Angry workers sealing Balaka DC offices


BALAKA-(MaraviPost)-Irate Ground workers at Balaka district council on Monday boycotted their works and shudown the council offices in demand month salaries.

According to one of the workers, Time Nansongole, it has been four months without being payed and the council has been feeding them with nothing but lies.

He said the workers agreed to protest as one way of forcing the council to immediately respond to their demand.

The workers said they will not go back to their respective jobs or allow the council officials to open the sealed offices until they bowdown to their demand.

While confirming the development, Balaka district council Public Relations Officer Mary Makhiringa said the delay was due to lack of fund.

However, she said the council is doing everything to settle the matter
