Civil servants salaries up! Govt hailed

‘…teachers not included’

The Malawi Congress of Trade Union (MCTU) has commended Malawi government for increasing salaries of civil servants by 15 percent.

Pontius Kalichero

Kalichero: Commends government.

MCTU secretary general Pontius Kalichero said the salary adjustment is a good development considering the hard times the country is going through.

Kalichero said in most cases it is hard to have such increases when the government is facing economic hardships as the situation is in Malawi.

“We thank that the government has done so. The government was supposed to do so by any means and this is an exciting thing to us,” said Kalichero.

However, Teacher’s Union of Malawi (Tum) through its secretary general Dennis Kalekeni has argued that the 15 percent hike is just a rumour hence all civil servants including teachers need to wait for the official statement from the government.

Dennis-Kalekeni

Kalekeni: Says the matter has not been officially announced.

Kalekeni further said the teachers were involved in the discussions on the matter and they are sure that government is committed to hike the salaries.

In the past few months, Tum has been pushing for government to increase salaries of all the civil servants in the country.

Tum has been telling the government that as the government faces hard times, its citizens too are experiencing the same hardships hence the need to increase salaries for the civil servants to survive the current economic situation.

Government is yet to clear the rumours.

  21. let the 15% salary hike be for junior civil servants only…for seniors it must be 7.5% at least this would reduce the gap btwn rich and the poor teachers

  22. Dis z sheet government. Hw do u think these teachers wil survive with de increase cost of living. N with de little salary u. Giv dem. Dis z. Making education low bcz. No teacher will work hard. If u hv failed to run government beta jst resgn as than making things worse for pipo who make malawi for beta tomorrow

  23. And you call yourselves journalists. That’s why our President does not believe in our local media houses . Full of lies. And I wonder why some people still believe Malawi24 lies.

  24. palibe chachitikapo anthu ena last time they were given over 100% they promised the junior civil servants to wait but these same people have been given again even if its 4% 6% 8% 11% to them already their salary is huge what are the junior going to do with average 15% its just an insult just because they have no say . Palibe chilungamo apa.

  25. Musamuyese mphunzitsi kut mumve zomwe ati anene-chomwe ndikudziwa malipilo awonjezeredwa kwa aliyese apa.Kod inu a Malawi24 ndisiyatu kupanga follow page yanu-bodza 2much..shit!

  26. Discuss briefly why excluding teachers in this your so called increment in essay form. Include the effects of this increment to other civil servants and relate to price of the products on the market and other services. 20 pages, font 12.

  27. Let’s try our best as teachers to be hard workers in life and not anticipating the government to improve our social status. This is so because any civil servant in country’s world provides services to the poor citizens hence meagre pay. I believe that with our hard work the issue of dire poverty among us will be question of the past. Best wishes as we plan plunging into huddles aimed at proliferating our lives.

  28. kuyambira nthawi ya bakili,aphunzitsi amadandaula za malipiro but each and every year people are flocking to teachers training college….chonsecho tikuziwa. nde vuto ndi ndani? osamapanga ma careers ena bwanji? mieux!!

    • For u to write here u went to school were u were taught by teachers. The person to blame is President. Some pple teaching is their passion. Problem is goverment who discourage youth not to consider education as a key. We are already having shortage of teachers. Were is the future of Malawi.

    • hihihi…it took a teacher to teach u the alphabet, to teach u the spellings and here u are now able to type some words in the comment box, n then u think with all ur intelligence that teaching is a useless profession?? really???? nde ana akubadwawa sazafuna asambizi kut awaphunzitse kulemba mkuwerenga? dnt be selfish…think bfor talking….and i hope u will be able to read my comment just bcoz one good teacher did a great job of teaching u how to read.

    • I know. but why joining industry that u knw u ll not get paid? the good way is by stopping teaching as a career,then there will be no teachers. this will force gvt to knw the great jobs of the teachers bcz there will be no more education. then gvt will consider them. koma anthu akudandaula chonsechonso akuthamangira konko.

  29. Cholinga Chamabomawa Ndikupha Maphunziro Cholinga Asamapezeke Osusana Nawo Mundale Akufuna Zaka Zammawa Ana Anthu Azakhalenso Akapolo Omangidwa Matcheni Mkhosi Iwo Akudyerera Mwazi Wathu. Tsoka! Kumtundu Wa Malawi Pot Sitichedwa Kuyiwala

  32. ok.??? Only 15% but teachers not inclusive!!! MG [Authorities ]ur reasoning power i low!!! However i like dpp!

    • 3% pula is much better than the 15% n yet of teacher can not afford school fees for his son or daughter which have gone up 400%

    • 3% pula is much better than the 15% n yet of teacher can not afford school fees for his son or daughter which have gone up 400%

    • kwacha can’t be compared to Pula. Here a teacher earns less than 10 dollars/month. In Botswana teachers can afford a car while here teachers who claim themselves to be rich have bicycles.

  33. very pathetic for teachers but they are first ones to be considered as mother of all. Iam also a teacher here in mozambique and the increment of salaries was very good.

  34. The goverment don’t take seriously on education. Teacher are only necesary on election time. Just feel for them. That just discourage young pple not to consider teaching carer as a serious job. But we forget that from president to the security guard they went thru school with teachers playing a big role. Thats why i did’nt chose teaching as my carer. Ndingongole zokha zokha muma hawkers. MALAWI WAVUNDA

    • You have said it all ,fancy me I’ve been in this profession for close to 10 years.I still struggle to get things done.I walk half-bare footed,no underwear,the best meal that I can afford is soya pieces.This teaching job has indeed ruined me to the bone.God knows…….

    • What pains me a lot is the goverment take teachers like fools. All those ministers, lawyers, policemen, presidents, even teachers they went to school when they were young. My uncle use to tell me that, u know this guy who is a millionare. I taught him when he was young. And at the end of the day my uncle died with nothing to inherite. Only the name that he was a teacher. Other countries a teacher is a respected person. Because he is a driver to succes.

    • Now this government take the teachers like akapera musician, the musician singing without equipment pls pls do something.

    • The problem with this goverment is if u tell them fact. The next thing the crime is going to be planted for u. All they want is to dance their muzik. Instead of considering other pples suggestion, they consider to arrest them. Who wil stand out and sue goverment for violating our kids right to education and win. The justice,police are dancing this man muzik already. Thats why they are getting increment. Lot of pple are arrested becoz of foul play political ocherstrated cases like Mugabe style.

    • Teachers cause the problem on their career themselves. They help choosing iresponsible leaders during election for sake of cheap money. But these leader latter dash them and cause problems to whole nation

  35. Aphunzitsi akutsegulirani shop komwe muzikagulako zinthu motchipa. It will be asuper market musadandaule.. Fusani a TUM anuwo.

    • Bwanji Gift? Dont worry am ateacher too. Check my profile. Kungoti I wonder how pple blv in such nosenses. Is it possible to raise some people’s salaries and others not in the same government? Thats rubbish and not true thats y I was writing all those Gift.

  36. Ock its fine in stead of increasing salaries just employ current un employed ones but certified like ODL 6 IPTE 12 ngati alipo. I understand this boma coz it wants to increase job opputunity not salary and devalueate kwacha effectivel koma tikhuta lamba chaka chino

  37. Ngakhale atawonjedzera malipiro alindi njira zawo zambiri zomwe zingapangitse kuti ndalama ikhale yopanda mphavu.if they increase ur saraly they gonna also increase the cost of basic needs.at the end it gonna be zero paten sisani mitengo yazinthu
