30 officers quit registration job


Pressure is mounting on the National Registration Bureau (NRB) to increase pay for the people recruited to carry out the national registration exercise following reports that 30 registration officers who were deployed to Mchinji for the exercise last week have quit.

Impeccable sources have told The Daily Times that the NRB is having a tough time to impress supervisors who were expected to be deployed to some of the districts to be covered in the first phase of the project, especially registration officers.

Our sources reveal that after staying in Mchinji for a week, they found life unbearable to live on K5,000 a day.


This follows reports that 38 other supervisors quit the job last week due to what they call meagre salaries.

Darlington Hukuimwe, a Human Resource and Management Consultant from PricewaterhouseCoopers, which is the recruiting agency in the exercise, declined to comment on the development, saying NRB’s spokesperson Norman Fulatila was better placed to comment on the issue.

However, Hukuimwe, could neither deny nor confirm the exodus of the 30 registration officers in Mchinji.


Fulatila’s mobile phone went unanswered after several attempts.

Some people who are yet to be deployed for the exercise are being kept at the bureau’s warehouse situated along the Lilongwe-Mchinji Road.
