The Unemployed Teachers Association (UTA) has appealed to Primary and Secondary Education minister Paul Mavima to make arrangements to export unemployed teachers to countries where their services are needed.
UTA wrote the letter to Mavima on Friday and accused Government officials of corruption saying those who graduated in 2018 are getting employed first before those who finished in 2014, 2015, 2016. Part of the letter to Mavima reads:
Since your office has failed to absorb all of these unemployed teachers and each and every year colleges are releasing as many graduates adding to the number (of unemployed teachers) why not consider exporting them on a government-to-government bilateral deal in which both governments together with the teacher will benefit? Countries like Botswana, Namibia and Mozambique are in need of qualified personnel if proper channels are followed. Unemployed teachers will be delighted with such a move.
