gone,

    Have a good life

  43. Bullshit says:

    When I first heard that Dr Hetherwick Ntaba was going on a diplomatic mission to UK, I had loads of whys in my brain. Now I have the answer. Dr Ntaba has always been in Malawi either on governing or opposition side. He spent his political life during Muluzi, Bingu and JB. Why not during APM?

    This guy Ntaba despite being called a computer, he has been making some bad judgements regarding his political future and I once have commended the move he has made by leaving Malawi and work outside of this dirty politics. He will be earning a living without being used by politicians to answer questions on their behalf when they mess up with things. If he performs well he will be enjoy his life out of this dirty political country Malawi. If a new government comes in and decides to bring him back before his term, You all know how it works – All his monetary package will be handed to him without doing any work for that remaining period. He has made a very good decision ever. Sorting out his pension here and his name will never be on the press just like it was during the late Bingu and to make matters worse, it was him who was looking bad everytime he was out defending his boss.

    Why now? He knew how bad he was getting in the eyes of the public but he had to carry on defending as it was his job. He knows exactly who made the late Bingu become a bad President overnight and his was not ready to have that person as the immediate boss.

    Peter Munthalika is being carried away by the support he is getting from UDF. Peter needs to remember that in politics you dont have permanent friends or enemies. UDF is supporting you in daylight but you dont know what they discuss when you not there. Muluzi and his son Atupele surely do sometimes discuss APM and how to get him out earlier so that Atupele gets a second chance to become a President. Muluzi Snr will work hard to kill PP and slowly also ill advising APM in the process DPP will be weakened. The pay rise had a support from all MPS but UDF takes it as a chance to make the whole Malawi get mad at APM.

    APM is digging his on shallow grave by taking advises from Muluzi Snr and his son Atupele. These two are killing DPP. Why did APM get lid of people like Jean Kalilani yet she had the mandate through nationally recognised convention?

    The end of DPP in near. Congratulations to Dr Ntaba on your diplomatic posting to Her majesties nation.

    Malawi Malawi my mother Malawi please I plead with you please once again please ” DONT MEASURE THE ANGER OF MALAWIANS” Our anger is so big and huge and a day will come that it will explode. These salary hiking you are doing to these ministers and MPs is very very dangerous. As Malawians we are not happy try to sacrifice to avoid. Government with this ruthless IG you have he is the one who is going to dig your grave. Why am saying this is come demonstrations which are soon coming he will order shoot to kill as am made to believe that he is intolerant. Once again Government of APM and SC avoid please avoid measuring the anger of Malawians. Don’t take us for granted. Never say I never said

  49. Bodza la n'nanu says:

    Its a ploy. There was nothing like 80% increase for the president and his vice. These so called leaders of ours want us to believe that they have Malawi at heart. Raising mps salary by more than 300%, please are you buying your votes of confidence so they don’t impeach you? God for bid, your predecessors did the very same thing – Salary Cuts – but ended up looting public coffers. When will Malawi change? Can’t we for once have morals and respect ordinary Malawi citizens and accord them what they deserve – a descent living? Don’t be so canning you so called leaders of Malawi.

  50. oooooho/ says:

    too late! is the suspension becoz it has come out on the spotlight in the media?

    definitely these two knew that their salaries were increased or going to be increased from oct or whenever..why didnt they refuse then? come on!

  55. ABCDEFG says:

    If a MP receives 1,000 ltr of fuel per month – what will he do with it? A calculation:
    Assuming his vehicle takes 80 ltr into the tank, this allowance will be enough for 12.5 tank fillings. If the vehicle makes 8 km/ltr, the MP can travel 8,000 km with this fuel (in Malawi, which is about 1000 km north to south). If he travels on 22 work days per month (does he?) then he needs to do 364 km per day (which is about single distance between Lilongwe and – let’s say – Mulanje). If he travels only 150 km/day, he will need 53 days to use up that fuel. Is this realistic? Let’s compare: Truck drivers travel 364 km/day, work 20 days/month, have at least a consumption of 50 ltrs per day, and certainly need 1,000 ltr per month.
    We know ministers have trucks. Apart from compensating the MP’s travel cost it seems that the taxpayer is expected to improve the profits of the MP’s trucking business. In addition to the pay-hike, this is what really disturbs.

