Students from Chancellor College can afford a smile as government has announced that the lecturers’ strike which led to closure of the college has been resolved.
The future of sitting in class soon was covered with mist as Chancellor College academic staff and the then council of University of Malawi (UNIMA) tussled on salary issue.
The development forced many learners at Chanco to have a long holiday as lecturers opted to strike until the demand was meet.
But minister of education, science and technology Emmanuel Fabiano disclosed that through a meeting held on Tuesday in Zomba at Chawe, the wrangle between teachers and management has been resolved.
“Chancellor College management will make a statement in the next days on the opening of the college,” said Fabiano in a statement.
The closure of the college created wide gap of concerns from various education stakeholders who demanded the opening of the college.
The wrangle of salary inequality among UNIMA staff witnessed President Peter Mutharika dissolving the council.
