Former President of the republic of Malawi Joyce Banda’s husband, Richard Banda risks getting arrested for failing to pay over 200 tenants who worked at his Njaliwe Estate at Ntunthama in Kasungu.
Reports indicate that Banda owes the workers over K4 million kwacha and the labourers have since reported the matter to the Kasungu labour office.
FaceofMalawi speaking to Kasungu district labour officer Olive Panyanja confirmed of the development saying Richard Banda hired the workers during the 2012/13 growing season.
Banda is then said to have abandoned the workers in August at the time when they were expecting to receive their annual wage amounting K4.7 million kwacha, said Panyanja.
Panyanja further added that the labour office has tried in vain to persuade the former chief justice to pay the workers who are now stuck at the boma.
