The Mwanza City TTU chairman, Mr John Kafimbi, said: "We urge you to be extra careful at this time when teachers countrywide are demanding their rights,including their allowance arrears, as you may be tricked into signing something, which lacks validity."

As the Mwanza teachers were being cautioned against appending their signatures to the "suspect" documents, in Dar es Salaam, the TTU went to court to contest an injunction granted by the Labour Court, barring them from going on strike.
