Govt Suspends More 'Incapacitated' Teachers

Govt Suspends More 'Incapacitated' Teachers

The Ministry of Primary and Secondary Education continues to suspend teachers, deputy heads and school heads who failed to report for duty when schools opened for the first term on 7 February citing incapacitation.

According to the Zimbabwe Teachers Association (ZIMTA), school heads have also been directed to demand reports from those teachers who were not on duty from the 7th of February 2022 together with those who reported either on the 7th or 22nd of February but thereafter left the workplace.

ZIMTA Acting Secretary-General Goodwill Taderera teachers will respond to the demand for written responses within 14 days following consultations with ZIMTA and its lawyers. Said Taderera:

In the meantime, we have commenced legal proceedings before the courts amidst continued engagement with the authorities for an amicable solution to the continued suspensions of our members.

Meanwhile, ZIMTA has urged its members to desist from acts of lawlessness such as locking learners out of classrooms and demanding cash before learners can be allowed into the classroom. Added Taderera:

We are aware that some educators who are not our members will also most likely find themselves suspended or asked to write a report explaining their whereabouts from the 7th of February 2022.

We encourage them to move with speed and join ZIMTA through their school representatives or Provincial Executive Officers so that on being served with a demand to write a report we can assume agency and represent them in the review applications before the Labour Court or High Court.

why did the government wait for trs to strike b4 increasing their salaries, They shld have negotiated salaries with unions and agree b4 schools open, Now, by suspending they are causing more harm than good, and the truth of the matter is, while at home, they will be conducting illegal extra lessons coz most experienced trs are affected, For example, how do u quickly replace a physics tr when we already have shortage, Yes, trs are being suspended bt it affects everyone as long as you have a child going to school, In addition, its not a good move especially for Pres ED, now that elections are around the corner, education is a very sensitive sector bcoz it affects every member of the society starting from the ground coz everyone has a child, to make matters worse, trs had a very genuine vause which the government did,not,want to listen to and adress

All I can say is that the govt is spoiling a war,a brutal one for that matter. Casualties will be there but our education system will suffer the biggest blow. I know of a school with over 75 teachers,and out of these, 65 will be affected. How then will such a school be managed🥴🥴
