Pupils from three Dar es Salaam primary schools took to the streets yesterday, asking the Government to pay their teachers so that teaching could resume.

The demonstration took place on a day a countrywide strike called by the Tanzania Teachers Union (TTU) drew only partial support.

Teachers shunned the strike and reported for duty as usual at some secondary schools in Dar es Salaam. However, teachers at most primary schools in the region did not teach despite being present at their workplaces.

IN MWANZA, TTU in the region vowed to continue with the strike until "the last teacher is paid by the Government".
