Junior staff members at Mzuzu City Council are staging a sit-in over non-payment of their two months salaries.
A visit by reportor at the civic offices on Monday morning can reveal that most of the staff members were just wondering outside the premises which confirmed a possible sit in.
On Thursday junior staff members delivered their petition to the Chief Executive Officer McCloud Kadamâ€™manja to force the council to address the issue.
One of the junior workers who spoke on condition of anonymity told YFM that the sit-in has affected all the city councilâ€™s departments.
He disclosed that three of their representatives were in a closed door meeting with the chief executive officer on the matter.
The worker said some of his fellow workers have gone up to three months without pay a development that has affected their daily lives while others have been evicted from their homes.
Efforts to speak to Kadamâ€™manja proved futile as he was busy in a meeting with the workers union.
