Mutharika woos civil servants, spoils them at Kamuzu Palace

President Peter Mutharika on Thursday took the 2019 election campaign to new heights when he hosted civil servants at Kamuzu Palace in Lilongwe for luncheon and promised them instant promotions.

President Mutharika: We will put in place a housing scheme for civil servants

First Lady Gertrude Mutharika initially invited the civil servants for lunch but later on Mutharika appeared to meet the unsuspecting civil servants.

Mutharika then ordered chief secretary to the Office of the President and Cabinet Lloyd Muhara to immediately lift a ban on promotions, saying the civil servants deserve promotion because they work hard.

“My desire is to see each one of you, every civil servant to own a house,” said Mutharika.

He said the government will put in place a housing scheme which would allow the civil servants own houses of their own and ordered Muhara to immediately implement the scheme.

He paid tribute to all civil servants be it messengers, drivers, cleaners, middle and top civil servants for working hard, saying most times they work odd and extra hours without any extra pay.

Mutharika said he has accomplished all what he wanted to in the last four years because of the civil servants.

The ruling party Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) officials selected civil servants deemed party supporters amid fears that only DPP civil servants would be promoted if at all the promotions would come

This is the parable of all politicians especially those who want to remain in office/power for a life time.They offer so many incentives then take it back in taxes. Many go against God’s will for the nation and forgetting that you and I are outing here contemplating that one day our son/daughter/grandchild/neighbor will be the next leader to some day take the country forward and not 10 times backwards. Anyway it is our God who puts up leaders and bring them down also.Just give the people what they rightly deserve and stop using the rightfully benefits as campaign gimmick to… Read more »

Gulu Lina la vitsilu ndiye aphunzitsi, I believe they allow government machinery to abuse them and can’t claim what belong to them. Though I’ve generalized in here, but I feel pity for them.

Mimba ya mkuluyu akadangochotsa ntheradi. Munthu wachabechabe. Ukufuna the poor servants lero? Anthu angovala kaunjika. Kaletu ku capitol hill kumafika stagecoach buses. Lero kabaza ndi bongos. Kale kunali emergency advance, car advance and furniture advance. CO amakhala mu area 18 and Chitawira. Pano civil servant angokhalira kuba, kusugula Mafuta mpaka ma PS, ma director etc. Mufera limodzi ndi Alamu Pumbwa Mwakalamba.

So, instead of going to Capital Hill and telling everybody in the face about the nonsense you are talking about, you decide to invite Ana Adad to the Palace for a #PoliceFoodRation share. #TimeWillTell.

Problem is that the majority of civil servants, the low paid ones, were not at the party. You won’t get their vote.

For four solid years it never crossed your mind about houses for the civil servants because the OPC in conjunction with the ministry of Home Affairs have been constructing staff houses for the police. All of them are no longer commuting from rent houses what a feat! The truth is that these grand achievements including such capital projects are matchless in our history. No lip service what a pragmatic leader who combines words with deeds. A visionary leader who talks about JB cashgate not a word on K145m pioneer investments pie coaxing civil servants into voting for DPP by reintroducing… Read more »
