Government puts on hold intake of new interns

“The ministry therefore wishes to inform all interns who were included in the new intake not to report to district assemblies for registration and to work places to start working as earlier communicated until further notice,” says Banda.

The last cohort of interns complained of low pay whilst women complained of sexual harassment as their bosses proposed relationships to them.

The reason they have withheld the list is that it contains mostly southerners (Lomwes to be specific) and Government is afraid that once the public knows it there is political turmoil.

Munawavotera nokha, there is simply no money and they fed you lies during the campaign period. Mark my words, Mombera University wont take off, neither the University in Nsanje nor the Nyasa and Nomads stadiums. Campaign lies
