Mangochi 11 Suspended Teachers Cleared
The Mangochi District Council has cleared 11 primary teachers out of 20 who were on suspension due to various misconducts.
District Chief Education Officer, Labson Kawalala, has told us Thursday, the 11 who are now back in their duty station were those that came for disciplinary action.
Kawalala said the other 9 are still suspended as they are yet to appear before the disciplinary committee over a month after being summoned and have since been removed from the payroll.
