By Dorrothy Moyo | The government has threatened to totally suffocate striking teachers disconnecting them from their legal right to protest.

The development comes as teachers are being paid less than USD100 per month amid other employment constraints.

Announcing during a cabinet briefing, Information Minister Monica Mutsvangwa said:

“Government reiterates that it will strictly apply the no-work no-pay labour principle to all cases of teacher absenteeism, and the responsible ministry (Primary and Secondary Education) has compiled and submitted a list of teachers who did not conduct lessons in March to the Public Service Commission.

“The April list is being compiled. Meanwhile, learner attendance across the country remained the same as recorded last week,” Mutsvangwa announced.
