Students at Polytechnic College in Blantyre have written an open letter demanding a quick solution to the dispute between lectures and management over pay that has stalled learning for two weeks now.
In the letter, student representative Frank Msiska says the strike is negatively affecting the students in their quest for education.
He asks the lectures and management to come to an amicable solution as soon as possible so that classes can resume.
The lectures downed tools demanding a 30 per cent pay hike but the government has said it has no money for any pay hike owing to the current poor economic situation.
The government gave the lectures up to Thursday, March 31 to return to work but as of Friday, April 1 they had not yet returned to work.
Malawi is facing severe economic challenges with the government drastically cutting down on budgets of ministries and departments and Malawians finding it difficult to survive because of high cost of living due to high inflation and interest rates.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
