PTUZ To Investigate Reports Of Discrimination By PSC

The Progressive Teachers’ Union of Zimbabwe (PTUZ) says it is unnerved by reports from the Matabeleland North and South provinces as well as Bulawayo that local teachers who are conversant with local languages are being sidelined.

In a statement posted on Twitter, PTUZ secretary general Raymond Majongwe said:

The PTUZ has received a massive outcry from Mat North Mat South and Bulawayo over the list of teachers recruited by the PSC. It has been noted that locals conversant with local languages were not considered. We will investigate this observation.

There have been complaints in recent years from minority Ndebele-speakers that the Matabeleland region is being marginalised in national programs.

The perceived marginalisation has spurred the rise of secessionist political parties such as the Mthwakazi Liberation Party among others.
