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.
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.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
