Janet Chipini, one of the former councilors said Salima district council and Local government ministry are tossing the issue to each other.

“Our colleagues in some districts have already received their gratuity. We wonder why we, in Salima cannot access the money we worked for,” she said.

Watson Mavingo of the Salima district council said the council is working with the ministry of Local Government to pay the councilors all their gratuity money.

He asked the former councilor to remain calm, peaceful and patient saying they will get their money soon.

It took former councilors of Lilongwe to protest before the government paid out the money.
