The over 500 CMAs have given government a five-day ultimatum to act on their needs.

Clara Pasanje, representative of the grouping said they want government to recruit at least 500 CMAs as they have been left out for many years.

She says they want an interface with government officials within five days.

Pasanje further challenges the ministries of Health and Local Government to produce a list of all CMAs employed during previous recruitment sessions.

Who had organised the training for the community medwifery assistants.
If government had conducted their training, it means there was need for the training and therefore must employ them.

Just be thankful you were trained by teh GoM at a subsidized fee, next go look for work. What is wrong with you Malawians. when they employ you mudzitinso ma allowance malipiro kuchepa. Go open nayere clinics uko otherwise being trained does not raise expectation kuti the trainer will employ you. MINDSet change abale

Its a strange thing actually that someone seeking employment would give the potential employer ultimatums about getting employed. A strange way of reasoning for sure.

5 days or what? Did you go into contact with government concerning employment? Go look for work elsewhere or create your own.

Employment happens when there is a vacancy. Government is not the only employer. It facilitates training. If government was obligated to employ, it could freeze schooling or training for sometime because the workforce is enough for that time. So go where you can be employed.

It is impossible to create any job in malawi if we don’t change the mindset. MRA continues to milk the industry, and some companies will continue to retrench. How do you want to attract investors in such a climate ?
We do not create jobs with hope and miracle, but with economical measures and investments program. Rwanda has done and the results are now over expectations.
