Opposition MDC Alliance leader Nelson Chamisa has accused government of bullying teachers to force them to return to work as the deadlock continues without any sign of resolution.
Government recently announced a 40 percent salary increase which would see the lowest paid teacher taking home $18 000 but they have refused to accept anything less than an equivalent of USD520.
Posting on Twitter, Chamisa accused government of employing bullying to force teachers back to work.
“STOP BULLYING TEACHERS Education must not be allowed to sink. Engage Teachers and address their concerns.
Restore the dignity of the teaching profession. Examining without teaching is a no brainer. Rural child without access to TV, radio,computer,internet most vulnerable,” said Chamisa.
