Over 400 unrecruited secondary school teachers have threatened a protest march in the capital, Lilongwe unless the government employs them.
Deputy leader of the group, Edward Patrick said some of the members graduated two years ago but the government seems not interested to recruit them.
“Some of our members were at Domasi Collge, others at Chancellor College and Polytechnic all of us with degrees,” Patrick.
Ministry of Education spokesperson Manfred Ndovie confirmed there is a group of 400 secondary school teachers who are yet to be employed by the government.
“We are talking to ministry of Finance on the issue because we don’t want to employ them then we fail to pay them,” said Ndovie.
He was optimist the secondary school teachers would soon be employed and beef up staff at public secondary schools.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
