BLANTYRE--Lecturers at Mzuzu University (Mzuni) have once again expressed disappointment with the government for offering 25 percent increment to the University of Malawi (Unima) lecturers.
Mzuni lecturers had earlier demanded over 75 percent increment but reached a consensus with government and settled for 21 percent, the same amount given to civil servants.
Unima lecturers got a 25 percent increment after pushing for a 113 percent increment.
Mzuni Academic Staff Union Vice Chairperson, Misheck Banda, said the lecturers would meet this Friday to plan their next move.
Banda said the government should have given them 25 percent as well, arguing that both are public institutions.
Meanwhile Unima lectures have since returned to work weeks after they walked out of class. Banda said at Mzuni staff will not disturb the academic calendar.
