Protesting teachers arrested, again

POLICE in Ruwa yesterday arrested members of the Amalgamated Teachers’ Union of Zimbabwe (ARTUZ) leading a 265km salary caravan march from Mutare to Harare. The latest arrest follows similar arrests in Macheke at the weekend where the protestors were released without charge on Monday.

Human rights lawyer Douglas Coltart said: “This regime is unbelievable! ARTUZ teachers have been arrested again on their #MarchToHarare! On Monday, the State admitted the charges were baseless and dropped after they’d been arrested by Macheke police on Saturday. Now they’ve been arrested again by Ruwa police.”

  1. The teachers must refuse to be intimidated by the police. Unfortunately, their demo is misplaced. For one to earn USD one must provide a service or sell products that yield USD revenue. They should instead fight to get the bond notes scrapped.

    1. Uridofo and a bogus chairo unoda mapurisa arege basa ravo hauna kana chaunoziva chose thats why you copy your shit and paste it using a different name

  4. Its just a tactic to frustrate and intimidate the protesters, but they need to soldier until they reach their destination Aluta Continua

  5. These police guys are jus over zealous for nothing.They do as if they do not get up todate news on the country.Do they mean to say they are not aware of the release of these guys in Marondera after they have been found not guilty.For sure these guys are not demonstrating for them to be paid in USA $ like doctors if you read properly.Thgeir living conditions are no longer commensurate to the current situation chete.Whoever is saying only those that produce should be paid in hard currency is shameful and dull.In human resources there are some paid for instructing and having their managerial skills used to bring some results so usasvora mbodza nokuti inkuzvimbira.

  6. Ponziano ndiwe dofo. Munhu haangosungwe for the sake yekusunga. Kana uri mupurisa dzokazve kutraining.
