About 177 former members of the Malawi Young Pioneer have threatened to invade State House in an effort to have their grievances heard over the terminal benefits which the government owes them.
The ex-MYPs have camped overnight outside the gates of Capital Hill after officials from the Ministry of Finance failed to meet them on Monday.
When the ex-MYPs met government officials in May this year, they were informed that the money would be paid out after three weeks.
Chairperson of the ex-MYP members Franco Chilemba said the Minister of Finance promised them that their dues would be paid after the budget is passed.
The government owes the 2 765 ex-MYPs about K1.6 billion following the disbandment of the militant group in 1994.
