Mwanza teachers seek permit to stage demo

From The Citizen, Dar es Salaam

Teachers in Mwanza City yesterday resolved to stage a demonstration to push the government to pay their outstanding claims in allowances and other dues.

Some teachers who converged at the Gandhi Hall to deliberate on the fate of their countrywide strike halted by the Labour Division of the High Court, asked union leaders to seek a permit to demonstrate.

"We're no longer in the mood to continue teaching. The TTU (Tanzania Teachers Union) must ensure it obtains permission for us to make a peaceful demonstration so that we can air our grievances," one of the teachers said.
