Legal action will be taken against Bunda district authorities for stripping a school headteacher of his post because of allegedly taking part in last year's strike the union had organized.

"A district commissioner is not supposed to interfere with the education system," said the Tanzania Teachers Union (TTU) secretary in Bunda district, Mr Ruhumbika Francis.

Speaking over the phone from Bunda yesterday, he admitted that his office had received complaints from the headteacher, Mr Dotto Bwire, of being stripped off the post. He was also indefinitely suspended from teaching for allegedly taking part in the strike.
