Information sourced by FaceofMalawi indicates that public schools have defied Parliament motion by hiking the school fees as ordered by the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) regime under President Professor Arthur Peter Mutharika.
Parliament stopped government from hiking the school fees in Secondary schools effective January 4, 2016 through a private member motion moved by Malawi Congress Party (MCP) Member of Parliament for Salima Central Felix Jumbe.
Jumbe argued that the feels hike came at the wrong time and he asked the government it implement in future when the economy improves.
But information at hand states that most public schools have gone ahead hiking the school fees, arguing that there is no communication from government and Ministry of Education Science and Technology (MoEST) on the changes.
