Pay civil servants now! -Kamlepo

Rumphi East MP Kamlepo Kalua (People’s Party-PP)took government to task in parliament on on Tuesday June 30, 2015 to speed up the process to pay civil servants their June salary.

Kalua: Pay civil servants

Kalua: Pay civil servants

The civil servants expect to receive their salaries by the 27 day of every month, but mostly they are paid late.

Treasury said this month’s delay was due to end of financial year processes such as closing of financial books and preparations for the 2015/16 financial year. Government’s financial year ends on June 30.

But Kalua in parliament asked government to ensure the civil servants are priotised in their payment of salaries.

Said Kalua: “Last year’s budget ends on June 30 and our understanding is that the salaries we are talking about here were supposed to come from that budget, but now we are faced with a situation whereby, from Wednesday, July 1, the new budget becomes operational and if the minister draws last month’s payments from the 2015/16 budget he will contravene the laws according to the Public Finance Management Act.”

He asked Finance Minister to explain the reasons behind delayed salaries despite the House having duly passed the 2015/16 National Budget last week.

“How do you expect civil servants to survive without money? It is unacceptable,” Kamlepo told Nyasa Times later in an interview.

“Money should be put in good use to pay civil servants not spending in mapwevupwevu (banquents at State House),” he added.

Minister of Finance and Economic Planning, Goodall Gondwe assured the House that civil servants   affected by delayed payments to their accounts would be paid by the end of the week.

  4. Kamulepo is speaking senses and he is fighting for all civil servants, so why are you tumbukalizing the issue?

  8. kamlepo says:

    Kamlepo Kalua should not politise any issue in parliament. He should gauge his ideas before he criticises govt on flimsy issues. Civil servants are not worried that they are not paid up to now. Others are eating their allowances whilst some are cashing on the predicament to cross borders in search of merchandise to sale. So delayed salaries is not an issue for civil servants.

  9. Please people talk the truth and avoid putting hate comments in your very front. JB’s time we saw civil servants especially lower level having their salaries being increased to 60% with an aim of closing the gap between the middle and lower levels. If you are not working please avoid commenting on issues you are not sure of.

    kamulepo do not fool us
    PP did not increase our peck when it was in power. Your friend Bill muyaya and other so called ngos are busy discouraging government to increase perks for civil servants because this will blot the budget yet it is the same civil servants who contribute also significantly to the economy for instance providing the health service so that the so called sectors behind the growth of the economy can go to work,learners can perform in class and yet you want them to receive peanuts. Just imagine the same productive civil service continue to get an allowance of k15,000 and below which Late Bingo had introduced long time ago when hotels were offering 12,000 good accommodation which is now above 60,000 and yet the same 15,000 remains. Directors in the ministries are just a laughing stalk now as they cannot make any decisions on anything bola adakwezedwa iwowo. Chomwe akutha mkumangoika alamu ndi achemwali ndi mtundu wao ntchito yomwe saidziwa mkomwr shame.why can you speak on this instead of wasting our time. Who doesn’t know that when parliament is sitting all its money go towards your allowance as you take a lot of time debating on increasing CDF so that you continue to buy more confirns which you had promised your voters.

    I feel bad to have voted for DPP, now my family is affected as my pay is delayed. How can they close books without paying employees their last pay for the financial year? Zinazi muziuza ana a school osati anthu oganiza. The june pay is in the same budget you are liquidating ndiye excuse imeneyi ikanamveka salary ikana perekedwa before 15 june kuti mwapereka nsanga poti muchita close ma buku mwezi uno. Everyone knows well kuti ndalama zapita kuma independence celebrations plus ma trip atatu anayenda abwana mwezi uno. Bola kungochita declare kuti muli bankrupt basi ndipo ndalama zikuthera ku state house mapwando ndi maulendo.

  49. Kadakwiza says:

    Malawians kumbwambwana too much. That is why Bingu was calling us chickens. Even if the government can delay the civil servants salaries nothing will happen. They will just cry like babies. They can’t do anything. These called civil servants are the one who supported Peter Muthalika. Now they are crying. Cry hard may be your president will hear you. But as far as I know, the president is still sleeping.

    1. Ambwana says:

      Very true. Civil servants, especially those from my home region (the southern region) were among the most vocal supporters of DPP in the runup to the 2014 general elections. As they say “be careful what you wish for…”

      One good thing about the DPP is that they are an equal opportunity tormentor. They don’t care whether you voted for them or against them – they’ll screw you all the same!

    Mr kakha MPs are more than labour activists because labour activists have boundaries while MPs are in check of every corner of governance making sure that everything runs smoothly I do wonder why did you come on this platform because you are such a dunderhead and unlearned.

  52. Chiyanjano says:

    How do you think we will survive in this situation? The Landlords are also waiting for their money and they cant wait for us otherwise we will chased in their houses. Kapena tikagona ku state house Salaries is a priority here, pay us as soon as possible otherwise no work

  53. Tsikulokufanyani says:

    The Government has gone bankrupt. Abiti Mtila Oyeeeeeeeeee!!!!!!!!!! We are missing you. This government likes mapwevupwevu so that they are always drunk. I think am missing Joyce Banda. Her vision is better than mapuyayu.

  54. OBSERVER says:

    THIS IS DEMOTIVATING THE CIVIL SERVANTS. HOW DO YOU EXPECT THEM TO PERFORM? CSTU THIS IS HAPPENING UNDER YOUR WATCH – SHAME! OUT THERE THINGS ARE IN TATTERS. (LET PEOPLE OF GOODALL GONDWE RETIRE FOR GOOD) YOU ARE MESSING THINGS, NO DECERNMENT!!!

  55. Ngweso says:

    I thought the June salaries are in the 2014/2015 budget? What did these robbers do with that money? This has never happened before as some so called spokesperson for Finance ministry is putting it,u are such an idiot! How do u expect the civil service to reform when u are doing a disservice to them? Shame! U have lost the plot guys,see u in 2019,we can’t make a mistake of ushering a government that doesn’t care for its pple,mwataya chipangano,instead of being our servants u have become our tormentors! Burn in hell!!!

  56. KANJUCHI says:

    No Bonus
    No Aditional Work
    Stop Now

  57. Mr Kamlepo is the only MP who has the welfare of civil servants. Therest are just contented witheir allowances. DPP is fond of introducing strange policies. Expect learners to stone ur vehicles coz we will abandone classes. We can’t continue on an empty stomach.

    As for me, today June 30th is my last day to come to work. I have worked the whole June and have done my part so where is my salary? I will not step my foot again at office month of July unless I get paid my salary. shupiti

  61. John says:

    Goodal Gondwe should learn to say the truth. What do you mean when you say delays are due to closure of financial statements? Why did you not plan in advance? When did you know that transition from one financial year to the other would disturb salary payment and why did you not prepare for that?

    Please also note that pay day in Civil Service is 21st of every month and NOT 27th. So we are already 10 days into another month!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  62. mtengo wagwa says:

    Thumbs up to MP Kalua. You deserve to be Finance Minister. You put civil servant lives at heart. How do you think that a person who receives K40,000.00 monthly can survive from last pay on 27 May up to date? People will start stealing in govt stores like PTC etc. Shame to DPP Govt.

  63. Kakha Erutu says:

    Mr Kamlepo is behaving like a labor activist. I wonder if he really understands his role in parliament.
