This followed allegations that the Ministry of Education had recruited 50 relief teachers on Thursday night. Those recruited were said to have paid US$ 20 each.
Masvingo provincial education director Clara Dube admitted over the phone that hundreds of prospective relief teachers stormed her offices on Friday but denied to explain why they gave her the unexpected visit.
“Yes they came to my offices, they wanted their issues to be clarified and they left my office after they got what they wanted. I can not comment further than that, thank you,” said Dube.
A source told Radio VOP: “It was painful yesterday as they went to unrealistic levels through recruiting during the night. That was our first time to see them opening offices up to 22 00 hours.”
