Address Teachers' Grievances And Reopen Schools Now, Chamisa Tells Government

Address Teachers' Grievances And Reopen Schools Now, Chamisa Tells Government

Nelson Chamisa, the leader of Zimbabwe’s largest opposition political party, the MDC Alliance, has called on President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s administration to improve teachers’ working conditions and reopen schools.

Chamisa said schools should be reopened forthwith with strict observance of COVID-19 prevention measures.

The opposition leader also urged the Government to restore teachers’ pre-October salaries when the average civil servant was paid US$540 per month. Tweeted Chamisa:

ADDRESS TEACHERS’ GRIEVANCES & OPEN SCHOOLS NOW! -Restore teachers’ salaries to pre-October 2018 levels of at least USD 540. Improve teachers’ status & the conditions of service. Regularize the negotiating platforms. Open schools under COVID19 precautionary measures.

Recently, the Amalgamated Rural Teachers Union of Zimbabwe (ARTUZ) also urged the Government to reopen schools, saying there is no justification for their continued closure.

ARTUZ queried why schools remain closed when courts, churches, bars, banking halls, supermarkets, among other facilities, are open.

Schools were scheduled to open for the first term on 10 January but Mnangagwa deferred the date indefinitely citing rising coronavirus infections at the time.

Just over a week ago, Acting President Constantino Chiwenga, extended the Level Two COVID-19 lockdown by a further two weeks and indicated that schools will remain closed for at least three weeks.

@Oppressed : If you feel your current employer is underpaying you, the best solution available to you is to look for a job elsewhere that meets your salary expectations. Thereafter, you may proceed with tendering your resignation letter and then leave the current (underpaying) employer. My advice to all : Your current employer shouldn't be confused with a PRISON, the choice to stay or leave is entirely yours.

Honestly there isnt any justification code as to y schools have to remain closed under lockdown level 2 coz all other essential and non essential services are operating. The current generation of Zimbos has been destroyed in many ways but its very Good in its adaptive living skills, fears and worries Will start arising wen we nw see the future generation being led into the drainage and knowing very well that they can't adapt
