DPP-led government makes u-turn on graduate  interns campaign promise

The Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) led government has made an abrupt u-turn on President Peter Mutharika campaign promise to employ graduate youth recruited in government under internship program.

DPP manifesto 2019

Ministry of Labour spokesperson Christina Mtukumula said there was no binding commitment of the government to employ the youth permanently in government.

“The internship program was only meant to make the youth ready for employment opportunities elsewhere,” said Mtukumula.

She said the youth under the internship program will have to compete with other contesters during job interviews if they wanted to join the civil service.

Government has not renewed internship for some of the youth whose internship program expired.

Mutharika assured the youth in the run up to the May 21 elections that the government would permanently employ them in the 150,000 strong civil service.

Some stupid youths voted DPP/APM based on empty promises. It’s sad they were hoodwinked and used like condoms and are now being thrown in the dust bin. On reflection, did anyone really trust DPP manifesto?

Many intellectuals will realise too late that Malawi has been captured by ratant crooks who are on a mission to root all valuable resources of the idle and unique Malawians
I feel ashamed today to see many intellectuals never gets their educational rewards for a better life and face xenophobia in South Africa and beeing drawned in Mediterranean sea enroute to Europe
Shame Devil Peoples Party
