"While every effort is being taken to ensure that the affected MDAs access their August 2017 salaries on time, the following might receive their salaries late for non submission of the GP5As; Vote 80 (National Assembly); Vote 341 (Malawi Police Service); Vote 470 (Ministry of Natural Resources, Energy and Mining. All Councis except Likoma District Council," said Botolo in statement made available to Nyasa Times.