  57. Chamazaza says:

    This is political suicide ,immaturity or a mere lack of direction on the part of those entrusted with running our Mother Malawi, beloved country. We have many learned and exposed people in positions of power and influence (Doctors and Professors in various fields be it governance or economics) that should be well versed with basic building blocks of governance (Political Science 101). First goal should be to stimulate Production, generate equitable access to primary health care and educational systems. Empower the private sector with open, transparent and auditable systems. Embrace Political opposition to maintain focus. develop infrastucture. be honest and tell Malawians that for a few years it is going to be hard before it turns good, they will cry but at least they are in the know and they will effectively participate in government programs if everyone knows the outcome. Discourage the festering culture of “tidye nawo while we can” who are we stripping and kidding….???? its our country and we need to love it before donors do. What legacy are we leaving for our children? How long will a Toyota Fortuner last if there is no basic infrastructure( good roads), forex to bargain and get better spare part prices and fuel?If the owner is sick and cannot even get drugs for the most curable ailments? we need to think long and hard, search our souls, look at the logs in our eyes before looking out! Remember political governance is as much about leadership as it is about the participation of followers/the masses. Thats my take!! thank you!

  61. victim Chamkhuni Lwazazi says:

    The president and vice president are only cheating the people of Malawi – They have hidden mechanism through allowances and benefits which by far out-pace the salary rice – it’s just a bluff. By the way where was the president when the salary rise was being planned and being effected. He and his deputy were silent until there has been an outcry by Malawians. They are crooks.
    As for ministers and Malawi pigs (mps) they are not even remorseful about the suffering people. The president should have shown care and leadership for Malawi by not encouraging and by stopping or reduce this obscene rise for the malpracticers (ministers) and Malawi pigs (mps). Pretending to help in healing the economy by not directly getting the new salary and letting so many malpractitioners and Malawi pigs siphon the nation does not help Malawi. Is he realy in-charge of the nation, and what kind of economics is he applying.

  62. Chikutumbwe says:

    This is a crocked way of getting the money in huge sums. they call it arrears at a time they want the money. The best was to ask that the VP and The president must not be increased if they honestly wanted to do that. Mbava

  63. dadaboma says:

    DPP is a crooked syndicate. By suspending APM’s salary they want to paint a picture that they care for the people. At the same time they know they are failing to govern this country in the interest of the people, and so they decided to buy favours or corrupt the MPs so that they should feel aligned to govt even if people are suffering. Most civil servants have not been paid up to now for Nov salary. The delay in payment is falsely attributed to a technical problem but the truth is that money has been diverted to cater for the huge increases in some people’s salary. DPP should not have been given mandate to rule Malawi again. The imbeciles that voted for DPP are causing us untold misery. And yet it is most of the civil servants that voted for the animal that is now mauling them. Silly.

  64. makito says:

    I have never seen such idiotic thinking in government. They needed the public outcry to realize that the economic situation was not good? Reminiscent of phada.

  65. oooooho/ says:

    the duty station of MPs is the constituency. Where in Kameme, Chapananga,, nsanjelalanje or misuku does an MP deserve a rental house allowance of 350,000? What was the basis for this house allowance more so that MPs get subsistence allowance when they come to Lilongwe?

    1000 litres of fuel per month? is it way of siphoning? they stay in town whole month and given 1000 litres fuel? r we serios?

    and yet you pay a teacher 40,000 (FORTY) inclusive Imagine a teacher in LL city…pompo house allowance, pompo transport, pompo magetsi, pompo water, pompo food, pompo zovala, pompo fees for children yet somebody is given 350,00 just for housing in namwela, fatima and more than 1000litres (>800000) for fuel! Very sickening and irritating!

    ITS CLEAR THAT TOP MANAGEMENT TAKES MWIANS FOR GRANTED…. THAT NO MATTER, THEY WILL DO NOTHING ABT IT….SHAME ON US THAT allow this to happen…..

  66. wangalusa says:

    My comment may not be relevant. It is directed to MERA: Mutsitsa liti mafuta. Even if the Kwacha has depreciated, the drop of fuel price on global market is so significant to warrant a reduction in fuel prices hear in Malawi. MERA is not honest. It is bent on punishing motorists for reasons well known to themselves. Just because you don’t put fuel in the vehicle you use with your own money, then all is well. You will appreciate my thinking one day when you’ll take all the responsibility of your vehicle. Don’t advise me to dispose off my car, am asking you who decide on the prices to be considerate, be fair enough when making your decisions. Good luck!

