Suspension Of Striking Teachers: It's A Ploy To Instill Fear In Us - PTUZ

The Progressive Teachers Union of Zimbabwe (PTUZ) has said the government’s decision to suspend striking teachers without pay is part of the plan to instil fear in them. PTUZ Provincial coordinator for Mashonaland East Province, Chengeta, issued a statement on Thursday urging members to remain vigilant. Pindula News presents the statement:

Dear Members

The recent announcement by the Minister of Education has proved our capacity and efforts. This is a clear admission of how bad things are in the system. I just want to clarify a few things:

1 This announcement is null and void and a ploy to instill fear in us. Let’s not give in.

2 We are not employed by the Ministry of Education but by the PSC and the announcement by the Minister in not only illogical but also senseless and useless.

3 We were not employed through a press conference and such barbarically announced proclamations induces more anger in us hence everyone must now join.

4 The Minister is exposing herself and weaknesses as a Leader. Leaders listen and are open for dialogue.

Realising the above we say to our members and the rest of the teachers

1 Let’s engage into the second gear until our demands are met

2 Let’s continue to be home as the Union will stand by you all

3 Gudo rikabata kumeso rodza demo.

Let keep the struggle and fire burning. After all 20% of nothing is nothing. We can not offer a service that we can not afford.
