The Amalgamated Rural Teachers Union of Zimbabwe (Artuz) has called on President Emmerson Mnangagwa to put a stop to Zanu-PF’s alleged tactics of making school children attend rallies in order to boost the size of the crowd. The group also said that teachers were being forced to attend rallies. In a statement, Artuz said,
This flies in the face of the recommendations in the Investigative Report by Zimbabwe Human Rights Commission (Zhrc). Artuz condemns in strongest terms the repetitive use of Mugabe’s tactics by President Mnangagwa and Zanu PF and calls upon (the) government to implement the recommendations by the Commission or face legal action in the highest courts of the land. Education is a fundamental right and that right must be respected.
