Mthuli Ncube's 2022 Budget Has Nothing To Do With The People - Teachers

Mthuli Ncube's 2022 Budget Has Nothing To Do With The People - Teachers

The Progressive Teachers Union of Zimbabwe (PTUZ) has criticized the 2022 budget statement presented by Finance minister Mthuli Ncube Thursday, saying it lacks anything meaningful for the teachers and workers in general. 

PTUZ secretary-general, Raymond Majongwe, made the remarks while talking to on the sidelines of the Zimbabwe Coalition on Debt and Development (ZIMCODD) Live Budget Analysis Conference. He said:

It has nothing to do with the poor. It has nothing to do with the people and as far as we are concerned, we still have to sit down and understand what the Minister wanted to say because as far as we are concerned, it is far short from what we expected.

He said the budget never addressed issues concerning infrastructure development in schools, teachers and learners with disabilities, salaries as well as Information Communication Technologies.

He added that the PTUZ leader said membership will determine the next course of action.

Majongwe underscored that teachers are living in poverty pointing out that morale is at its lowest decline, and all what the teachers are yearning for is to be paid in US$. Teachers have been demanding for the restoration of their pre-October 2018 salaries when the lowest-paid earned an average of US$540.

Nothing that these guys does is really ever for the benefit of the poor placed under their care by the Creator. I have never seen people whose hearts and conscience are so seared. I can't help thinking of Pharaoh and Nebuchadnezzar of the Bible. Lords of Zimbabwe, please, have mercy.
Tatambura weduwee. It's not about kupinda kwemukomana but yuwiiii inzwai tsitsi. Itaivo sevanhu, vakaberekwa nevanhu, vanogara muvanhu vachidya nekumwa zvinomwiwawo navamwe.
