NRB workers want daily allowances increased

207

Registration workers in the ongoing national identity registration exercise have asked the National Registration Bureau (NRB) to increase their daily allowances from K5600 to K20,000.

In a letter addressed to NRB, the workers have complained that the money they are receiving is not enough since the cost of living in the country is high.

Grace Chiumia

Registration workers are asking Chiumia to act on their grievances.

“You must be well aware of the difficulties we are facing and expenses we are incurring in our various locations.

The amount paid to us is considerably on lower side and this has caused most of our colleagues to resign as the amount is not enough to cater for daily expenses,” says the letter.

The workers have asked NRB to implement what responsible Minister Grace Chiumia said during the last session of Parliament that the registration officers are receiving a daily allowance of K10,000 and government is considering to raise the allowance to K20,000.

“This information alone entitles us to a legitimate expectation to receive these allowances,” says the letter.

The workers have argued that a daily allowance of K20,000 will adequately meet their needs and motivate them to perform their duties with dedication.

On another note, the registration officers have condemned NRB drivers for overspeeding the organisation’s vehicles saying the conduct could potentially endanger the workers’ lives.

“The accidents that have occurred recently have left us all anxious to travel in these speeding vehicle. We therefore humbly request that you counsel the drivers to take extra care on the roads to avoid further accidents,” says the letter.

  9. Its not all about money, but it takes a patriotism for someone to be a good citizen. Learn to ponder out what you will do for your country not what your country will do for you.

  11. Those workers deserves apay rise if yu can check properly govt scale night allowance is K20.000 so giving them 5000 its theft mind yu this is acontract and everyehere its expensive to pay such cadres,musawabere give them,ma mp just aday they get K45000 so whats the problem with these hired human resources??

    • It depends on one’s grade. K20,000 is for graduates. Most of these are data entry clerks are not graduates. Why should they get K20,000?? They can get a raise but not K20,000

    • Mmm in govenment night allowance for grade R to L is mk10,000 . K to J mk20,000. Grade I to E is around mk25000. . Grade D to A, or PO , P8, P7 , P5, P2, Have higher amount. I dnt know the grades of these toddlers. Night allowance are awarded according to grades. This money is for accommodation and food. But just resign ena apezeko ya soap.

  12. Just put them on government pay roll temporarily and let them get wages according to their grades. ambiriwa olo K100 000. singamafikenso. What papers do they have to give the nation a headache. If not happy with your pay, leave, go ans search for more greener pastures.

  13. Last Time They Cried Mumati K150,000 Per Fortnit Imachepa Akuonjezerani Kufika Pa K210,000 Mukupanganso Matama Ngat Mwatopa Siyani Enanso Adye Nao Zimenezo Aliponso Ambiri Angapange Zimenezo Osamajaila Kwambiri.

  20. Just because you were sitting down at home doing nothing and an opportunity arises doesn’t mean you have to be taken advantage of because you are poor and voiceless. And it’s this mentality that Malawians fail to advance because we have accepted our status quo as poor people hence less deserving despite the amounts of work that we do. I’ve registered myself and oooh my goodness it’s not an easy task for someone to do. You sit long hours and a thousand of people flocking from all walks of life some with attitudes and what have you for K5600 only……That’s too much yet government people are getting lots of allowances for traveling in a car to a rally or function……Everyone has their worth and it’s sad that we have been reduced to this that we say it’s okay just because I am poor I am less deserving. Very sad

  21. So you mean these kalembela men pocket k5400 per day, then multiply it by 30 days on a month, eeeeesh. So u they are demanding 20 thousand per day multiply it by 30 days of a month weeeershhhh = 600 000 kwacha hihihihi nanenso ndilembeni basi

  22. mmene ntchito zikusowera pa mw osangowalemberapo anthu ena bwanji iwo akasake ganyu ina mwina akapeze ma allawances akufunawo

  24. Nde mukufuna Malawi atukuke kapena mulemere nokha………mulibe manyazi M’mene tikuvutikila kumalaei kuno mkumat ukufuna K 20,000 per day

  25. They can packup their bags & go home to see if they can even earn the K5,600 per day. We have thousands out there loafing who’d find it a blessing to get the job & earn that little. This is the biggest challenge Africa & especially Malawi faces today that comes about with laziness where people want to come from rags to riches in a very short time. Now, you wonder what would happen if such people were given the responsibility to handle money, would there not be choking & endless Cashgates. Those holding positions in any such are the ones who attract these wild demands cos of their reckless spending & again, they could also be the ones hiding behind their junior Staff as what’s happening with our Judiciary.

