A picture that Malawi24 has seen shows queues of people lining up to sell themselves to the employer, a strong statement of the desperation that job seekers in the country are faced with.

Unemployment conditions in Malawi have remained high and there has been no considerable efforts by government to alleviate the situation.

Most Malawians are either trapped in the unemployment bubble or they travel to riskier places such as South Africa where they are met with xenophobic violence and sexual abuse.
