At last: Malawi Govt to employ teachers

89

Their hopes of getting employed by government were shattered and many qualified teachers migrated to South Africa, but those who waited can afford a smile as Ministry of Education, Science and Technology has disclosed that all is set to have the teachers posted for work.

Speaking at a presser in Lilongwe on Saturday, minister responsible Emmanuel Fabiano disclosed that government plans to recruit graduate teachers in the country.

Junior Certificate of Education

Emmanuel Fabiano says Govt set to recruit the teachers.

The minister added that graduate teachers must go and check their names at district education offices in their areas and signing for the offer letters is from June to July.

He added further that the newly recruited teachers are not allowed to request for transfers arguing this will compromise efforts of reducing workload on some teachers in rural set up of the country.

Government was reported to have been shunning employing teachers in the country arguing the country’s economic status could not have allowed recruitment.

The development witnessed Teachers Union of Malawi (TUM) faulting government for not employing teachers amid reports of shortage of teachers in Malawi.

Concurring with TUM, various education stockholders blamed government over the development arguing it was a waste of resources training the teachers without giving them jobs.

The delay witnessed many qualified teachers going to South Africa for jobs for their survival.

  2. AT LAST, I RECEIVE THE NEWS WITH JOY, FOR THIS IS WHAT I HAVE BEEN SHOUTING FOR HERE AT MALAWI24 SOCIAL-MEDIA!! I, SINCERELY & HONESTLY THANK U FOR BEING A LISTENING GOVERNMENT IN A DEMOCRATIC MALAWI!!! THE REV. CHALU CHIBISA BANDA.

  3. Its good to see that not all migrated to other countries for green pastures and its good as well to see that gorvenment want to employ a lot of teachers but I think its for best if govt build good xools and make a plan to pay them on time.Quality z needed most than quantity

  4. For sure there are many well educated pole abroad. Eg RSA general worker minimum paid 4,500za = 225,000 average rate. Compared to 80,000mk sometime they say the government is broke. Its a sacrifice to leave family, friend,home, and have lot of challenge s eg xenophobia, robbery. Its not like people enjoy going abroad but the situation is worse in Malawi

    • MY DEAR BROTHER! YOUR COMPARISON IS QUITE GOOD IF U KNEW THE ECONOMY OF MALAWI COMPARED TO MINERALISED RSA!! RIGHT TAKE MALAWI’S GDP TO RSA’S GDP, THEN THE ANS IS WITH MY FELLOW MALAWIAN BROTHER!!!

    • I agree with GDP comparison. SA is better than us but the little we have must be used wisely. You find out finance is used on unnecessary things whereby we have stuck of better issues to be solved. If you are happy don’t promise. As a parent I can go buy newspaper of watch soccer match when my kids and wife sleep empty stomach. Its an example. If I have to tell my kid that I don’t have money they will not understand because I am coming from soccer match and I have newspaper in my hand. Yes every house have problem but ours have gone too far. Donors are pumping in cash and we don’t see change and the situation is getting worse. Come campaign the money will be scattered

    • Victor Nyande I understood very well that we can’t compare these two countries simple because SA has lot of natural resources like gold nickel, platinum, diamond etc but if you read my comment say. Yes at our level of poor. Things must be done in a transparent way and honest. How can you build stadiums when teachers are not paid. What am saying is we need stadiums and good things but let’s not forget important things like education, health facilities, and food the rest will follow

  5. The doors and windows of employment by the largest employer in Malawi are slowly and confidently opening up. I said it in my last contributions on fb that as we are nearing elections, the DPP led govt will employ cabinet ministers, directors, DCs, agriculture exparts, teachers, nurses, doctors, HSAs, drivers(enmasse). Job creation. Now have you heard what someone has announced? All those who will land a job will rejoice and praise the APM administration. Come elections…. Pure bribery and corruption of highest nature. Fool few but not all.

    • My brother, these teachers we are talking about were already trained by the govt. It’s not like they gonna put an advert in the Daily Times inviting application. At all cost akanalembedwabe ntchito, kusatengera kuti boma lilipo ndi liti.

    • Jose, to be trained by govt doesn’t mean teachers are all to be employed by govt. After training, some can get jobs in private schools if possible. The govt suppose has no vacancies, obviously people will demand necks of those in power. Which to me is a bit awkward. The norm in Malawi needs thorough scrutiny as this will leave potholes in the system. The introduction of free primary school education in 1994, saw 22,000 people employed as temporary teachers. Circumstances forced Bakili regime do just that. Basically, politics my brother Jose is playing its role without considering the violation of human rights one is supposed to possess.

  6. You can’t feed yo children with promises, if you believe in promises wait for the govt. But if you think of yo future & yo future generation just find what you can be helped rather than waiting yo time with yo govt
