Teachers Write To Mnangagwa Over Discrimination After Soldiers Get Higher Salary Hike

The Progressive Teachers Union of Zimbabwe ( PTUZ) has written to President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s office to register their concern with the apparent discrimination which took place regarding salary hikes. The Zimbabwe Defence Forces were awarded a 22.5 percent increment, the Zimbabwe Republic Police was awarded a 20 percent increment while the teachers were awarded a 17.5 percent increment. Speaking to NewsDay, PTUZ secretary general Raymond Majongwe said

We are very disappointed at what has happened because it is unfair that they have created a three-tier government where they chose soldiers and the police and treated other civil servants like teachers as the least of all. Teachers were only given 17% while others were given 22%, but I am not saying that soldiers do not deserve 22% — in fact, they deserve more given their living conditions. What I am against is the discrimination…We know that this package to soldiers and police is meant to send a certain signal. The problem is that we are dealing with a government which is trying to campaign and on the other hand to stabilise things.
