Family Planning Association of Malawi (FPAM) board of directors have finally bowed down to staff demands who went on strike last week over allegations that the organisation’s Chief executive Mathias Chatuluka was treating them unfairly treatment, nepotism and sleeping with a junior staff member suspending him indefinitely pending investigations, Nyasa Times has learnt.
The FPAM board of directors suspended Chatuluka after meeting with the disgruntled staff last week at the organisation’s headquarters in Area 14, Lilongwe where among other things resolved issues pertaining to a 100 percent salary increment for all staff.
One of the PFAM staff who did not want to be named told Nyasa Times that the board finally decided to meet the staff to hear their concerns and immediately suspended Chatuluka to pave was for investigations.
“We met the board of directors and after listened to our concerns and the chief executive’s side they decided to suspend him and investigate into our concerns further. At least we are happy they gave us a chance to empty out chests. I think the board understood why we were so angry. There was just too much going on. About 11 senior staff left because they couldn’t stand the chief executive’s attitude,” said the staff.
Chatuluka refused to comment on the matter when contacted.
He was accused by his staff of being self-centred, selfishness, nepotism, favouritism and sleeping around with junior staff members.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
