Teachers in Malawi are urging the government to ensure invigilators and supervisors for the Malawi School Certificate of Education (MSCE) exams are paid upfront to avoid them boycotting invigilation. 

The MSCE examinations are expected to begin next Thursday.

The exam is the only assessment that accredits a certificate to successful students, following the phasing out of the JCE exams.

Charles Kumchenga is the Secretary General of the Teachers Union of Malawi (TUM) told Capital FM that the trend that’s been happening the past few years should not be repeated this year.

Kumchenga  suggests, Capital Hill start by paying the teachers, so that they don’t end up trading barbs months after waiting to be paid their allowances.

Commenting on the matter, Spokesperson for MANEB, Simeon Maganga, disclosed until official information is given MANEB cannot comment on the current invigilation matter.

According to Maganga, TUM has not yet informed the board on their threats to boycott invigilation; however they are aware that teachers are on strike.

Maganga added that they have challenges in paying invigilators because they usually source funds on their own.

“We are not a commercial entity, the fees we collect contributes to only 20% of our income and the rest is left to government to sort out, and government is already struggling on its own to source funds for other sectors,” Maganga explained

The spokesperson ended by pointing out that they cannot yet mention whether they will or will not be owing invigilators money after the exams.

As the board is putting the final touches on the exams; teachers in the country are on a national wide strike demanding the government to settle their outstanding leave grants.

Apart from that, they are also demanding that government increase their salaries claiming that they are unable to support themselves and their families with the little they get at the end of each month.
