MALAWI CONGRESS OF TRADE UNIONS.
STATEMENT FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE REGARDING INTERVIEWS OF … BEING CONDUCTED ACROSS THE COUNTRY BY MINISTRY OF HEALTH.
Malawi Congress of Trade Unions welcomes and always commends all efforts by government and private sector of offering employment to the youths of the country particularly that unemployment level in Malawi is significantly high.
However, the mode of interviews to such employment opportunities should be orderly, demonstrating that we are a civilised State. The manner in which Ministry of Health is conducting the so called interviews in various parts of the country is unprofessional and unacceptable as it puts the lives of the job seekers not only at risk of being injured or losing lives but also contracting the coronavirus which the same Ministry of Health is purportedly leading in preventing its spread.
Malawi Congress of Trade Unions condemns the manner in which these interviews are being held and calls upon Ministry of Health to immediately suspend the interviews and put in place proper and risk-free procedures of holding the interviews before many lives are lost.
Malawi Congress of Trade Unions calls upon all duty bearers to desist from taking advantage of the people’s vulnerability by exposing them to precarious conditions if what we see circulating in the social media is anything to go by.
