  12. If it is that then the government should make it possible to make sure that the price of comodities @ the market, shops etc should be reduced to much with the salary which civil sevants recilve per month!

  13. What a speech full of stupidity! Iwo akungodxiunjikira ndalama & allowances pomwe mphunxitsi mukufuna kt azikaba chalk ndikukagulitsa to earn a living? What about nurses, policemen/women? These Civil Servants that are being misused today here in Malawi are the ones that strategise productive plans for the country. The govt has now shown theme of hypocricy bcoz all promises assured to the civil servants are nowhere to be seen since their aim was just to get into the government inorder to bluff and flap money for their political gains. Time is coming ahead of us when a civil servant will be exalted as Jesus Christ.

  14. I think Mr Minster is talking to his fellow young Gays that he fucks. up to when? mukufuna mpaka zimasayazo ziphulike ndi ndalama zozikundikilazo? mwakula man Musazafe Malawi akukudandaulani

  15. This guy is old, thats why he is talking foolish..how can he say civil servant should not demand more money while in dpp government things are going up every day…whats funny is when opposition members in parliament brought a bill for salary encreament for them mr gondwe will not say anything in contraly he will stay quiet for the bill to pass without any problem because he knows that he will bennifit 100%…where is the love malawi?

  16. Between demanding and stealing which is better? the minister should take his time be4 speaking cause what these people are demanding for is the one which they will be working for whorst them up there are stealing what they don’t even work for.
