Teachers paid US$35 in June
Published: 19 June 2019 (193 Views)
Zimbabwean teachers were paid salaries which are an equivalent of US$35 during the month of June.

In a screen shot that was posted by Progressive Teachers Union of Zimbabwe Secretary General Raymond Majongwe a bank message said the recipient was given an amount of RTGS$348.21.

The black market rate on Wednesday was at USD1:RTGS$ 10.

Commenting on the matter Human Rights lawyer Pedzisayi Ruhanya said, "So if a Zimbabwean teacher earns US$35 a month, how does a family live under this salary, what is the perception of that person to the authorities. What hope does this person have for the future and his family given that we have been in this crisis since ZANU PF lost elections in 2000."

The Amalgamated Rural Teachers Union of Zimbabwe has called its members to engage in an industrial action from the 18th to the 21st of June protesting against being under paid.
