Judiciary, employees settle for a conciliator


Office of the Attorney General and Judiciary support staff have settled for Mordecai Msisha to conciliate in the issue of house allowances and salary increment.

The two parties were given seven days to come up with the name of a mediator who would help settle the matter out of court.

The judiciary support staff want Finance Minister, Goodall Gondwe, to start paying them house allowances, as well as to effect a 27 percent salary increment.


Judiciary spokesperson, Mlenga Mvula, confirmed yesterday that the two sides have appointed Msisha in compliance with the High Court order to have the name by yesterday.

On June 30 this year, Justice Charles Mkandawire also gave the two sides 21 days to resolve their disagreements through mediators.

“The two sides shall then decide on which day to start discussions. This will also be determined by the availability of the mediator,” Mvula said.


Earlier in May, judiciary support staff went on strike which was stopped by an injunction obtained by the Attorney General, Kalekeni Kaphale.

Spokesperson for the judiciary support staff, Andy Hariwa, told The Daily Times on Monday that they had proposed four names of mediators.
