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

Filed under: More News |

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.

  1. 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)

  2. 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. 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.

  7. 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. 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.

    • 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!

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

    • 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.

    • 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. 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.

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

  19. 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.
