Teachers in South adopt non-violent protests against removal of allowances, ignore Cocacola games

The just ended Coca Cola tournament which was held in three phases; knockout, quarter, and final reviewed that teachers quit sporting activities long time ago.

Many sporting discipline were manned by non teaching staff during the tournament For example, Choma Day sec school teams were accompanied by teaching practice teachers as the serving teachers refused to train the pupils to protest the removal of extra duty allowance. The same was the case with Chuundu High sch. were disciplines like volleyball were manned by TP trs.

Basketball for Jembo school was manned by a security guard.

It was the same with Frances Davidson School, Macha Girls and other schools.

Namwala and Chikuni girls basketball teams came without any staff as teachers were not interested in such activities.

It was even more embarrassing for Monze boarding as their basketball team played without a coach despite hosting the finals for Coca-cola.

When asked by the Watchdog for explanation, sports masters of the schools told the watchdog that they were finding it difficulty to convince teachers to accompany pupils to sports outings because teachers were now busy with alternative fundraising ventures to replace the removed extra duty allowance.

Those in towns are either running small tuntembas or operating taxis. Those in villages have embarked on maize growing and buying.

The teachers say they are now frustrated with their union representatives and have threatened to stop their monthly contributions the unions.

    Don’t waste your time talking politics when others are enjoying their lives with money without politics. See how this Zambian poor woman became a millionaire just by buying and selling accident cars, Very interesting idea. Go to (USED.CO)not dot com, to see the various methods and companies that she was using (USED.CO) not dot com, it is A very simple idea but a very powerful One, Wake up Africans(USED.CO)

    It is a pit that when Zambia is doing fine in sports we have self individuals like Chikwanda. The old fool should give teachers their allowances or TWALAINDAMUNA

  3. Pathfinder  June 21, 2013 at 11:22

    Let teachers concentrate on their job description and that is to teach the subject they were trained to teach. Let the Government employ sports teachers.

  4. Madaliso daka  June 21, 2013 at 10:27

    Take note of the province where these schools come from.

  5. Star Gazer!!!!  June 20, 2013 at 21:24

    honestly you cannot even spell the address, i wonder what teacher taught you with that kind of language

    just type it straight, ZWD will not remove the post.

    MY ADVICE TO ALL CONTRACTORS AND SUPPLIERS TO GOVERNMENT IS THAT WHEN YOU ARE GIVEN DOWN PAYMENT JUST EAT THE MONEY AND ABONDON THE PROJECT BECAUSE WHEN YOU FINSH THE PROJECT THEY WONT PAY YOU ON TIME BECAUSE THEY HAVE NOTHING TO LOSE.CHIKWANDA DOES NOT WANT TO RELEASE PAYMENTS BECAUSE THEY ARE BROKE.

  8. Never in my Era  June 20, 2013 at 19:34

    JUne salaries are in as of this evening. Check your slave salary and confirm whether your slave allowance is there or not. If it is not there just know it is used to buy your own freedom and rights through the bye elections. Haa!!!! You teachers taught us that where there is action there is reaction. Its re action we want to see. CHEERS.

  9. serina  June 20, 2013 at 19:24

    Teacher unions leaders are all socked chickens or simply dumb dogs.Give govt time to look for money my foot. These CNPs are total failures and liars

  10. Kantakarous and karfworfwor President  June 20, 2013 at 16:52

    That’s a lie. I am a teacher at one of the schools and we sent the Bursar to represent the Sports Master and the netball, Basket ball and football coaches who are down with a flu

    • Arise  June 20, 2013 at 19:40

      Am also a teacher and a sports master for that matter. This is a good move. These teachers are not even given night allowances. Especially at primary level. They go home empty handed in the name of sacrifice whilst our leaders are given such allowances even before they claim. Yaba live not fair!

    GRZ broke or what? Could this be the beginning of harder times? Could it be true that we have an over KR 6 trillion projected national budget deficit? Zambians wake up!!!

  13. hastings  June 20, 2013 at 15:45

    Teachers should not boycott extra duty activities because when we pleaded with you not to campaign for the “snake” you defied us and went ahead to make him your president. Just swallow your pride and put in your best to teach without allowances. Sata is now a wealth man so is his wife, Mulenga and those close to him.

    • Headman  June 20, 2013 at 16:30

      Spot on boss. These teachers must learn a lesson. Maybe they will wake up in the next general election.

    • sola  June 20, 2013 at 16:44

      You have HIT the NAIL on the HEAD!!!

      Its pay back time –

      LESS MONEY IN THE POCKET FOR TEACHERS BUT MORE MONEY FOR SATA!! We told you

  14. serina  June 20, 2013 at 15:25

    Can someone explain why salaries for teachers which normally comes around the 15th of every month are not ready relate. Is pf govt broke. Next govt workers Will find it difficult to report for work as their transport money have been exhausted, ,finished, ,no money in the pockets. Or had the salaries gone to costs by-election.

    • mwansa  June 20, 2013 at 18:09

      At the moment by elections are more important than your salaries,just wait you will be paid soon.Give government some time to look for money.

    • Don't Kubeba 2  June 20, 2013 at 19:52

      I hear civil servants now have to sacrifice for a month so that the govt completes the roads and clinics on time. So don’t worry teachers you will get your salaries next month on the 15th. Utilize the lending institutions for now. Subsidies removal + Civil servants salaries and allowances = Completion of clinics,Schools and roads. Don’t worry development first! At least we can make it within 90 months.

  15. Rusco  June 20, 2013 at 15:22

    In a situation where we have a party making government made up of POLITICAL knock engine of political inconsequential and catastrophic consequences, then you know you have a big problem.These guys wake up in the morning with new ideas and want them implemented without due respect of others. Sata has some very good names that describe who he is in terms of economic analysis.

    AS FOR NJASE WE HAVE COMPLETELY DONE AWAY WITH SPORTS THINGS

    • realman  June 20, 2013 at 15:09

      This is done in the tribal enclave of Southern Province.I have not head or seen the copperbelt western,Eastern,Luapula,Lusaka,Central and Muchinga including North western province.No wonder we say HH is tribal looking at the influence he has in Southern Province

      • BULLU SIAJONGOLO  June 20, 2013 at 16:16

        THIS IS WHY SOUTHERN P TRS DID NOT PROTEST WHEN RESPONSIBILITY ALLOWANCE WAS REMOVED LAST MONTH COZ WHATEVER WE DO IS SEEN AS TRIBAL………IT IS GOOD THAT TRS FROM CB,LUAP,EAST DID THAT AND IT WAS NOT SEEN AS TRIBAL

      • Some-Of-Us  June 20, 2013 at 17:36

        Dalu dalu dalu dalu. Yesterday there was an article on this site entitled: “Copperbelt Teachers Complain of Delay in Salaries”. Tribal?

      • Yaba  June 20, 2013 at 17:55

        YOU TRIBALIST.

        In all things you see tribes

  17. dodo  June 20, 2013 at 14:53

    teachers are very funny creatures

  18. Pathfinder  June 20, 2013 at 14:32

    The problem is that any teacher is a sports teacher. Teachers should concentrate on their teaching subject.

  19. Mau Mau  June 20, 2013 at 14:20

    during my school days ta then Solwezi Boys we had sports master and other teachers who used to take us in paces of all sports disciplines. I remember late Mr. Ngombe. It was interesting to participate in inter house sports competitions followed by inter schools and inter provincials. Not these days we haveboth pupils and teachers intersted in fasion and ba niwone niwone.
