Unions representing teachers have threatened to boycott all businesses which are owned by or linked to ruling Zanu-PF politicians accusing them of causing the suffering of people. Speaking to the Daily News, Progressive Teachers Union of Zimbabwe (PTUZ) secretary-general Raymond Majongwe said,
They are the authors of the problems we are facing because we know for certain that they are behind the illegal cash dealings in the country and by buying from their businesses we are perpetuating our suffering so it is time we consider boycotting those that we can easily identify…We continue to be given bond notes when their businesses are charging US dollars. We are consulting our membership to see how best we can take that action.
Zimbabwe Teachers’ Union (Zimta) president Sifiso Ndlovu said,

At the moment, we do not know who among the ruling elite owns what; so we want to establish that first because it could turn out that it is not only Zanu PF politicians…who are behind all this and we must take them head-on.
