Teachers Will Not Be Able To Report For Duty On Monday – ZIMTA

Zimbabwe Teachers Association ZIMTA has announced that teachers will not be able to report for duty next week on Monday the 28th when public schools reopen, ZimLive reports.

ZIMTA released a statement on the matter and said:

After a wide consultation of all our 42,000 members, the ZIMTA national executive hereby declares that educators will not be able to report for duty on September 28 2020, for the opening of schools as they are incapacitated

Teachers have constantly said inflation has risen to 761% but their salaries have not been reviewed upwards and they are still earning anything between $35 and $70 a month. Teachers have repeatedly called the government to give them a salary equivalent to the salaries they were earning in October 2018 which is equivalent to $520.

  1. Its so pathetic that a teacher who is supposed to inspire a pupil and convince them that education is a key to good life goes to school wearing rags and tatters on an empty stomach and cannot afford school fees for his own children with this paltry US30 dollars which is even less than what a housegirl is getting. Our leaders are not showing any empathy at all. When these teachers declare incapacitation, which is written in black and white for the whole world to see, they labelled as regime change agents. Gvt we beg u to have sympathy for these poor souls, they szcrificed a lot to be part of this once noble proffesion.
