Admarc guard shoots learners as teachers strike protests go nasty

A security guard for state produce Admarc  has shot three learners at Mponela in Dowa as the learners, joined by other people at the trading centre, went on looting spree as the teachers strike entered day three.
Eyewitnesses said the learners looted shoes from Bats shoe shop, Airtel shop and went to Admarc to loot bags of maize when an armed guard opened fire.
The wounded learners were rushed to Dowa district hospital.
The learners also smashed private vehicles with stones as they joined their teachers in a march to show displeasure over the government decision not to pay some teachers their December salary.
The nation-wide teachers’ sit-in has entered day three today after government failed to pay all concerned teachers their December salaries by Tuesday.
Secretary General of the union, Charles Kumchenga, that there has not been any movement in the teachers’ bank accounts as earlier pledged by government.
In Mzuzu, the situation was the same as learners turned violent.
Police were called in and managed to put the situation under control after teargassing the learners to disperse them.
