Harare-The Amalgamated Rural Teachers Union of Zimbabwe (ARTUZ) and the Progressive Teachers Union of Zimbabwe (PTUZ) have said they will be withdrawing their labour on Friday in solidarity in solidarity with Dr. Peter Magombeyi.
Addressing journalists in Harare, PTUZ and ARTUZ leaders said they were in solidarity with the medical doctors because Dr. Magombeyi was fighting for a worthy cause.
“Dr. Magombeyi was leading a fight for a living wage for the Doctors which would ordinarily benefit the broader spectrum of the working class. The demand is also in sync with our clarion call for salaries indexed with prevailing interbank rates,” said ARTUZ secretary general Robson Chere
PTUZ president Raymond Majongwe said the abduction of Dr. Magombeyi is not only a cause of concern for the doctors but for everyone.
“An injury to one of us is an injury to all, we cannot continue to have the same situation of abductions in this time and age. When President Mnangagwa came to power he was waving a white flag saying he would change things but today we continue to witness the same thing. It has to stop,” said Majongwe
Chere said they were demanding the immediate return of Dr. Peter Magombeyi and therefore will be withdrawing their services.
“Our members will be withdrawing labour on Friday 20 September if our demands are not met. We call on all teachers not to report for work on this day. We urge them to pray for the safe return of Dr. Magombeyi,” said Chere
