Chilima promises better days for Malawi civil servants, teachers: ‘One salary structure’

Vice President Salous Chilima has assured civil servants and those working in parastatals that Tonse Alliance will introduce a new standardised salary structure for civil servants and those in public service which will be higher than what they are receiving now.

Chilima: To spearhead reforms

“Tonse Alliance will introduce a new and higher salary structure for the civil and public services. We will standardise salaries for civil servants and those working in parastatals…there will be one salary structure which shall be higher than lower,” said Chilima.

He was speaking during whistle stop tours he is conducting in the Esteran region from Thursday to Monday.

Chilima also said all upgraded and deserving teachers and civil servants across the country will be promoted as a matter of priority.

He further said Tonse Alliance will make sure that those in the armed forces get their just rewards, including those on various peace keeping missions.

“All upgraded and deserving teachers and civil servants must be promoted. All armed forces must be paid their due reward for their service including all peace keeping service to Malawi,”said Chilima.

The Veep was in charge of reforms in government which saw civil servants receiving better salaries before the reforms were taken away from him.

Chilima is conducting a total of 18 whistle stops in the Eastern region from Thursday to Monday campaigning for MCP Presidential candidate Lazarous Chakwera.

Chilima, who is UTM Leader and runningate to Chakwera, will also hold two rallies at Gymkhana club in Zomba on Saturday and St Augustine in Mangochi on Sunday.

Just throwing words out there.how on earth is that feasible. Which donors would approve of this on top of 4000 kwacha bags of maize??? Currently government already subsides 12000 kwacha per bag. You also told us you will subsidise 2 million jobs. Tell us how?Do u know economics Mr Chilima? I fear a Tonse government would be worse than the PP government.

Malawi belong to the citizens

That’s great, anthu azutukuka.Chilima you have a good vision for the country, people first.Tonse alliance motomoto.That will increase buying power for the civil servants, which will bring growth in our economy. Thanks chilima and Chakwera, make Malawi great again.

This is purely the voice of Satan; how much of revenue would you raise to implement this? Mukufuna muzatiphe ndimisonkho eeet! Kapena mukudalila ndalama mukuti zikubedwa, how much do you think is being stolen that you think if protected (if indeed there is that money) can sustain that ambitious promise, my foot! Takhalaniko a little realistic guys. Azunguso ndiawa mwaatukwanatukwana kuti ndima electoral tourists, you think they can intervene?

Bakili Muluzi is not happy with the Chilima whistle stop tours in Eastern Region, he might be the one behind the reported violence scenes in Machinga.This is the type of selfishness and greediness that the likes of Bakili Muluzi have lived with for many many years, unfortunately Malawians have already made up decisions to vote APM out of State house.

That’s what Malawians need to hear and not cries from the already defeated gogo and mwana wa mbava.

We want to hear of things that will benefit Malawians. There are many things that have gone wrong since 1994. The first and foremost is the dwindling standards of education in public schools. Chakwera and Chilima know very well that before 1994 Malawi had very few private schools and almost 99.9% of the children went through the public schools. You have to find out why the public schools are now schools for the poor. This simply means that the poor will remain poor and the rich will get better education. Look at the results of selection to university. You will… Read more »

Increasing salaries will trigger commodity price increases such that even maize prices will increase. You may think reduced prices on fertilizer will increase maize production yet fertilizer is not the only direct farm input to produce maize. After all there is no way fertilizer prices can be subsidized to reach about ten million active people including large businesses.Demand will increase resulting to scarcity. This demand will not necessarily come from domestic farmers but from neibhouring countries.

Neibouring countries will attract black market to this hence more planing needs to get done on fertiliser issue
