However, in an interview on Wednesday, NSO Public Relations Officer Kingsley Manda has said the delays could be with enumerators' individual banks as the organisation deposited cheques for all the enumerators last week.
One of the enumerators based in Mangochi said despite others reportedly receiving their allowances he is yet to receive his.
"What is worrying me most is that since NSO started saying they deposited the money nothing is registering in my account which is causing me worries. I need this money," he complained.
He claimed he is not only alone who is not paid yet claiming a lot of people in Mangochi and other districts have not been paid yet.
However, another enumerator said he has received his allowances.
"May be it has to do with the bank because as for me my account is domiciled at NBS bank and I received my allowances last week," said Kondwani Phiri.
Another enumerator Levi Mdoka whose account is domiciled at National Bank corroborated that he received his money last week.
“I received mine several days ago," he said.
Ironically those complaining of having not received their money also belong to these banks. However, according to Manda, NSO deposited cheques in all banks last week.
"This explains why others are saying they have started receiving their money. Everyone will receive their money because as far as we are concerned we deposited cheques for everyone if there are delays it could be with their banks,” said Manda.
