Malawi’s EX-pioneers hold sit in
As the strike by ex-Malawi Young Pioneers MYPs has entered a second week some of them in the southern region have expressed concern over biasness of their officials on benefits.
Speaking in an interview with Radio Islam, one of them Isaac Keyala said their chairperson told them that, relatives of ex-MYP members who died will not receive their benefits.
“We were informed that the figure they are expecting to receive from government is about 1.5 billion kwacha,” disclosed Keyala.
He said their leader is misinforming the group as he is contradicting what government and their national task force leader is telling them.
However, speaking in an interview with Radio Islam, national task force chairperson, Fransisco Chilemba has dismissed the claims saying they organized the sit-in for all EX-MYP members in Lilongwe to avoid being robbed and deceived by their district as well as regional leaders.
“The sit in will continue until government bows down to their demands,” stressed Chilemba.
He said if government does not do anything by the end of this week they would be forced to take unspecified action.
