Maneb fires MSCE invigilators

Examination administrators, the Malawi National Examination Board (Maneb) has cut the number of invigilators for the ongoing Malawi School Certificate of Education.

Simeone Maganga: Number was bloated

Maneb spokesperson Simeon Maganga said the decision was arrived at after noting that the number of the teachers who were invigilating the examination was bloated.

“There was an over allocation of the teachers in some centres. They told us they needed 10 invigilators when actually all candidates were in one hall so there were 11 invigilators for one room, that is the waste of money,” said Maganga.

One of the teachers who has been fired said they were only told on Sunday to leave their duty stations of examinations.

The MSCE examinations are supposed to end on July 17, 2017.

MANEB is a thief. You have not paid teachers who invigilated minor subjects in the 2016 JCE. You underpaid teachers in 2016 JCE by having them book sleeping facilities (by virtue of posting them far away from their duty stations-I am one of them) and yet you compensated them for lunch. 2014 MSCE supplementary invigilators have not been paid. Thieves MANEB, unprofessional, untrustworthy. Very dull! Very inconsiderate.

The word ‘firing’ sounds too strong. Maybe ‘trims, reduces the number of invigilators would be appropriate.

Nanga ndi kadya nchiani ndinawerengera? This happens during elections also. You are supposed to physically tell the exact number of officers needed for the work in the classroom than 10. Since she/he has worked you will still pay them. Next time put good restriction.