  76. Observer says:

    “This is in line with the approved Budget” and yet the Budget has no adequate money because of lack of Donor funding, we are told. Well, with kind of spending there is no need for Donor funding they can as well keep their money this government has adequate money of its own to splash on MPs and Ministers.

    They announce the President has a salary increase and then announce again he declined the increase, what cheap propaganda people are really being taken for fools! You mean he was not consulted before the announcement was made in the first place, and Chilima is party to this shallow propaganda, or is he helpless? Poor Malawi!

  77. Tau says:

    Mind the word “Suspended”. Which means they have not forgone the increase. They just got caught in a bad situation, in a few months they will still get their increases backdated to October 1st. Don’t get fooled by the PR stunt.

  78. Nyauhango says:

    This is cheap politics. What does “suspended” or “deferred” mean? You are deliberately using ambiguous words to fool people but we know what this means. There is no difference here, these two have simply converted their salaries into a savings account which they will get in full, so stop trying to fool us, we are not stupid you know. Enjoy your increment while the rest of us languish.

  81. Chikadzakowani says:

    I am seeing a pattern now. APM is much more concerned about buying out all critical voices, while at the same time appearing as a caring leader. The actual state of the country is not of any concern to him – everything hinges on how he is perceived by the public.

    His strategy involves making sure that CSO leaders, journalists and opposition politicians criticise him as little as possible, or better still, they turn around and start praising him. He has packed para-statal boards with CSO leaders, tried to bribe journalists with MWK150,000 each, and now he is buying off MPs with this crazy salary increment.

    We buy everything for him and his vice – and this is for life for both of them, so the ‘suspension’ of the increment for these two was planned in advance. The main target was the MPs – they got the highest increment and APM feels that they now owe him and will tone down any criticism. Indeed as of now neither MCP or PP has come out to denounce these obscene and unrealistic increments for MPs and and cabinet ministers.

    What APM does not know is that his strategy is short sighted: His focus should have been on improving the lives of all Malawians. Focusing on people who already have a voice is counter-productive. The mantra that there is no money in govt will be meaningless now that MPs are able to get such a hefty increase…

  86. Look here. The moment fuel prices go up, these idiots will be getting more. It is like pegging you salary to a dollar. This is utter theft and the situation for the poor remains the same. These people are foolong us and this is where a massive revolution is needed. We should not tolerate such nonsense when the majority of us are living in abject poverty. Peter Muthalika has proven to be a very useless person. The judiciary strike has today entered its fourth week and there is no light at the end of the tunnel. There are so many people seeking justice out there. The two ie Peter and Saulos enjoy so many benefits that the salary is just a drop in the ocean. They have security and free food until for their life time. We should not be fooled here.

President wonyasa nkhope ndi mtima womwe….Malawians, we fought the other Muntharika why not his brother? I know he will also die of cardiac arrest soon, but why is everybody quite. Where is Lucius Banda with : Kodi ndi angati akukondwa……nayenso amuthira mchere ndi kumpatsa sikono wangoti ziiii…

  90. Nyani wa ku Mwananyani says:

    There you go: APM and the Vice President showing personal concern for our economy. And taking leadership to the “nth” degree.
    Now it is up to the Leader of Opposition, Rev Chakwera, (I call him “Rev.” respectfully; no derision here) and the other politicians to show their moral mettle. Especially, for the man of God: this is an opportune time for him to demonstrate his concern for the dire straights our economy is in. And the despicable economic inequities therein.
    Rev. Chakwera: the time for rhetoric is long past! Small gestures do count, even in politics.

  91. Alufeyo says:

    This is sad. Why not get the new salaries as they are legit. Surely MK2.7 million and MK1.8 million are peanuts. I believe it is a sign of weakness to bulk under pressure from the public when what you have done is rational and legitimate. As a nation we would rather these two people steal or get kickbacks from business people than be paid transparently. We must start paying our leaders properly if we believe they do a good job. However if MPs and the president are useless and a drain on our treasury then lets abolish the offices. When did these two realise that the economy was bad when the salaries were raised in October? This to me is fraud of the highest order.

  92. Angozo says:

    Some people of long mouths started insulting the president, look now he has suspended his salary hike. Say something now on suspension of his salary and that of his deputy.

