Support staff at Judiciary will this Wednesday down tools to press the government pay house allowances.
Judiciary spokesperson Mlenga Mvula said the support staff had been patient on the matter long enough and the patience has now waned.
“We wrote the government, we gave them a 21 day notice but there is silence, we have not been communicated,” he said.
He said come Wednesday, all courts will be shut down.
This follows the decision by the support staff to rebuff the Law Society of Malawi who wanted to mediate on the issue.
Treasury spokesperson Alfred Kutengule said he needed more time to find out from authorities on the matter.
But last week, a government press release said the government has no money and has made drastic cuts to budgets for monthly allocations to government departments and ministries. Mvula said even the Judiciary is yet to respond to the demands by the support staff.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
