PS for  Health Minsitry Charles Mwansambo says delay of salaries for some health workers in the country  that has led  mass action for  workers is a result of events surrounding the cash gate scandle. The Ps has said this when he appeared before the Public accounts committee of parliament this morning.

 

He said the delay comes as some officials at accountant general have been implicated in the cash gate scandal According to Mwansambo government is currently negotiating with the striking  staff to resume work as salaries are being worked on. He also said since govt proposal to suspend IFMS, some salaries are being prepared manually hence delay to pay out salaries on time.

This morning health workers at Kamuzu Central Hospital have put their tools down living patients unattended. The issue of delay of salaries has also left the director of the hospital Dr Noor Alide homeless for 7 days as he has been chased by a landlord.
