Teachers’ impasse too complex – State House

The ongoing impasse between the teachers  and the government on risk allowances is too complex, Brian Banda, President Lazarus Chakwera’s spokesperson has said.

Kampondeni: The President is always in contact and dialogue with stakeholders 

Answering a question from a Nyasa Times journalist, during a State House virtual press briefing, on what the president is doing to resolve the matter considering that the biggest losers in these squabbles are the school-going children, the presidential Press Secretary said:

“President Chakwera believes in contact and dialogue. However, the issue between teachers and government is too complex and deeper.”

Banda explained that president Chakwera always believes in contact and dialogue whenever there is a need to address issues of the national interest.

“President Chakwera is a listening president and he believes solving problems in an amicable way with both parties satisfied hence his continuous meeting with Tonse alliance partners and other stakeholders including TUM leadership,” said Banda.

Speaking earlier, State House Communications director, Sean Kampondeni, who is also the president’s executive assistant emphasised on Chakwera’s commitment on contact and dialogue.

Said Kampondeni: “The President is always in contact and dialogue with stakeholders because he believes in it as one way of serving the people well.”

Dishing out updates on president Chakwera’s engagements in the week, Kampondeni revealed that President Chakwera is scheduled to meet one of his Tonse alliance partners, former president, Joyce Banda of PP,  Minister of agriculture, Lobin Lowe; Minister of Civic Education and National Unity, Timothy Mtambo and the former president of Nigeria, Chief Olusegun Matthew Okikiola Obasanjo among other diginitaries.

“As a servant leader, President Chakwera listens to what people want and is open to diverse ideas that could help in nation-building and national development,” said Kampondeni.

The State House communications boss further informed the nation that the president will hold a meeting with Malawi University of Science and Technology (MUST) board ahead of the institution’s graduation, which President Chakwera is expected to preside over.

Chikakhala Kwa Mnzako chigwire nyanga. You rightly ridiculed APM for failing to resolve the academic freedom saga. This is a straightforward issue. Give the teachers their allowances!

You people you were laughing at A{PM on the chanco impasse which was more complex and yet you are failing to sort out a simple issue of allowances. To get money just take all the money that you pay for fuel allowances for ministers and advisors because these days of covid they are not supposed to be travelling around. Also stop the stupid recruitment of unqualified people like Bandulo into the civil service who are just mere liabilities. Stop the stupid foreign trips. if all this is done money to pay teachers will be identified. By the way I said… Read more »

All tbose tbinking the issue isnt complex in nature must go and sleep. Covid 19 started while DPP was leading this nation It never even made a single commwnt as regards to teachers risk allowance Today u see mwanamveka kufuna kuona ma wanzeru and these other cadets present here sounding knowledgeable on issues of governance yet it failed them. He who sends Malimba after DPP and Malimba himself will fail Their agenda is known big time and the space between must clearly be informative in nature Not every teacher is siding with them They must know TUM themselves that the… Read more »

What is so complex with teachers demand for allowances? If you think there are evil motives why not go to the root cause and uproot it. Muvi woyanganira ymalowa mmaso. Kalikokha mkanyama tili tiwiri mtianthu.Poti akakhala pa mkhate sapheka.Ukaputa mavu nkhomola liyatse liwiro la mtondo wadooka.

This tiny matter dubbed ‘Too complex & deep’ wat a shame to this banana government! Really? I already got risk allowance long back when COVID just began, now 1 year on important government employees as teacher’s not considered? Yet on record mwaba kale ma hundreds of millions a COVID and the dunderhead president tried to sweet coat it after media alarm,others being paid for millions to foot personal hospitals bills abroad. Thus exactly the making of banana government in banana Republic voted by bananas

paja amakonda anthu opuma. He has been recalling retired civil servants and he is meeting retired president and he is also a retired reverend. Awa satithandiza. He went to Tanzania to praise the dead instead of working for the improvement of life of Malawians. The only thing he has done is to find jobs at state house for his unemployable inlaws like Kampondeni, Ludo Nkukupa and others. Izi ndiye titaya nazo nthawi. Awa alingati driver wodziwa njila koma kumasochera.
