Barely six months after Malawi civil servants got a 61 percent salary hike last February, government has given the public workers another 43 percent salary increment.
Following a meeting Civil Servants Trade Union (CSTU) and Government Negotiating Team (GNT) held on 17 June 2013, it was agreed that government walk its February talk in which it promised another salary hike this July.