    • Carter, Malawians like you are used to swallowing before they chew. Those who are rich have it through sacrifices & your get rich overnight mentality gets us nowhere cos we pretend we can afford a Motor Cycle when we don’t have enough to buy us a Bicycle. How does one demand four times the amount he/she gets or is it trying to take advantage that they’re already there & there is little time left for the Exercise or is it one way of serving as an Agents of those who are critical of the NID issue?. This reminds of how desperate our MPs always are, when they once demanded for an Increment on the very first day sitting in Parliament before they even knew where they’d start serving from, for the next five years. The Wealthy never build their wealth in a few weeks or months as we wish.

    • To be an employee doesn’t mean that you will be wealthy. Just do your maths Mr West, most of the guys doing the job are not from the same district where they are working. Go around and see if 5600 can get to food from morning to evening, accommodation & water just to mention a few in a day. It’s an organisation they are working for and some have been engaged from as far from their home as Mzuzu. Think human.

    • Mr Namwili, my argument is from K5,600 to K20,000, I guess we not serious. Do your maths aswell on the K20,000 per day on the part of the Employer & Employee. Let’s admit on some of known problems of living beyond means. Our problem is wanting to drink everyday, get hold of every Girl, buy everything & at the same time want to take home a good amount of cash, how my dear Bro. Volunteers from the World’s wealthy Countries more valuable Currencies, live in grass thatched houses, served with cheap meals & spend every Coin wisely knowing they have a long way to go & so much to do while we do the very opposite in so much of Poverty. Mind you, the wealth in those Rich Countries was all by themselves by their means.

    • Mr Joe u r right,jst think about the civil servant lowest salary it’s too low about 35000 whole month imagine, ndye wina aziti 5600 yachepa ofunika 20000 allllaa ntchito yake iti??? which means akufuna kuti pa mwez azilandila K600,000 zoona kma?? mukuganizira anthu akumudzi kma?? tchito yake yomangofila zimafomuzo ndikumasewera pa komputerpo bas alla zopusa eti ,bomalonso kungovomera zikhala zisiru zenizeni shutup!!!!!

    • @ Joe West mukungoyankhula coz simunakumanepo nazo l’ve worked b4 & l know how things can be unfair sometimes, for example you working on the same level as labourers right but simply bcos you have different skin colour one is getting more than you….what do you call that….huh?trying to get rich in a second….??

    • We should not give credit to those who oppress others in the name of patriotism…. Or ignorance….if you can do your home work well what you can find will surprise you…

    • Amapezeka kuti omwe akusogolela zinthu ngati zimenez akutenga ndalama za nkhani nkhani kuonjezela pa zomwe anawalonjeza osati coz akungoyenela Ai koma coz adulako ndalama kwa omwe ali pansi pao now tell me if that’s ok

    • Panopa manyumba a bungwe la MHC anakweza tell me if ma civil servants awapangila adjust ma salaries ao inline with the adjustment kuti kwa ameneo Akukhala m’nyumba za bungwe la MHC asapezeke ndi vuto losowa pokhala chifukwa awathamangisa atakanika kulipila

    • Carter, we have all worked before but had to quit cos it was a waste of time & energy. If you read my comment, you’ll findout at the end that I’ve not leftout those in positions. When you now come to colour of skin as you’ve said, then that’s a very serious issue that you, I & nobody else can fight cos it’s so deep rooted.

    • A Namonde tidziwitseni zimene mwafufuza. Mumadziwa kuti mukamati Malawi @ 53 zimakhala zosemphana ndi m’mene tiliri, chifukwa munthu ukawona pena sizikuyenda amangosunthapo koma kupanda kutero pamakhala chikaiko ndi mantha kuti ndipita kuti. Ziphunztseni Umisiri wotha kudziyimira panokha nkumakhala ndi liwu lomamveka popewa nkwiyo woti Abwana akulandira 50,000 ndiye sangandipatse 5,000.

  26. Kuti aliyese boma limuchitire zomwe akufuna nde zizingatheke koma mwalowa m’kati mukungoti mukadzuka, “malipiro akwere, kudziva kuphuzira kumene?

  27. Theft by trick. Ngati mwatopa chokani. Mukufuna kubera koma. Simungadutse 10 kungofikila 20. Are u for real. Mukwezeledwe 200% are you serious. Abale munthu sulemera tsiku limodzi. Aptseni mwai ena mwina amenewo azafuna 8. Much better.
