Some teachers in the country have expressed concern to the government over unpaid three months’ salary.
According to one of the ODL 3 and IPTE 8 teachers, Mr Enock Malora, this is a very worrisome development to them.
He said the government need not to be doing this considering the state of things in the country due to economic crisis that has seen prices of most goods and services being hiked.
Malora said these teachers are meeting more challenges in as far as feeding their families is concerned saying most of them have no other alternative ways of getting money.
He added that the most challenging thing is that most of them were posted far away from their respective homes, a situation which he said has contributed to their suffering. He then wondered why government is doing this having in mind that the teachers stayed at home for more than a year after being told that the ministry was looking for enough funds for their payments when posted.
However, government through ministry of education, science and technology spokesperson, Manfred Ndovi, said it will respond to the raised concerns very soon.
