Mnangagwa Slams Teachers' Unions For 'Working With Foreign Govts' To Undermine His Administration

Mnangagwa Slams Teachers' Unions For 'Working With Foreign Govts' To Undermine His Administration

President Emmerson Mnangagwa has expressed disappointment over Teachers’ representative organisations which are allegedly working with foreign governments to undermine his administration. 

The President said this when he officially commissioned new 13 buses and 30 service delivery vehicles for the Public Service Commission at Morris Depot in Harare this Wednesday.

This brings the number of buses that have been disbursed to the PSC to 108.

The President highlighted that government will continue to channel resources towards improving the conditions of service in the public sector.

Mnangagwa, however, noted that while as an employer, the government is implementing measures to transform the country, some employees are working with foreign governments to undermine workplace harmony. He said:

Regrettably, while as an employer government is implementing all these measures, it is disheartening that some employees as has now been revealed are working with foreign governments to undermine workplace harmony as well as national peace and security. Fortunately, my government has the requisite capacity to ensure workplace harmony and guarantee national peace and security.

In the recent past, the Progressive Teachers’ Union of Zimbabwe (PTUZ) was accused of working with the British government to topple the Zimbabwean government.

The union has since denied the allegations saying it is only determined to ensure that the government has improved teachers’ salaries and working conditions.

PTUZ is saying its members will not invigilate ZIMSEC examinations unless they have been offered an allowance.

I HAD DECIDED NOT TO DEBATE THIS SUBJECT, BUT I HAVE BEEN PRICKED IN MY INNER HEART AND FINALLY DECIDED TO JOIN OTHERS IN THE FRAY.

BEFORE WE CALL TEACHERS TRAITORS OR BY ANY OTHER NAMES, LET US VISIT TEACHERS' JOB DESCRIPTION. WHAT DOES IT SAY? DOES IT SAY INVIGILATION IS PART AND PARCEL OF THEIR JOB DESCRIPTION?

THIS IS THE CRUST OF WHOLE MATTER. I HAVE NOT HEARD THE RESPONSIBLE MINISTER OF EDUCATION DISPUTING THE TEACHERS' CLAIMS SAYING IT IS PART AND OF THEIR JOB. SILENCE MEANS CONTENTED.

IF THE MINISTER DOES NOT TELL THE PUBLIC THAT TEACHERS ARE IN AN OFFSIDE POSITION, THEN WE ASSUME TEACHERS CLAIMS FOR INVIGILATION ALLOWANCES ARE GENUINE AND THEREFORE THE MINISTRY MUST NEGOTIATE WITH THE TEACHERS.

TEACHERS HAVE ALWAYS CLAIMED THAT THEIR SALARY IS PEANUTS. AS A RESULT IT WOULD BE WRONG TO BLAST TEACHERS FOR CLAIMING THIS INVIGILATION ALLOWANCE BECAUSE THEY WANT TO IMPROVE THEIR EARNINGS.

IF WE HAVE EVIDENCE THAT TEACHERS ARE WORKING WITH FOREIGN GOVERNMENTS FOR ILLEGAL REGIME CHANGE, THEN TEACHERS MUST BE ARRESTED FOR TREASON AND BROUGHT BEFORE THE COURTS FOR THE RULE OF LAW TO PREVAIL. WE SHOULD NOT ALLOW ILLEGAL REGIME CHANGE IN ZIMBABWE. WE WANT TO CHANGE GOVERNMENTS THROUGH THE BALLOT BOX.

INI NDINI, IWE NDIWE.

Pay teachers a living wage Mr Mnangagwa. Workers not getting a living wage will always unionise and strike. That's a given.

Eph 6:5 EasyEnglish
Slaves, obey your human masters. Remember how important they are. And be afraid of them. Work well for them because you really want to make them happy. Work for them as if you were working for Christ.

Eph 6:9 EasyEnglish
Masters, be good to your slaves in the same way. Do not say things that will frighten them. Do not say that you will punish them for no good reason. Remember that both you and your slaves have the same Master in heaven. And everyone is important to him. He is never kinder to one person than he is to another person.

@Sgftiig I just wanted to understand what was said (Trying to understand Ndebele). No intended insult, but still I didn't get what you have just said except that you want me "to go to hell". I could go if the admission fee is payable in RTGS. I however understand that the Zimbabwe situation inongopa vanhu ukasha, so cool down brother/sister we are fighting the same cause.

The way the plea is being administered has already hit a dead end. Demonstration is a precarious balancing act. The way the PTUZ profiles it's complain to the government, I doubt if they would be treated with kid gloves. Let's see

I agree with you your Excellency, the way some leaders of certain teachers unions are behaving behoves me. They're are more determined than the "teachers" they purport to represent in fihting the government. I think that actually works against the teachers' desires and expectations because government then becomes unwilling to meaningfully engage them. We don't need politicians to engage government on our behalf as teachers. All we want is productive engaged with the employer but certain individuals seem to be riding on our plight to fight our employer. That is counter productive. Please stop it. We need to have engagements that have results benefitting the teachers, students, guardians, parents and not just pain the employer as a demon. Let's learn to be positive, realistic and constructive in our engagements.
