It never rain but pours on President Professor Arthur Peter Mutharika’s administration. As the Judicial strike is in the firth week,reports reaching FaceofMalawi indicates that the Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) have started a sit-in to force their employers to increase their salaries by 70 percent.

The strike comes barely hours after the expiry of the seven days ultimatum sent to Government and ACB director Lucas Kondowe, asking for salary adjustment.

In the ultimatum dated December 1, 2014, the workers accused their employers (ACB and government) of breaching contractual agreement as stipulated in the ACB Staff Terms and Conditions of Service.

“Take notice that we, the employees of the Anti-Corruption Bureau being dissatisfied with the breach of contract by the director general of the Anti-Corruption Bureau vis-à-vis enforcement of terms and conditions of service, are intending to go on strike.

“As a dispute of right, our preference was to go to court for litigation, but since the courts are almost non functional we have no choice, but to commence a strike as a way of enforcing our right under the contract”, reads in part the ultimatum.

Speaking in an interview, Kondowe confirmed receiving the ultimatum and he said he has forwarded the ultimatum to government.

A visit by FOM reporter at ACB offices in the commercial capital Blantyre found the main entree closed with posters,saying “sorry we are on strike”.

When approached for comment, one of the workers denied to comment on the matter.

The strike if not solved immediately will affect the on-going investigations in the plundering of public funds at Capitol Hill dubbed Cashgate by the media.
