St. Michael’s girls’ secondary school closed indefinitely

Authorities at St. Michael’s Girls Secondary School have closed the school indefinitely following a protest by the students.

The students were on Tuesday morning forced to leave the school and go to their homes after vandalizing school property in protest of poor diet.

By 11 am on Tuesday, hordes of students were seen leaving the school premises, carrying their bags.

It is reported that the students damaged the school property on Sunday evening.

It took the law-enforcers to intervene by firing teargas to disperse the rioting students and restore peace at the school.Confirming the development, Mangochi Police Station spokesperson, Rodrick Maida said they intervened to quell the situation after the students went on a rampage.
“It is true, we went there to restore peace but for what happened you can ask the school’s management,” he said.
But according to one of the teachers who opted for anonymity for fear of reprisal, the students went amok in protest of the poor diet.

“The students have been complaining of poor diet – nsima with beans and vegetables mostly; but there has never been any improvement,” said the teacher.

However, when contacted, headteacher for the school, Rose Chikhambi confirmed the closure of the school but refused to comment further.

Your line of thinking is very backward. Mtima umeneyu osamadandaula or kunena zimene sizili bwino powopa kuti zikuyipila ndi umene wabwezeretsa Malawi m’buyo becoz the leaders /administrators take advantage of your mantha nkumapanga zimene akufuna kumasokoneza ma process or their responsibilities. The school should have addressed the students’ grievances either changing the diet or explaining to the students the challenges the school is facing. Do not opress people becoz alibe kwina kolowera or chochita. Your thinking shows that you are in your late 40s or in your 50s. Anthu inu ndiamene mwaononga Malawi . Anthu amantha , odziwa kupilira (opressed)… Read more »

Generalizing issues is wrong. Not everybody in 40s and 50s think the same. Here you are insulting your parents too unless they are below 30s. You are the one with backward thinking though young. Idiot
