As long as Malawi public workers remains the least paid and most taxed in SADC cashgate in many forms will continue. How do you expect people to make ends meet when you pay them meagerly. Does govt think it will save money by denying its workers decent pay? Did APM not promise to pay decent salaries and not the change people were receiving? Has he lived up to his promise?


Why dont you empower these intstitutions, they help the govt but the govt. seem to neglect them


Ministry of Agriculture. Always in the news for the wrong reasons. Never for crop diversification, hunger eradication, irrigation or new farming methods, but always theft, theft, theft!
