Truck drivers have put on hold their planned strike after the government requested for five days to resolve their grievances.
The drivers under the Professional Drivers Union and Truck Drivers Association planned to start boycotting work today.
They accused the government of failing to address their grievances which include the reduction of their passport fees to 60,000 kwacha.
In addition, they complained about poor salaries and the influx of foreign drivers employed in the country while local drivers remain unemployed.
Speaking to Capital FM today, the Association’s Chairperson Major Mkandawire threatens to start the strike, if nothing tangible comes out after five days.
