Teachers boycott reopening of schools
In rural areas, unions claimed there were low teacher attendances, lack of screening thermometers and sanitisers, and most pupils had no masks.
“I have been going around schools in Tsholotsho where I am stationed and teachers have not turned up.“Reports coming in from other parts of the country and also show that teachers have not gone to work. They heeded our declaration of incapacitation and there is no going back.
“Some students were wearing rags as masks and others were being turned away for not having masks.“The situation on the ground is dire and we call upon the government to intervene and address all these issues, including the remuneration of teachers who are currently incapacitated.”
