Concurring with Panjwani sentiments, Madalitso Brown Chimbia of Chilobwe Township said the economy is not doing well because private school teachers are not getting their salaries after closure of schools due to pandemic.

“Government should use strategies such as re-opening schools and put control measures like distributing free masks and sanitizers to pupils and students,” he said.
