Joyce Banda’s austerity economic measures to affect rural teachers’ hardship allowance

BLANTYRE(MaraPost)—Some primary school teachers in the country will not be receiving their hardship allowances as Malawi government is operating on strict economic measures following the withhold of aid by the donors, Maravi Post has established.

Impeccable sources indicate that the ministry of education is deleting some schools on hardship allowance and the affected teachers will receive their last hardship allowance in the month of April.


School authorities in Blantyre rural confirmed the development.

“Yes, we are aware of that arrangement. We are told the ministry wants the hardship allowance to be given to teachers, who are teaching in very remote areas,” said one of the headmasters in Blantyre, Nankumba zone.

The development comes amid reports that government coffers are dry and that ministries have been ordered to adopt cost-cutting policy.

Meanwhile, President Joyce Banda has directed management of State House to stop procuring vehicles for Presidential Security despite the loss of three Hammers and three Land Rovers in view of the prevailing economic situation.
