Rural teachers ready to fight the government
ALTHOUGH most of uprisings have been in the big cities, teachers in rural areas have refused to be marginalized in the plight against the government.
It is reported that Zimbabwe’s rural teachers will next week embark on a 200 kilometer march against political violence, poor salaries and government failure to improve education facilities in the countryside.
The protest will start in Murehwa district, Mashonaland East on August 15 and proceed for 10 days to the capital city, Harare, said the Rural Teachers Union of Zimbabwe.
“We call upon all teachers and parents based in the areas which we will walk through, to join us and march for the betterment of rural education,” the Union said in a statement on Wednesday.
