Mzuni lectures plan strike, pressure build on Malawi govt

As if the on going strikes that have marred the country’s everyday business are not enough, Mzuzu University (Mzuni) lectures have threatened to lay down tools unless government honor their 41 percent pay hike.

According to inside sources,  the agreement was reached at on Monday during a meeting which the lectures had.

“The cost of living is high nowadays compared to what we receive as salaries. We have agreed to write government to increase our salaries or else we will join our friends who are currently on strike,” said one of the academic staff who refused to be named.

Recently, government increased their salary with 14 percent.

The country is currently rocked with spate of industrial strikes which has hit the Judiciary and paralysed delivery of justice as courts are shut down.

Employees at Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) on Tuesday also  embarked on a nationwide sit-in after rejecting a 10-percent salary increase offer from the government.

The disgruntled staff have closed all ACB offices in the country, threatening not to open until their demands are met.

In a letter to the government, the employees described the 10 percent increment as a mockery.

“We want our salaries to be raised by 75 percent, not what has been offered by government,” the letter said.

The staff gave the government a seven-day ultimatum last week to agree to their demands or face a strike action.

We must be patient because even the rich countries they are also experiencing financial problems like ours. The solution is only to work hard in everything than wasting time critisizing petpr. Our money were stolen by JB administration.

If Goodall and Peter think this is about money, then you are mistaken. People are simply tired of this mediocre leadership that stole its votes.

Dzuka Peter. If I were you, I would fire Goodall to buy some time and bring the ball to the centre. Goodall other have mssed you up in the pronouncements.
