Private school teachers in the country are repeating their call for the government to institute cushioning measures for them following failure by school owners to pay them their salaries.
The teachers have gone unpaid since learning institutions were closed in March.
Private school owners have been pressing authorities to consider reopening the schools with strict measures, as a way of bailing out the concerned teachers who are struggling to meet basic needs.
The former president of Malawi, Peter Mutharika declared closure of the schools in the country to prevent the spread of Covid-19 that has engulfed lives of many people across globe.
Since then, the independent schools have been fighting for reopening of schools as they are not making money because the parents of the students stoped paying school fees for the students.
A Task force on reopening of schools suggested that schools should be open again on 13 July but due increase in the number of Covid-19 cases, the decision was puty on hold.
