…teachers breathe fire
… vow they will not deploy teachers to invigilate examinations
The Amalgamated Rural Teachers Union of Zimbabwe (ARTUZ) has pushed President Emmerson Mnangagwa's government into a tight corner as they intensify fight over decent salaries. Teachers said they will withdraw labour on the 14th of October unless the government increases their salaries.
Writing on their Twitter handle, teachers said, "We don't have to risk the integrity of national examinations by deploying hungry and angry teachers as invigilators. Withdrawing labour on 14 October is in the best interest of our education sector."
