Teachers Yet To Receive December Salaries
A month after staging nationwide demonstrations to force government pay salaries to teachers missed on December 2019 payroll, some affected teachers are yet to receive the said salaries.
Teachers Union of Malawi (TUM) through its General Secretary Charles Kumchenga, has acknowledged this.
“The Department of Human Resources and Management treat some bona fide teachers as ghost workers because their names are found on payrolls in districts where they are not working,” he said.
“As I am talking to you now, am coming from the Office of Accountant General where we were discussing the same issue and currently directors of education in all councils are compiling data of affected teachers to be submitted to the Office,” said Kumchenga.
