Teachers Union Attacks Chamisa Over Mahere Appointment
Progressive Teachers Union of Zimbabwe Secretary General, Raymond Majongwe has slammed MDC President, advocate Nelson Chamisa’s appointment of advocate Fadzai Mahere as the party Secretary for Education, Sports, and Culture.
Majongwe says that PTUZ cannot accept the idea that the MDC does not have an organic Educationist. Majongwe tweeted:
As the PTUZ the appointment of Fadzai Mahere does not inspire us at all. We can’t be told the whole MDC doesn’t have an organic Educationist of repute. Education is not for everyone.@gibson140 @Mavhure @i_sibanda @zimta01 @matdera @p_mutasa@Njube @matigary @SihawuSMoyo
Mahere announced only on Wednesday that she had joined the party although she is said to have been present at the party congress.
Mahere tweeted on Wednesday:
Zimbabwe deserves a strong, united opposition to build the future. I’m happy to announce that I’ve officially joined the MDC. We must speak with one voice against bad governance and strive to create a nation that is free and prosperous. All hands on deck. God bless Zimbabwe
Her move attracted mixed responses with some, a bit skeptical, claiming that she is targeting the Glen View South House of Assembly seat that fell vacant following the demise of the late Vimbai Tsvangirai-Java who succumbed to accident injuries on the 10th of June this year.
Meanwhile, Mahere is a Law Lecturer at the University of Zimbabwe, a profession that some say makes her qualified for the post.
