Malawi: Teachers in Public Schools Resume Strike


Teachers in public schools are on Tuesday expected to resume strike to force the government pay them covid-19 risk allowances.

This follows the expiry of the seven day ultimatum teachers gave to government.

Teachers Union of Malawi President, Willie Malimba has confirmed the development; saying authorities have failed to honour resolutions made on giving the teachers funds for their own purchase of COVID-19 personal protective equipment.

Over the weekend, Information Minister Gospel Kazako was optimistic the teachers' issue would be resolved.
