Lectures at Polytechnic in Blantyre have called off an industrial strike and on Monday returned to classes after a month long fruitless sit in to force the government raise their salaries.
Polytechnic Students Union leader Frank Msiska confirmed that classes resumed on Monday after the fruitless strike that paralysed lessons at the University of Malawi second largest constituent college.
Government told the staff that it had no money to effect any pay rise as demanded by the lecturers.
The government is facing huge financial problems following the withdrawal of donor aid for the past three years among other key factors.
Representatives of the academic staff were not available for comment.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
