Striking Judiciary junior employees on Tuesday prayed as their strike entered a second week. The employees want to press Malawi Government to implement new conditions of service which were approved in 2006.
During the prayers, the staff asked God to guide them during their sit-in until they receive what is due to them. They also asked God to guide their representatives who are negotiating with government on the matter.
Central Region Police spokesperson John Namalenga has since said the strike has affected the police because their cells are overcrowded.Ã‚Â He said the congestion is more critical in district police cells.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“Justice delayed is justice denied. As we are taking long to prosecute them [suspects], some of them can jeopardise police investigations,Ã¢â‚¬Â said Namalenga. Ã¢â‚¬â€Amos Gumulira, Staff Reporter
