Govt Recruits Nearly 4 000 More Teachers

The government has recruited an additional 3 816 teachers as it implements measures to reduce class sizes in compliance with COVID-19 mitigation regulations.

The Ministry of Primary and Secondary Education requires at least 40 000 more teachers to address the critical manpower deficit in the education sector, with an estimated 15 000 trained teachers jobless.

In a statement, Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Primary and Secondary Education, Tumisang Thabela listed the names of the recruited teachers including their stations. She said:

This serves to inform the individuals listed that you have been appointed by the Public Service Commission to serve as teachers in the Ministry of Primary and Secondary Education.

You are advised to report to the indicated district offices as soon as possible for deployment.

Thabela also warned teachers who falsified their year of completion from college that they would face the consequences of such dishonest behaviour.

Schools reopened on Monday for examination classes with the rest of the learners returning to class on 6 September.

  1. At the beginning of the year these same govt officials declared that they had recruited up to 5000 teachers. And now they are recruiting another 3000. Where do all these ‘teachers’ come from and what uni or TTC did they all attend? Lies, lies and more lies.
