unemployed teachers taking grievances to the streets

0

About ten thousand teachers who graduated in 2015 from the country’s teachers colleges have warned government that they will go on strike in the first week of April if they will remain unemployed.

One of the affected teachers Pachalo Muthali said that government is not showing any signs of employing the teachers any sooner.

“We have been home for two years and when we approach the authorities what they say is that they will employ us soon.

” We are tired of lies and what we want now are tangible answers not lies. If government will fail to employ us in the remaining days of this month then we will take our anger to the streets probably in the first week of April,” he said.

Reacting to the teachers threats, education ministry spokesperson, Lindiwe Chide said that government wants to put names of the teachers on the payroll before posting them to various schools.

“We will finish puting the names on the payroll by June and after that they will be posted. They just have to have patience because we have not forgoten them,” she added.
