Joyce Banda’s retirement package thrown to the grave

138

The Malawi against Physical Disabilities body has expressed dismay over demands by former President Joyce Banda that she is not coming home unless government prepares her retirement package.

In the package, Banda demanded a house and security detail arguing that the country has experienced insecurity that has seen top government officials being attacked by robbers. Reacting to the news, the disability body has described the claims as useless.

Joyce Banda

Banda: Remains outside Malawi.

“What is baffling is that Joyce Banda is said to be looking for retirement benefits. Did she retire? “What kind of organization or company can you be paid retirement benefits after working for ninety days in the case of Zambia or two years in the case of Malawi?” queried the organization in a statement.

The body further said JB, as the ex Malawi leader is fondly known was fired from the position of the President through the last general elections in 2014 and there is no need to give her a retirement package as if she has worked for a long period.

“When someone has been employed, he or she comes from a home and while working he /she is supposed to prepare a home and not leave that responsibility to other people”

“These people therefore have homes, so why should taxpayers suffer the cost of housing them, feeding them, providing security for them and why security when they have wronged no one?” reads part of the statement.

Meanwhile Peoples Party (PP) has sided with Banda on the delay of her coming to Malawi after her self-imposed exile following a defeat during the 2014 elections.

  5. She knows the law better than these politically misguided dis abled idiots. Her husband offers free legal advice to her. Otherise if it was not right for her to demand what she demands now ,his husband would already have advised her not to make such demands . All she does is legal because she has someone who knows the law better near her. A genuine lawyer for that matter. Not a fake one like our old evil tribalistic president#Alfred

  11. Overstay ya JB kunja is a blessing to the DPP led govt. Inu a DPP sangalalani kuti JB ali kunja, ndipo muzipempera kuti asabwere msanga. JB came 3rd in presidential polls but she has more info to finish off APM. Most of u comment non-academically. Chakwera and JB put on the same scale it is JB amene angagwese DPP. Am not talking of winning an election

  13. Treat her appropriately enough;she was our president and she is our ex president worthy of retirement package, she deserves respect! If government can’t afford to do so it suppose to reveal the realities than let the throng barking at unknown out of the reality of law enforcement!.. Remember its happening to Ex President not to Ex manager… Or else “The Law of Average” igwiritsani tchito… Nangupazamo niju uthyo n’nkhani!

  14. satana wachabechabe amafuna kugwesa dziko ndi kuba shame sitikusowa ngakhale mpang’ono pomwenso mbava maximum ikukudikira kuno mbuzi

  16. They will not be respected if they r influenced by policians to say rubbish. And what they should know is that one day the same thing will happen to someone else not Joyce whom they have declared to be their enemy for the reasons best known to themselves. Does Joyce not know what the constitution say on this issue? Joyce knows better than these idiots. After all his husband is a lawyer by profession

  17. ANTHUWA NDINDANI NDINAVAPO SALARY YA JB IMAWATHANDIZA ANTHU OPUNDUKA NDI OMWEWA AKUNENA MWANO OPUNDUKAWO MULUNGU AWACHIZE ADZIYENDA ASADYE ZO PASIDWA ADZIGWIRA NCHITO

  21. Poor Reporting Of The Year,first JB Has All The Rights To Stay Wherever She Wishes For Any Period.Where Was Peter All These Years.Whether U Like T Or Not She Wil Stil B Given Her Entitlement As Per Consititution.
    On Cash Gate Who Can Come With Evidence Enof To Take Her To Court I?If U Have One Thats Gud Go To Court She Wil B Issued Wit A Warrant Of Arrestbt As Of Now She Is A Free Citizen.Those That Store Money R Being Charged.Inuso Mutafuna Ngati Ndalama Mulinazo Mutha Kukakhala Dziko Lililonse Olo Osadzabweraso,palibe Angakufuseni.So Jb As Of Now Has No Case Wat Soever.Mene Pavutira Pamalawimu Azidzatani Olo Muli Inu.Kabungwe Kanena Zimenezoko Mukabweleke Constitution Yamalawi Awelenge.Malamulo Sawadziwa.

  22. Madam JB if you can remember very well you were a care taker, for two year if amnot mistaken so nothing for you madam president, sorry eeeh very sorry!

  23. Wat’s wrong mlw and the physically challenged? Hope u r only physically challenged and not mentally. JB’s retirement package is her rightful entitlement. She deserves it. Y blocking her? Do we all know their conditions of service? Find out!

  24. Amayi bweraniko moti kilisimisi mukadyeleso kwawo kwa azungu pliz bwerani cell ikudikila ku zomba ana anu aja akubwezasotu magalimoto nde kaya mwina ndalama zakuthelani tigulise GPY

  25. Dzulo mumapempha chitetezo lero mukupempha retirement package, mawa mupempha chiyani? Mayi muvuta bwanji. Mukudikira overstay mukwere yaulere. Retirement package iwalani panopa a president ali busyz kukonzanso Malawi munamuononga uja.

  26. Malawi24 are sure Malawi Physical Disability talked about this you have reported??Pali kugwirizana kotani pakati pa bungwe limeneli ndi nkhani ya JB?Anyway there is freedom and rights but if they’ve really talked I feel they’ve gone to the extreme!!!

  27. Guys its not a demand.Obvious the goverment wil give her a house whelther u like it or not.Its the law for any former president of our country.It does not matter what political u belong.

  28. I think we need to revisit our laws, hw could we offer a retirement package to some1 who is interested for the same post. Is JB telling us that she will not stand for elections come 2019? Parliament do something plz. Lets use the resources for development.

  29. Amai a JB ngati simunamve kuti ngololo ija amati simungakoke chifukwa ndinu mai, abambo aja mumalo mokoka aigwesa poti kuidzusa akulephela. Bola inu mai poti mumakoka pang’ono pang’ono imaenda, koma bambo mmmmmmmm zachisoni.

  30. Nanunso pena muzilemba what is seen as newsworthy. When u work 4 2yrs u dont deserve a retirement package? Poor reporting!