  93. Dumisani says:

    This country just requires afew patriotic people including MPs who shall put the national interest first. Just imagine all those “wise like” MPs who have gone to parliament, non of them rejected such increment just for the sake of the nation. They make noise as if they have brought a change to Malawian Politics… as if they are holy and love this nation yet when some money is unnecessarily being added to their account they never speak. More especially MCP, you are hypocrites, all that noise why didn’t you deny those increments if you really love us. Mxiewwww!!!

  94. Kadakwiza says:

    I critised Mr Peter Muthalika, and I even called him a useless President after I read the last article which was “Muthalika get 80% salary hike” I was realy shocked. Today the president has rejected the salary increase. Its good news to hear that. We need such leaders in Malawi. Malawians let us give credit to our president and critise reasonably. Keep it up Mr Muthalika Malawi need you. I wish Mr Chakwera to do the same. Long live Malawi

  95. kaya says:

    lose trust in the opposition bcoz I feel these are now issues that they should make noise against. Why do you lookdown on civil servant? Why do you take them for granted? We are living in the same economic turmuel but why are civil servants given that meagre pay hike which doesnt even make any dividence with the risen cost of living.PLIZ LORD DELIVER YOUR PEOPLE FROM THIS EVIL!

  96. Those in opposition must suspend the pay hike aswell if they really love Malawi.Koma ngati munapitirako ndalama nde mugwanayo because we all know that a friend in need is a friend indeed.Bravo Peter and my dear ngoni,Saulos!!!!!!!

  97. So house allowance ya mp mmodzi ndi salary ya ma degree holder angapo? Kkkk..bola ibweredi ebola ikusakazeni nonse opondereza. Ambuye akukhululukireni

  99. Manolo says:

    This is so pathetic. Why was there a discussion to raise your salaries anyway. Blunder after blunder, everyday! If you thought people will be impressed with your antics then you must be really stupid

  100. Mwiza says:

    I feel that the President should receive more. Don’t be pleased seeing that they’re receiving a small salary as they may instead be cashgating. If Chief. Secretary is at K1.7m, how much should a President earn? The Judiciary wants K2,5m for Chief Justice. There’s no issue here. The most noisy are usually the less transparent,

    You so called learned people, how long are you to fool the nation? You told us you’d reduced the size of Cabinet to 20 and on the other side of the balance you increase the man-salary by 38.35 people, what type of strong measures are being used here to reduce the overspending? The two Presidents, him and the vice have not declined the salary hike but shamefully just put it on hold most probably orally. Is this inflation affecting only the few elected (by design) MPs/Presidents? The Gvt is squieezing the inocent citizen on unfair taxes just feed these unfaithful honourables leaving the citizen gnashing his teeth, what a shame of thinking! Budgeted or not Budgeted, the thinking here is shallow. You must first of all consider the plight of poverty the masses suffer before thinking of yourselves. You S-H-A-M-E-L-E-S-S animals, pity on you!!

  105. m'bantu says:

    Does it make economic sense to suspend the prezdnt’s and his vice’s new salary but implement more than 100% pay hike for 20 minstrs and 192 mps? amakhoti, acb,unima etc, more fire,ndalama ali nazo anthuwa.

  106. Diamond Platinumz says:

    George Mkondiwa,

    This is a childish trick,you had put the salary hikes for the President and the VP on public domain deliberately so that when citizens of Malawi cried foul then you would come in and tell the nation that the President and the VP had decided to put their hikes on hold because our economy is not in good shape. Please,George and your crew,do not take us as fools. What you wanted to do was to create a scenario where people would be very angry with the decision of the Government and then turn around to show the nation that regardless of the problems Malawi is facing,at least,we have a listening President and the VP who have the Malawi Nation at heart and would do everything for the betterment of Malawi.
    We have heads that function very well,we can not be fooled by your silly thinking. When salaries and all the benefits for the President,VP and even ministers and mps are being formulated,the president knows everything that is happening and is at liberty to stop the hikes and give the nation the very reasons that George is telling us. Nthawi zina kumaganiza modzama kwambiri mukafuna kupusitsa anthu.Now,you want the people of Malawi to turn to the mps, the likes of Dr Chakwera,the ministers and start shouting at them saying,why did the opposition not do anything while you know very well that they can’t do anything at this point in time. The president needs to have very good advisers for him to perform well,of course,he is very old hence he can’t argue very well on such crucial matters though he is a Professor but somebody within the advisers must be able to pick whatever is wrong in these silly decisions.You are sitting on a time bomb!

