Youth and Society (YAS) has threatened to drag President Lazarus Chakwera’s Tonse administration to court if it fails to resolve their difference with teachers union of Malawi (TUM).

Meanwhile, teachers in public primary, secondary and training colleges have vowed to continue with the stay away until government meets their demands.

YAS programs manager Amos Simwela disclosed the expansion during a press briefing held on Wednesday in Mzuzu.

According to Simwela, the stay away is affecting innocent children whose absolute right to education is provided for in the constitution of Malawi.

This has come to light as teachers are on a stay away strike asking government to cover them up with appropriate personal protective equipment in cash coasted package as a once off payment covering three months.
