Workers from China- Africa Cotton Company in Chipata protest over unpaid allowances.

Workers from China- Africa Cotton Company in Chipata Wednesday morning walked more than 4 kilometres to the provincial administration to air their grievances over unpaid allowances.
The workers who demanded to seek audience with Eastern Province Permanent Secretary Bert Mushala say that they have not been given their gratuity, transport allowance and leave term allowances after working for the company for close to a year.
The workers say that they had already lodged there complaint with the former Permanent Secretary, Emmanuel Mwamba in December last year adding that Mr. Mwamba had assigned the senior Labour Officer, Kabuba Mufana to resolve the matter.
They wondered why the matter has taken too long to be resolved.
And Eastern Province Acting Deputy Permanent Secretary, Zachariah Luhanga says that government is still following up on the matter.
Mr. Luhanga says that he is aware that the matter has taken quite some time to be resolved.
He says that this is because there were some documents that were not presented to government.