  112. Bwitoto says:

    So the presidency has applied what we call PLANNED LEAK so as to gain a stupid political milage. And by the way how sure are we that these salaries are going to be suspended as reported? This regime is so desperate for money as evidenced by the NACGATE. Opanda ndi manyazi omwe kumaba dzuwa liri phweeee. Kodi a Chilimawa kumeneko kunenepa kapena kutupa? Kumanenatu osamabisa

  113. woograaahaa says:

    I feel Mps dont deserve a house allowance because it is believed that they are coming from their houses unless am advised to the contrary.
    A house allowance is fit for a person who has no accomodation thats why sitting allowance is justifiable.

  114. woyenda says:

    Yes palibe zachilendo apa olemela azingolemela osauka ndikumasauka basi

  115. So as government, how are you going to convince those already on strike due to salary increase ? You would have been the last team to announce your increament after clearing salary increase of civil servants and on going junior court staff strike. Pa christmas timagulira kaye ana malaya kenaka kenaka ifeyo

  116. Unenesko pera says:

    Malawi is in Hell. Jesus just come, for we have no future of staying on earth. Everything is bad now.

  118. why is it that LAZARUS CHAKWERA getting more than APM & VP SAULOS CHILIMA on top 5 DRUMS OF FUEL per month ? what about economic hardship on the country is facing? are these figures real? we want to see the president getting more than the opposition leader please.

    They want to bluff little minds to believe that by rejecting the salary increments the president and VP have the welfare of poor Malawians at heart. This was a calculated move. And the MPs, do they really deserve such recognition . Malawi ndi tudzi teniteni. My foot! That’s I for one never and will never ever blame the whites for the calamities Africa perpetually sails through . We are architects of our own sufferings. We grossly lack vision and focus.

When it comes to money,there is no opposition. They,undeservedly,get a 374% pay hike when a teacher gets peanuts. So,this was passed by our legislature where the majority are opposition members. I wish Helen Singh had won just as an MP. She would have fought for the poor. But for these,mwandiopsa. Moti a Kabwila,Uladi Mussa,Njovuyalema,Lunguzi,Msowoya,Felix Jumbe,Bisnowatty,Wakuda Kamanga,Khumbo Kachali,Kamlepo Kaluwa, zinadutsa izi mukuona!! Anthu adyera inu!!!!

  127. Gerald says:

    An MP that doubles as a Minister will be cutting home a MK 4million a month. S/he will have 2000litres of fuel included in the monthly salary. When the pay is compared to the work they do, I am of the opinion that it does not make sense.

House allowance yokha ya mp mmodzi ndi malipiro a aphunzitsi 15. The presidency pay hike has not been suspended as evidenced by the pay hike of Ministers and the MPs which has been effected.
    Am smelling more strikes ahead, demanding 367% salary inrease by Civil Servants, Judiciary and statutory corporations. Tiye naoni! ayisova! Alhomwe have a separate pay roll thats why they are supporting this stupid, nosense govt which cannot assess the economic implication of raising salary of MPs and Ministers by 367(400%).

    its time these mps fought for a proper healthcare system and proper developments in their various constituencies than buying some cheap coffins for villagers.Dont raise them a penny.we should all feel the pinch of this high cost living.We all go into the same shops.

    What is this madness…so within the government structures, some do get monumental pay hike while others cant even get paid in time..this is mind blowing.

    And are these pay hikes properly researched and in line with budget structure. While the economy is languishing, where are we getting extra money to meet these increments. In one breath we are being told that donors are still withholding the budgetary support and in another, we can still squeeze out some increments from the remaining percentage of the budget.

    If we are not careful Malawi will be sliding down even further into the economic abyss, 50 years after independence.
    Nobody seems to have a clue.

      Mau mau mau.True true true.Mbuzi zimenezi zimatiyesa zimayesa sititokota.And by the way i dont understand this madness;who approved the new salaries?If the presidency was a reasoning one ,with a heart for its people why did it not decline it all along in the planning stages,?Musatipusitse wawa ife anthu akumudzi.

    Has suspended the pay hike “because of the ailing economy?” Mukunamiza anaa? This country is sick and rotten – “the sickman of Africa” just as Turkey was once the “sickman of Europe”!

    On the other hand, this does not make sensible sense now! Are you now saying Ministers and the Leader of Opp will be getting a hugher salary than the president? In as far as I know Malawi (and Malawians), junior sangalandire salary more than bwana! Mukunama, all this is now more rotten than ever….
