“I must emphasize that we have networked everywhere and on Monday all teachers will not teach,” vowed Sewungu.

Sewungu therefore called upon teachers to persist with their strike if they are to achieve their demands from government.

“It’s now or never for the teachers. The government we have is just like a wheelbarrow that needs to be just pushed so as to achieve something,” noted the legislator.

Sewungu however warned members of parliament and the RDCs not to intimidate and threaten the teachers as they begin their strike next week.

This comes a few days after teachers under their organization UNATU vowed not to return to work as the new term begins next week blaming government for not honoring its promise of raising their salaries by 20 percent.
