The current rumors surrounding the purchase of three VW Amaroks by the Ministry of Education are upsetting teachers. These are automobiles, each worth USD 35,000, according to a local news source. The cars were bought for use in national inspection operations. This is due to the lack of a vehicle for the Ministry because every other one is broken. The ministry interprets this to mean that work is not going as planned or has halted and that employees must use their own transportation.
While teachers have been requesting a pay increase for some time, it seems that they are not happy that such expensive vehicles have been purchased. The payment for the various allowances for teaching staff in the interior has also not been paid. The ministry has already received a letter on the payment of teachers’ allowances in the interior, according to the teachers. They have stated that education will not continue in the interior if the money is not paid. The letter has not yet received a response from the ministry. The instructors claim that the cabinet shouldn’t anticipate them to turn in while the money is being wasted.
