Teachers tell Tsvangirai they are expected to teach computers at schools without electricity


Movement for Democratic Change leader Morgan Tsvangirai today said teachers in Mberengwa told him that they are expected to teach computers at schools that do not have electricity.

The teachers, he said, complained that they are being forced to implement a new curriculum which was foisted upon them without consultation.

Tsvangirai who is on a tour of the Midlands that took him to Mberengwa and Zvishavane today said everywhere he went he heard sordid stories about an economy that is collapsing.

Most of the local leaders, he said, complained about being bused by the Zimbabwe African National Union-Patriotic Font to politicize food aid and to frog-march people to vote for ZANU-PF.

Tsvangirai will be visiting Shurugwi, Vungu ad Chiwundura tomorrow.

The community leaders representing the church, vendors' unions, traditional leaders, teachers and even ordinary villagers all told heart-rending stories that testify to national collapse that only a new government can address.
