He continued saying efforts to liaise with the labor office in Lilongwe were done but to no avail hence the storming at the offices on Friday.

When asked to comment on the matter, the Project Officer for the survey Frank Mvalo said he could not comment on the matter at the time.

Meanwhile the commotion has ceased a bit as the workers have been assured by the Chief Executive Officer Alex Mkandawire that their wages will be sorted by September 14, 2020.
