The Zimbabwe Teachers’ Association (ZIMTA) has asked the Government to address the USD salaries issue before the first school term of 2019 starts.
Said, Zimta secretary-general Tapson Nganunu Sibanda yesterday:
We are concerned because there is no progress in terms of the request we made to the Government. We thought the Government was going to call us for a meeting and address this issue. We are behind time and the silence might affect opening of schools. Our members are agitated and they want the Government to pay their salaries in foreign currency. The cost of living has increased and civil servants’ salaries have lost value three fold in 2018. We therefore want salaries to be paid in foreign currency considering that most service providers now prefer payment for services in foreign currency.
