Ex- Malawi Young Pioneer members have been camping at Capital Hill and War memorial pillar in Lilongwe for the past three weeks. They say they won’t go home until they are paid their dues. The members are camping at Capital Hill in the afternoon and spend the night at a bare place at the War memorial pillar in Lilongwe.

Some of them spend the whole night beside a campfire. And well-wishers bring them food inadequate though. The pictures below taken by Mana Photojournalists Govati Nyirenda and Stanley Makuti show their conditions of living at the pillar which is in Area 18 in Lilongwe.
