A report indicates that schools in Zimbabwe’s second largest city, Bulawayo opened today without any hiccups.
There was a concern by parents that schools may not open for the new term as teachers threatened a strike.
Parents who spoke to The Sunday News expressed satisfaction with the state of affairs at schools in Bulawayo. A parent who spoke to the publication, Mrs Linda Mariano whose daughter attends Coghlan Primary School said:
We took the children to school and all was well, we left them in the classes with their teachers and they did not say anything about striking. We do not know how the day progresses though but the children were in school.
Another parent who spoke to The Sunday News said:
We came with the little ones today because we were not sure if the rumours of teachers’ strike were true, so we had to make sure they are in class and settled.
We thought if we put them on public transport that carries them during the term and they get to school and there is a strike, they would then get confused on what to do.
