Malawi Congress Party (MCP) running mate Sidik Mia has promised to deal with urban poverty and protecting rights of workers once voted into power in the May 21 elections.
Mia said the remarks during a campaign rally at Naotcha ground, in Chilobwe Township, Blantyre.
He further added that MCP government will increase minimum wage and ensuring that working Malawians have a noble living.
“MCP will raise minimum wage from K25, 000 to K50, 000 and the zero-rated Pay as you earn (PAYE) tax from K35, 000 to K100, 000 to ensure working Malawians have a dignified living,” he said.
He further said that it is sad to see how Malawians are being exploited in their work places.
“No one can survive with K25, 000,” Mia said.
Mia appealed to people to vote for Lazarus Chakwera if they want a better Malawi and Moses Kumkuyu as their Member of Parliament.
