Progressive Teachers Union of Zimbabwe (PTUZ) secretary-general Raymond Majongwe has complained about the low wages which teachers are getting. Majongwe accused President Emmerson Mnangagwa of disregarding their issues saying that he chose to listen to the wrong people. Speaking to the Daily News, Majongwe said,
When will ED listen? They lie to us that they are a ‘listening government’. If they cannot hear these constructive voices, what then should we do?
Today…. we are getting paid peanuts because they listened to their compromised, moribund and out of depth Apex Council. Nurses are still smiling their way to the banks while we wallow in abject poverty. Surely, teachers have suffered enough. We are told of open door policies, which in reality are closed to some of us, which is sad. We also note again that the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission wants to disenfranchise several teachers by sending them on election jobs outside the wards they are registered to vote. We are seriously worried by this.
