Carlsberg Malawi employees resume work: Bonuses honoured, head of finance axed

The Chief executive Officer will also be only responsible for corporate social responsibility .

The position of Kasten Von Bersek who was the  Head of Finance has been given back to former chief controller Geobra Kamanga.

Meanwhile, Denmark Office has asked Bersek to leave Malawi for his home country per to the employees demands.

In the letter, Denmark Office is furious with Bersek for his action because it emphasized that the company lost a chunk of money on Monday since there was no production.

An inside source confirmed with Nyasa Times that they have resumed work after management bowed down to their decision.

“They wrote us on Tuesday morning that we will get our 250 per cent bonuses and that Bersek has been asked to pack and go by our Headquarters office in Denmark,” said the source.
