Malawi trainee teachers go five months without pay

About 700 trainee teachers deployed to various districts nationwide from Lilongwe Teachers Training College (LTTC) under the Open Distance Learning (ODL) and Initial Primary Teacher Education (IPTE) programmes have gone five months without pay.

Msowoya: Treasury not aware

Msowoya: Treasury not aware

Spokesperson Manfred Ndovi attributed the situation to erratic funding to LTTC and says things will be normal soon.

Ndovi pointed out that it is most likely that they will get their full dues this month end.

However, the Ministry of Finance has said that it is not aware of the situation.

Ministry of Finance spokesperson Nations Msowoya said Treasury is yet to be informed about the situation.

The trainees are in Salima, Mangochi, Mchinji and Lilongwe districts and were deployed last September.

    Ministry of finance you are big crooks, are you not aware that these teachers were at TTC after that need pay, such excuses are foolish. This is the fourth month teaching without pay,am just coming from college, you gave us the same, you are not aware. Tell us the truth, that you don’t have money. Stop torturing teachers please, for you to be you today ,its a teacher.
