The Presidential Taskforce on Covid-19 has rejected a request by the Teachers Union Of Malawi (TUM) to give teachers risk allowances.
Minister of Education Agness NyaLonje has told Parliament that the Taskforce came up with the decision today and the same has been communicated to TUM.
NyaLonje said the Taskforce believes it is not appropriate to give teachers the allowances this time around.
Teachers in public schools across the country are on strike demanding risk allowances from Tonse Alliance government.
The development has affected the reopening of schools in the country.
