Teachers Required To Know 3 Local Languages- Govt

The Primary and Secondary Education ministry has said primary school teachers must be fluent in at least three indigenous languages by the time they finish their training for them to be employable.

This was said by  ministry secretary Tumisang Thabela in a speech read on her behalf by principal director of curriculum development and technical devices John Dewah. Speaking at a belated International Mother’s Language Day (IMLD) commemoration at the University of Zimbabwe on Friday last week, Dhehwa said:

Since learners are supposed to learn in their mother’s language in the first four years of their education, the ministry requires a trained primary school teacher to know at least three indigenous languages because that will be the medium of instruction … from the 16 official languages it is possible.

Progressive Teachers’ Union of Zimbabwe secretary-general Raymond Majongwe said Government was trying to solve a problem without involving all stakeholders.
