The Civil Service Trade Union (CSTU) has disclosed that Malawi government has resolved to adjust minimum salary for civil servants from K60,000 to K72,000 per month.
This comes as civil servants under CSTU are threatening to start downing tools on Monday if government fails to meet the demands.
CSTU general secretary Madalitso Njolomole disclosed that though the union demanded a minimum pay to be at K75,000 government has promised to pay K72,000.
Njolomole added that the union has requested to revise perks for teachers and nurses working in public schools and hospitals respectively.
During the 2017/18 budget presentation, minister of finance Goodall Gondwe disclosed that civil servants are to get 10 percent increment on their salaries, a development that angered the civil servants.
They said the money would not meet their costs of living in the country hence the decision to have the salary increased to a minimum of K75,000.
Though civil servants have a minimum salary of K60, 000 some government institutions like Admarc are reported to be giving their most junior employees as low as K25, 000 per month.
Maso ngati satana….nthawi zonse kuti mukweze ma salary ama civil servants mpaka muvute pomwe mukuwona kuti zinthu zakwera
Das foolish. Mp amapangako chani ku nyumba yamalamulo kungo chezako basi 95% nkhalamba inu pena tiziganizilana.
K72 pin is still a mere pittance to a civil servant. I don’t think things will change in Malawi economically since its all top leaders are almost currupt and rapacious. Look at the things how they soar in price in the country! This is ridiculous. Ndrama ilibe mphamvu.
Grant!Grant!Kkkkk Ndi R1,450.00 or less??
Which is which Zodiac is mentioning that the two part have not yet agreed on the increment
Kandalama Kot Ma Mp Amakamwela Pa 1 Hour Aka Alaaa

They should not tax we the enocent
They just say on de ground but failed to emplement
Yet the Mps are just dozing and danglering on their ties without smouldering in their constituencies,2019 no SCARFOLDS for you.
Is any nation in Africa a civil servant rcvng thousand kwacha? See ur neighbours u hear mnmum saraly HUNDRED THOUSAND kagwere ukoooo. Shame to this government, wait in 2019 u gonna see.

Your currency is strong, our kwacha’s is useless
I ddnt know dear.

72.000 mmm.ndiye mwati chani?
Good for nothing
akufuna MP zake ziziyenda bwino, ife tizingovutika kugwira ntchito.mapwanga tionana 2019
Nde mwapemphaso yochepatu ka 72 basi

It’s better to be a foreigners in a foreign country but nkumalandla R6 500 minimum wage b4 Jacob Zuma nayeso kutengapo zake
Inuso sikuti muzinamiza anthu ineso ndili ku south Africa konkuno amalawi akuvutika kwambili
So main problem is asogoleri anuwo ndiamene akuononga dziko kuti aanthu azivutika
Its a pity that mps that already go home with full pockets are still accumulating worthy in the name of salary increment. How can their salaries be raised by 95%? So u expect civil servants to be quiet? I don’t this government is doing fair enough, we all need money, civil servants are government’s machinery, without us nothing can move in government systems. Mps only stay in Parliament arguing on simple matters just to amass allowances
Muimve lend tsopano
Why should Mp get 95% ? Wake up
wait for enormous taxes now, ,
i hate this government
Pa 72 grand po akatero atchetcheponso nsonkho kusala ndi 48 grand haha malawi
Not tax but deductions..
Inu nkhan ngat iz zamazipanga share.aaa
Nothing worthy better 72 grand its nothing civil servants needs 100 plus lowest paid
R is the grade in civil service
So Malawian civil servants get far much less than Office orderlies in Zambia?
K72, 000(MK) is equivalent to K969(ZMK)….. The lowest paid civil servant in Zambia is an office orderly or general worker and they get K3, 000 (ZMK)….
….and K3, 000 is about K230, 00mk…..
Malawi and Zambia have different economies!
Mqiso Isaacs Gondwe, that’s true. I’ve friends who are teachers in Mchinji and Lilongwe… K13 ZMK is equal to K1000 MK….
The lowest paid teacher in Zambia gets K4, 200 ZMK
Zambia has mines, they have been exporting copper for a long time. Such economy can not be equaled with that of Malawi which has been predominantly agrobased for many years.
You are right Joseph Brian Nachiye…. Thanx
And go to S.Africa. u will find out the lowest pay for a civil sevant is R5000 which is almost Mk250,000. This is bcz economy is different,once u just crossed the border,dont compare things among countries
Ujeni Uyu Laughvirus, we do compare wages across countries in Economics in relation to inflation and other economic fundamentals. So how do you say, economies are different without comparing things across borders…
Zambia bread nd ma thousand/bread pamene Malawi nd ma hundred.
U Also Look At The Buying Power In These Countries
The same is for messengerial pipo
John Louis Kayira, I was in Lilongwe last month. To be realistic, MK 60,000 buys a handful of things….
kuno nkumalawi baba…and ur comparison is nonsese..mwakulira kuti muzidzidzimuka ndimasalaries ama civil servant??
Nosense comment from Du Dha
poorest country in the world dont u know
Nothing has been done here because K72,000.00 isn’t enough
Ndiye tigwireno ntchito tsopano
K60,000 per month..which means its K 2000/day.
K2000 =R 40/ day .
What are you trying to say? South Africa is South Africa and don’t you dare compare with Malawi
Yes brother Conel,i cant compare malawi with south Africa, but its government responsibility to think about the welfare of civil servant,….some are living in rented houses,they have children’s who needs school fees,…what about the basic needs?
So? is Malawi not South Africa,
I wonder this guyz amanyoza salary yapamalawi but akabwera iwooo kuno 3months kusalangalala kwinako mavutoo okhaokha kumamu pumphaso olandira salary yochepa yapa malawiyo
Minimum salary should be 100pin hit like if you agree
Kkkkkkkkk graduate his salary 40,000 …..malawi kukondera
Hahahahahahahahaha but its not fair that people can’t afford to buy a tv cash just because of the high cost of living
Kkkkkk hahahahahaha always installment?????
Moyo oipa these politicians r very greedy we also need an economic revolution kwathuku to level the gap between the haves and don’t haves
Hahahahahahhaa they will never give that chance to poor ppoh all they want azitiona tikukanda basi?????
But I can see the winds of change blowing all over Africa people are getting tired of empty promises they want actions and change they can see
Hahahahahahahahaa chaos in african countries
Mmmmmmmmmmm koma malawi wanyanya
GRADE LAKE LITI LIMENELI
‘R’ its the lowest grade
its an increment of 16.6% to civil service while an Mp carts home with 95% is that fair? The government could have done better than than bowing down to selfish demands of the insatiable Mps who r only sabotaging government machinery Government why r u holding innocent malawians at ransom appeasing the Mps who have just rubber stamped the budget since a carrot is dangling in front of it
Comparing apples to bananas!
