Malawi law society today staged marches country-wide in support of the ongoing judicial strike that has affected the rule of law in the country.

In a show of solidarity, lawyers dressed in their court wigs, gowns and flaps, staged marches around court premises in the capital Lilongwe, Blantyre and Mzuzu to push the office of the president and cabinet to act and implement the promised salaries.

In 2006, authorities approved revised terms of and conditions of service of junior members of staff in the judiciary to comply with the Judicature Administrative Act.

But this has not been implemented in full to-date hence the strike, which is now in its third week.
