A teacher who was the director of ceremonies at the VP’s nephew’s funeral this past weekend in Beitbridge drew both praise and sympathy from mourners as he knelt down to beg VP Mohadi to influence teachers’ pay hike, Newsday reports.
Poloko Malapela, a teacher at Dulivhadzimo Primary School, knelt down and presented his “passionate” plea to the VP by saying:
I have a request Vice-President Mohadi, I am going to kneel down to drive home this important message to you.
We are suffering and life has become hard and can you please put word for us so we can have a salary raise.
Mourners reportedly cheered as Malapela made this gesture. However, the VP at the same funeral had reportedly said a significant salary hike would result in inflation.
