Malawians uproar as govt intends to employ Civo Utd players

102

The Malawi government has come under fire for intentions to give jobs toΒ  Civo United F.C players in the civil service,after beating Mighty Wanderers in the 2015 Standard Bank Knockout Cup final in Lilongwe.

A cross section Malawians commenting on several media outlets social media platforms wonder the basis for employing the players, some of whom they dub ‘not educated.’

‘So everyone will get a job for the win.What of those with very low qualifications and wits to work in the civil service.” commentated one fan with other backing the argument.

Civo United

Civo United players to be given jobs by government.

Some Facebook users while commenting in vernacular Chichewa trashed the decision in the wake of incessant reports of trained doctors leaving Malawi due to failure by the government to employ them.

Government’s Chief Secretary George Nkondiwa made the promise at Sunbird Capital Hotel in Lilongwe during a luncheon with the newly crowned Standard Bank Cup champions.

He was responding towards Civo’s captain Emmanue Zoya’s request in which he pleaded with the Capital Hill to consider providing jobs to the players since football is a very short term career.

“I pleaded with government to employ us as football isn’t enough to keep us going. Our football career is very short so we don’t want to be beggars when our playing days are over,” said Zoya.

In his response, Nkondiwa said government will soon start employing the players but was quick to say only those with right qualifications will be considered for various job post in the Civil Services.

“We have heard them and let me assure the players that those with right qualifications should compete for available jobs in the civil services and be considered like any other member of the society,” he said.

The Civil Servants ended their trophy drought in style courtesy of a last gasp tap in from Nelson Kangunje to end the Nomad’s cup success for the past 12 years.

  1. atolankhani tamanvetsetsani zomwe munthu wayankhula,, the statement was straight forward and u shld not mislead pipo…”we are ready to employ you, if you are qualified bribg your CVs to oyr offices”…he clearly stated kuti qualifications not coz they have beaten wanderers….

  2. A Malawi tili ndi vuto izi zinayambika kale Civo imatsalira kulemba ntchito anyamata ake.Army teams are doing it so are Police teams nde phokoso libwele coz ndi Civo.Big up Civo service united management ziyambike basi

  3. Anthu enanu nd zitsiru, tawerengani kae nkhaniyo nde muzipanga comment bwino… it says it will employ those with the right qualification and will be treated as anybody in the society no favouritism…

  4. I support the government on this one. This will motivate these young men to work extremely hard. This is talent that needs to be appropriated n I wonder why many people n companies ignore this career.

  5. mmmmmmmmmmMmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm koma tiziwona ndithu kodi athu wosaphuzila muwalemba bwanji tchito pomwe wophuzila akuvutika akuchita kutuwa pamulomo ngati adya chinangwa chokukuta nde mukatenge mbuzi zazi mwasowa chochita agalu inu mwapanga bwanji?

  6. Mmmmh last season bulets inatenga carlsberg and tnm super league kma izi sisinazimve and this season b4ward yatenga carlsberg simunayankhuleso zimenezi,,,,,,ndye apapa mukut chaa?? Kukondera2 kumeneko ma team enawo amasewera ndiazibambo? Mesaso ndianyamata..muganize bwino

  7. Yet 50 fresh graduate doctors are getting jobs outside the country coz boma silikuwapasa tchito. Our priorities are outside the window as a country

  8. Kod pot ma players ena ndi mbuli awalemba job yanj kod zamabodza basi ndatopa nazo mukukaniza kulemba ma nurse doctors teachers etc ndie ma player guyz kanamani bwino

  9. my malawi …zafika pamenepa…ifeso mwina tiyambetu mpira kuti boma lidzatilembe tchito….you called us youth that we are leaders of tomorow but your the ones hiding keys for us not to enter…

  10. I don’t see any problem here for sponsors of a team to employ its players. In fact, mwachedwa nazo, you could have employed them way back in time. Malawi Defence Force imalemba ntchito ma player ndi ma boxer opanda mapepala komanso odutsa age-bracket yolembedwa ntchito ya usilikali, who complains? Search me.

    By the way, I am told that boma lipanga employ more than 100 people to man the soon-to-be opened Bingu International Stadium. My suggestion is that Civo Service United players should be priotised when recruiting these employees. If Be Forward says it will employ Mighty Be Forward Wanderers players, who can complain? No one, it’s a family affair. Enawa akungokuwa sakudziwa kuti Civo is sponsored by the government.
