Former Malawi Young Pioneers (MYP) have threatened to hold vigils at ministry of finance offices in Lilongwe if there will not be any tangible outcome from the planned meeting with officials on Friday.
Speaking to YFM, leader of the group Franco Chilemba said they are about 692 members who are yet to receive their pension despite an assurance from government that they will start paying them after the festive season.
“Up to now there is no any indication that the ministry of finance is going to pay us our money,” he said.
Chilemba further said they want the minister to verify to them the actual date when they will start paying them.
“If they will be delay tactics then we will force them to pay us and it will turn to vigils because time is still running out,” he said.
This comes after the group has had series of meetings with the ministry of finance though they have not yet been granted their money.
