Joseph Patel: Need to investigate

President of Isama Joseph Patel said in Blantyre during the launch of a quiz competition organised by the association that Education ministry officials were demanding money from private school owners who did not have licence to operate their institutions in the country.

“This is very bad because it has potential of bringing down education standards in the country,” said the long serving Isama president.

Ministry of Education officials make sporadic checks on private schools to ensure that they conform to laid down procedures set by the government as minimum standards for the operational of schools in Malawi.

Patel did not however say whether he was taking up the matter with the graft busting body, the Anti Corruption Bureau or not.

Ministry of Education officials have however promised to investigate the matter.

Yeah, the Ministry will investigate the matter. They are lying, they know it, no service in government is free, you pay the prescribed fees and the officers take. Otherwise printers perpetually have no toner nor paper.
