Former teachers in Chipata have appealed to government to raise their monthly retirement allowance.
The retirees say that the 200 kwacha, which they are currently getting, is too little to help sustain their lives.
This came to light during the launch of an association for retired teachers in Chipata yesterday.
A member of the association, Tobias Mvula described the 200 kwacha given by government to retired teachers as mere change to other people.
Mr. Mvula stated that government should consider increasing the amount because a teacher is the one who has produced all the important people the world is celebrating.
