No Salary Increase For Teachers, Says Education Minister Prof Mavima
Primary and Secondary Education minister, Profeasor Paul Mavima has told teachers that the government is not in a position to increase their salaries as it has too many challenges which need to be sorted.
Professor Mavima highlighted that the government is working on fixing obsolete structures and shortage of teachers hence cannot afford a pay rise for those already employed.
Speaking at the National Association of Primary School Heads (NAPH) conference in Victoria Falls, Professor Mavima said:
:I appreciate your concerns, but as I said earlier, we have obsolete infrastructure for learners that we are trying to address.
We also have a deficit of 12 000 teachers, while 20 000 are unemployed, so those in the system must try to make do with what is there…The economy is currently not allowing for us to employ and increase salaries.
Our fiscal is low, but we will increase your salaries, including other civil servants’, when the economy normalises.”
