The Civil Service Commission has given the Primary And Secondary Education Ministry the green light to employ more teachers and further equip Zimbabwean schools with more manpower, Sunday News reports.
Confirming the development, the Education Minister Cain Mathema said:
We were recently granted authority to hire 5 000 teachers for the 2020 financial year. We are grateful that President Emmerson Mnangagwa allowed us to employ the teachers during such economic times. “We have, as one ministry created 5 000 jobs which is impressive.
We have a high unemployment rate and we are making efforts to reduce that by employing more of our professionals who were out of the system due to budgetary constraints. These 5 000 teachers will surely aid the sector in a huge way through an improved service delivery
The ministry’s teacher deficiet now stands at 10000.
