CSTU condemns Capital Hill invasion

Civil Servants Trade Union (CSTU) has condemned the invasion by Malawi Congress Party (MCP) supporters at Capital Hill, in protest against the May 21 presidential election results.

The supporters demanded all staff to leave the premises saying that they are working for an illegal government.

In an interview with YFM, CSTU General Secretary, Madalitso Njolomole said civil servants are not elected employees and they do not practice politics at any level.

We have to remind the general public that we civil servants are not politicians,” he said.

Njolomole has therefore asked all civil servants to continue with their daily responsibilities in their offices.  

But reacting to the condemnation, MCP’s spokesperson Reverend Morris Munthali said the Capital Hill invasion was not only done by the supporters of the MCP, so it is wrong to condemn the party.

We are talking of sympathizers and those that are not happy with the results for the May 21 elections so anybody can be in that group,” he said.

Munthali said the civil servants must be the first to condemn what he described as ‘theft’ in the elections.
