The Weekend Nation reported that the school’s head-teacher, Nellie Mkumba, said the teacher has been living in the sanitary facility since he got transferred from Kapeni Demonstration School, Blantyre.

But the paper shielded the teacher’s name.

“This school was established in 1960. But it appears government, at the time, overlooked the issue of teachers’ houses. And so, it has remained like that to date,” the head-teacher was quoted saying.

Ministry of Education public relations officer, Mafred Ndovi expressed ignorance about the predicament of the teacher but indicated that they are working on the matter.

“The ministry didn’t receive a provision for the construction of teachers’ houses in the current budget. So, chances that teachers’ houses may be constructed at the school are remote. Maybe in the next financial year.”

The paper reported that the teacher has since surrendered all his personal effects to friends and well-wishers for safe keeping while looking for a house to let.

Mbyofo mbyofo Pitala is wasting time sign some graffiti in Lumbadzi corner and painting filthy corner in police cells while teachers are sleeping toilets.All those allowances would have built a modest house for such a poor soul in such an unappreciated profession.Shame indeed.
