Money silences teachers, TUM cancels sit-in

34

Teachers Union of Malawi (TUM) says it has cancelled a sit-in which the teachers planned to hold on 18 October this month.

This is coming as government has allocated funds to Malawi National Examinations Board (MANEB) to pay the teachers who invigilated this year’s Malawi School Certificate of Education exams.

Kalekeni: Sit in canceled.

General Secretary for TUM Dennis Kalekeni said they are happy that government has now funded the examinations body so that the teachers should in turn get their money.

“We planned to conduct a sit-in on 18 October this year because of failure by MANEB to pay invigilators who supervised this year’s Malawi School Certificate of Education examinations,” said Kalekeni.

He added that the treasury has now fully funded MANEB to pay the invigilators and supervisors hence the cancelling of the sit-in.

Kalekeni further said that MANEB has assured them that by the end of this week all invigilators and supervisors will receive their allowances.

But he claimed that they are still on government’s neck on the issues it has not resolved as some teachers have not received their arrears. Apart from the arrears, the teachers also want government to provide transport and allowances for teachers who were promoted and posted to schools in rural areas.

Hello friends my name is Zeida Mohammad I was one of those millions of people around the world suffering from HIV/AIDS and and i was healed through the help of DR Abumen I was diagnosed with HIV/AIDS in 2006, I had no hope and felt useless. All these negative feelings quickly suppressed my body immune system and my body started to deteriorate quickly with physical signs of rapid weight loss, my story began to change for good when i met DR Abumen through a woman’s testimony, he sent me an herbal medicine which i took for some days, after taking the medicine according to doctor’s instruction I went to the hospital to get my blood tested for HIV/AIDS. The doctors were amazed when my first blood test result came back negative. They asked me to go back again for another test, which I did and the result came back negative. The doctors could not believe still,To cut the story short, “DR ABUMEN HERBAL MEDICINE HEALED ME COMPLETELY WITHOUT A TRACE OF THE DEADLY HIV/AIDS VIRUS IN MY BLOOD” am so happy, am sharing this to the world to save some lives, believe me there is a cure, you can contact DR Abumen on his email address doctorabumen@gmail.com and you can also call or whatsapp his number which is via +2347085071418.

Ntchito yathuyi sikuti ambirife tinailowa chifukwa choti tinasowa chochita china padziko lapansi.Yesu khristu ali padziko lapansili ophunzira ake anali kumuitana kuti “Rabi”,ndiko kuti mphuzitsi.Chotero kwa enafe ndi chisankho chomwe tinapanga ndipo ndi utumiki monga Khristu anachitira.Ndizonvetsa chisoni kuti mumatinyoza ndi kutizunza mu njira zosiyanasiyana.Mukatha kutinyoza mumatitumizira ana anu kuti tidzawagaire nzeru za kupusa kwathu kuja!Kumbukirani kuti tsogolo la maphunziro a wana anu liri m’manja mwa mphuzitsi.Tiganizireni! Ana atinvera bwanji pomwe tikuwaphunzitsa nsaza ziri wirawira.Olo ulemu sangatipatse nanga si amayamba kunvera kwainu mukamatinyoza.
