‘Teachers faced so many problems in 2015’

52

Teachers Union of Malawi (TUM) has described the year 2015 as a year of challenges as regards to teachers’ welfare in the country.

TUM general secretary Denis Kalekeni was responding to questions on how his organisation fared this year.

Dennis-Kalekeni

Kalekeni: We had very big problems.

Kalekeni stated that it is important that education should be recognised as a key to success and that teachers play a big role in the process.

According to Kalekeni, teachers faced a lot of challenges in creating a good environment for education.

He said that no single teacher was promoted during the year 2015 and he also cited government’s failure to recruit 20,000 teachers who finished teacher’s training in the year as a challenge for the education sector.

Kalekeni however explained that the year 2015 was successful in terms of payment of teacher’s salaries.

TUM has since said that they will be looking forward to government’s assistance in the coming year.

Aphuzitsi muli ndi vuto nokha mmalo moti muzigwirizana kuti mupange strike ena muva ndidabwera ndekha nchifukwa boma limakupezererani azanu nurses akangoti strike boma limanjenjemera inu panokha mayeso ana sangalembe mutafuna mpaka boma litakoza zofuna koma kusagwirizana TUM muchedwa nayo mphavu zikhale mumngwilizano wanu kupanda kutero aphuzitsi mukhala mukubuula mpaka pension

  2. Only senseless points….TUM?which year are you going to employ these 20000 skillful young Teachers?tizidikirabe mpaka liti?speak out for us,what are your roles?….aaaaaaaa akulu akulu inu..

  3. Even arrears are not being paid,What role r u playimg as Tum?Imagine some pple were promoted in 2010 but up to now no arrears.Do u expect such aperson to work effectively? I doubt.

  4. Don’t say they had problems this year,every year they are struggling considering how much they are earning its sad they are not even able to access loans from the banks despite the precious tasks

  5. Tum is a passive organisation and not militant at all.3year cohorts of primary and sec teachrs have finishd studies and are at home yet Tum claims it fights for teachrs

  6. usandiyankhulise pambali kalekeni.newly qualified teachers are suffering in the villages like they had never been to school.iwee!

  7. A TUM you are assisting teachers. For example Govt lied that the treasury had released the funds for newly graduated teachers from TCC but up to now no one has been recruited and the union is just quiet. Look at nurses and doctors they made noises and newly graduated doctors and nurses are assured of employment. Do something for these young teachers please

  8. Zimakhala zachison mphuzisi wa kumalawi kuzuzika osampasa malipiro pomwe iwowo ophuzisidwa ndi phunzisiyo.maiko ena amalemekeza mphuzisi.s.africa 3qotaz maphuzisi amayendera galimoto.kumalawi ntchito kuba basi m’boma.sinthani chaka chikubwerachi.alemekezeni maphuzisi.

  9. So it means TUM knew all these problems and did nothing?What have you decided to do in the new yr?All you know is deducting our monthly contribution.Kenaka titengeranatu pa court coz the fact that one is a teacher doesnt mean automatic membership of TUM.Sindikukhulupilira kuti ndizokakamizana

  10. Munthu amene amaponderezedwa patchito kumalawi ndi mphunzitsi,malipiro otsika kuchedwanso kuwalipila nyumba zokhala kusowanso. akuluakulu aboma amayiwala kut zimimba zomwe akutulukazo kamba kantchito yamphunzitsi. plz apasen aphunzitsi zinthu zofunikira kut nawonso amve kukoma
