Teachers To Continue With Strike


In an exclusive interview with Chimpreports, stuff the National Chairperson for UNATU, Margret Rwabashaija noted that government is feeding the teachers with empty promises and stressed that this situation is unbearable.

“Empty promises and intimidations to teachers is fallacy; no amount of coercion and intimidation can make teachers go back to class and teach,” explained Rwabashaija.

The General Secretary UNATU James Tweheyo advised the teachers to engage in faming activities during this period of strike so as not to lose.

“Use this rainy season to attend to your gardens and plant some crops instead of going to classes,”advised Tweheyo.

Tweheyo advised parents all over the country to take their children back home as he noted that there is no one to cater for them at school.

“We are ready to go back to classes as soon as government increases our salaries,” explained the UNATU General Secretary.

Teachers argue that when they staged a strike in 2011 demanding for a hundred percent salary increment government urged them that the money could not be given to them and promised to increase the salary in quarters noting that now government has now failed to top up their twenty percent increment.
