Finance Minister Mthuli Ncube Announces Measures To Cushion Teachers

Finance and Economic Development Minister, Professor Mthuli Ncube said the government has said the government will be introducing measures to cushion teachers from the biting economy.

Addressing a press conference this Monday in the capital, Ncube said the government is set to increase teachers’ salaries by 100 per cent beginning the 1st of July 2022. He said in addition, there will be some monetary and quasi-monetary benefits. These are:

• Restoration of Advancement awards;

• Payment of Performance awards which had been withheld due to financial constraints, have been restored and these will now be processed effective 1 July 2022. For this, members will now be placed on their correct employment grades;

• Payment of school fees for up to 3 biological children per teaching family; This benefit applies to teachers and payment will be made directly to schools and will be up to a prescribed limit per biological child. The limit is currently at ZW$20 000 per child per term and Treasury is ready to disburse the required amounts for the 1st term.

• Provision of 34 000 housing units as institutional accommodation for teachers To cushion teachers from the rising cost of accommodation, the Government has committed itself to provide 34 000 housing units within and outside school premises over a period of 5 years.

• Provision of transport facilities to ferry teachers in both rural and urban areas has already commenced. This is facilitated by existing structures under the Civil Service Bus Fund and Rural and Urban Mass Transport System.

Teachers have been demanding the restoration of the pre-October 2018 salaries that were in United States Dollars.

Wives do not like it when the father of the house buys some house items for her,, worse if the husband buys her underclothes or panties. She needs freedom to choose, and she only has to be given money. Why not give the civil servants money so they can have the pride of paying their children's fees from their pockets and choose the type of accommodation they want?

18000÷358= $50
its better you give the $50 on top of $175 to make it $225 coz 100% of nothing is not there...

some teachers will be mislead by hearing 100% increase they will think all is well.
Have to consider 100% increase if usdz or rtgs we all know that within 2 weeks to come this 100% increase will be equivalent to 10% increase.
They is a demonic spirit called inflation that is attacking the economy, that one needs dollariezation to be delt with.

Teachers we love you all for the good work thus why we 😭😭 with you.
