Malawi Teachers declared National Strike Over Pay

Public primary and secondary school teachers have commenced an indefinite, nationwide protest to force government to pay their December 2019 salaries, especially those who were removed from the payroll having failed to submit their National IDs.

Teachers Union of Malawi (TUM) saw about 5, 000 teachers removed from the payroll alongside other civil servants for not submitting details of their national identity cards.

“From today [Monday the 20th of January 2020] teachers and TTC lecturers will be gathering at their respective DCs [district commissioners] offices from 7am up to 4:30pm and this will be done up to the date they will get their salaries. In this case, they will not be delivering in schools and colleges,” Teachers Union of Malawi (TUM) secretary general Charles Kumchenga advised.
