Truck drivers in Malawi have started industrial action demanding improved salaries and reduction in passport renewal fees.

The drivers have parked their trucks at Kanengo, an industrial zone in the capital city of Blantyre.

According to the General Secretary of Truck Drivers union of Malawi, Grey Chisale says that drivers will resume work after their concerns are addressed.

According to the drivers, they want their employers to raise their salaries and the government through the Immigration department to ensure that passport of drivers are renewed without delay and at a reduced price of K60,000 kwacha.
