Rural school teachers recently resolved to march from Mutare to Harare, a distance of 275km in protest to demand their salaries in United States dollars.
A report indicates that a group of 102 protestors have so far walked 50km of their journey. They are scheduled to arrive in Harare on December 19 and will camp at the Ministry of Finance offices until their demands are met.

Amalgamated Teachers Union of Zimbabwe (ARTUZ) president Obert Masaraure said
We left Mutare at 1000 hours with 102 teachers but about 95 managed to complete the first and second laps of our journey with seven being ferried to complete it.
Everyone, however, remains committed to the march and we’re confident that we will complete the journey in the scheduled 10 days. We will be camping on or close to business centres for the sake of our security.
