Chancellor College re-opens

Chancellor College students have expressed happiness with the re-opening progress of the institution as orientation started on Monday.

Speaking to Radio Islam president of the Students Union Sylvester Ayuba James said many students are at the campus and lecturers are showing commitment in their work.

“We expect the remaining students to come to the college next week as the new semester has started,” James said.

Government announced in June the re-opening of Chancellor College after mediating the discussions between staff union and university of Malawi council to resolve the conflict over salary disparity.

Lecturers at Chancellor college started boycotting work to force government increase their salary by 40 percent which their colleagues at college of medicine receive.

However, government says lecturers at Chancellor college get the money because they help at the referral hospital, Queen Elizabeth central.

Chancellor college failed to re-open on 20 March 2017 forcing students to return home.

After many months of Chanco closure President Professor Peter Mutharika dissolved University of Malawi Council.

Few days later he appointed a new council.

After resolving pay disparity conflict support staff at Chancellor college threatened to boycott work.
