The Progressive Teachers Union of Zimbabwe is concerned with what it considers the harassment of teachers in Chimanimani and Chipinge districts bt the Public Service Commission (PSC).
PTUZ secretary general Raymond Majongwe said that the PSC has dispatched teams to the district, where they are demanding teachers to fill in forms indicating they were on strike in February. Said Majongwe:
Can someone tell me how the government, aware of devastation in this area, can dispatch PSC teams demanding teachers to fill in Forms indicating they were on strike in February? Teachers in Chimanimani and Chipinge are being harassed. But WHY???
The two Manicaland districts were ravaged by Tropical Cyclone Idai over the weekend. The cyclone destroyed roads, bridges and buildings, leaving hundreds of people feared dead.
St Charles Lwanga High School in Chimanimani was extensively damaged by rockfalls which killed a form 1 pupil and a security guard.
