Mutharika has directed that days from 27 to 29 December this year should be public holidays for civil servants.

Mutharika: Has granted civil servants three additional days of holiday.

According to a statement signed by Chief Secretary to Government, Lloyd Muhara, the holiday extension means that civil servants will wind up officials duties on 22 December, 2017 and resume work on 2 January, 2018.

“The granting of the public holidays for the said extended period of festivities does not mean a declaration of public holidays in Malawi.

“The extended holidays are meant to enable the Civil Servants to celebrate Christmas and New Year festivities with their families and to allow them have adequate time to travel to and from various destinations during the festive season, while giving them adequate time to rest,” reads part of the statement.

The statement, however, points out that officers whose institutions provide essential duties such as hospitals, police, immigration and airports will be required to remain on duty.

These categories of officers, according to the communication, shall be allowed to take their holiday in the course of the year in order not to disrupt essential services during the Christmas and New Year holidays.

Controlling officers for such institutions have since been advised to put in place proper arrangements for staff providing essential services to proceed on holidays at an appropriate and convenient time.

“Following the granting of the extended festive holidays, the accountant general shall ensure that all civil servants are paid before and by 19 December, 2017,” reads another part of the statement.

    • Those that didnt receive theirs,should contact treasury offices in their districts.Another easy way is to contact PUSEPA office through their zone chairmen.Many have been helped in that way.
