The delay by Malawi National Examination Board (MANEB) to pay invigilators of Malawi School Certificate of Education (MSCE) examination has angered the teachers’ mother body Teachers Union of Malawi (TUM).
TUM general secretary Charles Kumchenga has argued that the delay affects the teachers who worked for the invigilation of national exams in Malawi.
Kumchenga added that MANEB should have considered paying the teachers soon arguing the cost from the abolished Junior Certificate of Examination (JCE) should have been used to pay the teachers at a good time.
MANEB spokesperson Simeon Maganga disclosed that teachers are to be paid once treasury pays the board to settle the invigilation allowances for teachers.
K1.4 billion is to be shared among teachers who worked for the invigilation of MSCE in the country.
Last year, teachers were on MANEB’s neck over unpaid invigilation allowances for the 2016 national exams.
