Govt pledges to help ex-miners get their benefits

34

The Malawi Government has assured ex-miners that it will help them get their benefits for the work they did in South Africa.

The Ministry of Labour, Youth and Manpower Development says it will continue working together with the ex-miners committee to see to it that all former miners get their money.

Minister responsible Henry Mussa said government has not received money to give the former miners but claimed that when the money is sent it will land into the former mine worker’s accounts.

Mussa says govt has considered the workers.

“Government has not received money as rumoured as all ex-miners were requested to send their bank accounts where their money will be received,” said Mussa.

He added that it is a process that is required to be followed for satisfaction in as far as the benefits of the ex-miners are concerned.

Mussa further said that the first process was completed and details of 36,000 ex-miners were sent to the pension fund administrators in South Africa but only 9,000 have been approved to receive the benefits.

According to Mussa, they are now waiting for administrators of the fund to pay the approved ex-miners.

In the late 1960S some Malawians left the country to work in South African mines. While in South Africa, some of the miners became members of pension schemeS to which they contributed funds but returned home without getting the benefits.

In 2013, South Africa notified Malawi of the unclaimed money and asked government to identify the beneficiaries.

  3. Keep quite if you don’t have a word to tell the nation than giving lies to people. How true are you that this time the ex miners are going to get their dues? Nanga amene makolo awo anakagwila ku migodi koma anamwalira muwathandiza bwanji? Osabweletsa mabodza kapena kusekesa anthu pa zinthu mukudziwa kuti sizitheka.

  4. Mr. Minister,how many times are going to lie to ex miners of their dues? During the tenure of Dr. Muluzi,those who worked in RSA Mines made appropriety registrations,nothing yield or to hear that the money came and govt has used it. Came Bingu in power same thing and today Peter in office,will it materialize? What you should know is most of ex miners are dead,how are you going to treat on their relatives who are alive to get the dues of their departed loved fathers?

  8. @ Brian Boyce I really agree with u dat de must leave the dead dog, most of dem were dead including my grand father , can they give me if Iproduce the papers on his behalf? Since 1994 the old madala were flocking up & down hoping to get their dues .am saying leave it.

    • You see these good for nothing politicians always want to transfer the blame on somebody to shield their failure.Okky if he was not in this cabnet where would he talk about this nosense. We even forgot that this issue is still ticking in their minds for them to gain a momentum of popularity and public sympathy man

  9. Let the sleeping dogs enjoy their sleep Mr Minister. Dont provoke them anymore,they have already considered it a dead isaue.You were with Bakili Muluzi you failed,with Bingu you failed again,now that most of the ex-miners are dead you want to bring the issue back on the table, ex-miners already lost trust in politicians
