Over the weekend Gondwe and other government agents were forced to clarify and justify the pay hike amid economic crisis, and President Peter Mutharika and his vice, Saulos Chilima’s decision to defer their pay rise.

PP Publicity Secretary Ken Msonda told Nyasa Times Gondwe has failed nation and the President for claiming that former president Joyce Banda was the one who proposed the salary hikes.

“We are calling for the immediate resignation of Hon Goodall Gondwe for misleading the nation that the recent DPP salary hikes for State President, his Vice President, Ministers and Members of Parliament was proposed by Dr. Joyce Banda during the Peoples Party led administration,” said Msonda.

Msonda added: “We are extremely disappointed that the man we highly respected has turned into such a liar. From these lies which Hon Goodall Gondwe is saying it is clear that he is the one misleading the State President.”

He said it was not true that Banda ever discussed salary increments for the State President, Vice President, Ministers and Members of Parliament.

His argument hinges on what Banda and her vice Khumbo Kachale made while in power by donating 30% of their salary to charity.

Msonda said  Gondwe is now challenging that government is collecting more money to pay the increased salaries then there should be pay hike to all other government institutions demanding salary adjustments; ACB, Judicially, Teachers, the University Support Staff and Students as well as the Healthy sector.

“Otherwise if government is not able to pay these people,  we call upon the immediate resignation of Hon Goodall Gondwe,” added Msonda.

According to Msonda, Gondwe must step down because under his administration Malawi economy is failing to tick.

“He is failing to find solutions to a litany of strikes currently underway at the judiciary, University of Malawi and ACB. He must resign and stop peddling lies about Joyce Banda,” he told Nyasa Times.

On Monday, Gondwe re-iterated that tough economic tides had forced Mutharika not to affect the hike saying that, after all, the hike was the former government’s master plan.

salary increaments have been effected to narrow the gap between cival servants and the other statuary bodies. Do not accuse anyone including Gondwe. Inu a pp simumaonjezera ma civil servants koma cashgate go to hell simudzalowanso mboma. The rise in civil service ranged from 80% down and the president and his vice and ministers are in that category of civil servants. Why are you only accusing innocent people. Its good that the president and his vice have freezed their hike lets see the others do the same osamangopita kwa tolankhani mkumatinamiza kuti inu ndiye zenizeni.

Izi ndiye zanyanya,do you want to me that up to now we don’t have well educated guys who can run that position? Come on my people the old pepper doesn’t sound. Stop of cheating us by posting old ones. I started hearing about Gongwe while I was young running such kind of positions, am now 36 still Gongwe. That’s why our country is not changing.

Imwe a Goodal Gondwe, fumanipo lekani new blood with new thinking abwerepo apo. Anthu akale ngati inu ndamene mukuononga dziko lathu la Malawi with your old old ideas. What you should know is that you are leaving intelligent people jobless, the people who if used Malawi would have been somewhere by now. You want corrupt people and hate straight forward people who can handle issues without corruption. Please resign and let Malawi be peaceful again without you.
