Maranatha Schools Managing Director, Ernest Kaonga disclosed the development during press briefing held on Monday in Blantyre.

Kaonga stated that the initiative will minimize the damage that may come as a result of learners just staying at home for the whole period.

He further said that the technology has already been sampled and upon enrollment students will be accessing all their virtual classes through computers and mobile phones.

In order to accommodate many students tuition fee has been slashed from 30 thousand to 15 thousand kwacha.

President Professor Arthur Peter Mutharika declared Covid-19 a State of Disaster- a development in which we saw the closure of both public and private schools across the country.  

Recently, Minister of Education, Science and Technology William Susuwele Banda said the school will remain closed until schools will be declared safe from coronavirus.
