Open Letter To H.E E D Mnangagwa
By a Disgruntled Parent
I write this letter, on the 21st of February 2022, representing parents of school going kids and all parents in Zimbabwe. I do have nothing with the teachers’ plea. As parents we are worried with the future if our kids.
This war between teacher and the Public service commission needs your attention as soon as possible. You are the president of this country and you need to act like one.
You never even said anything to the public about the teacher’s son going strike or incapacitation, as they are calling it.
You went to Epworth and to Marondera to address parents whose kids are not going to school and you never cared even to mention that the teacher problem will be sorted. Instead you talked about the future problems and their solutions leaving a very serious issue which needs the government intervention.
Talked about future minerals and future ports, and going to China on feet.
Please let’s look into the teachers s problem. They have a genuine concern. And for your own information, the teacher s concern is now becoming a parent problem, and also, it’s a concern of all the civil servants.
In short, this problem on poor salary for teachers is an inclusive issue affecting all Zimbabweans at large. Only you and your cabinet are not affected.
As parents we have paid school fees, transported kids to boarding schools, bought a lot of stuffs for the kid and bought stationery and uniforms, expecting our kids to be in schools learning. It’s now two weeks going to the third week and you don’t have an answer to the teacher or to Zimbabweans s problem.
When CCC and Pedzisai Ruhanya are saying ED HAS NO PLAN, they mean it. You seem not to be had anything to offer. Sometimes I wonder if you are the same ED who come from SA promising good living to Zimbabweans. I think you changed, you now have criminal around you or what. You are not walking along your first speech as the Zanu pf leader. Can you retrieve this first speech and get some time to listen to it?
Yes, that’s the President we want. That’s the ED we want.
Can prove Ruhanya and CCC wrong and surprise all this week and let our kids start going to school.
Or maybe your people are not telling you the truth. The truth is school were opened but nothing is going own for two weeks, Only covid transmission, from kid to kids, is happening at schools not transmission of knowledge from teacher to kids. This is the truth. And teacher are not backing up. This time they mean business and they are not afraid of the owl s horns.
As I said above, the same parents you are sweet talking to vote for you are the same parents whose kids are either sleeping at home or sleeping at boarding school not learning. Think about it. I will not think for you and I will not think for the parents.
The same soldier, nurses, police officers, doctors, commanders, Amy generals, prison guards you bank on, are the same people whose kids are not schooling. Another meat to fry for you. I will not fry it for you or for the Zimbabweans.
The kids are the future of the country, the leaders tomorrow, the ministers for tomorrow and we need to take care of them. Yes, your kids might not be in this same problem but can you feel for you poor ZIMBABWEANS kids.
I hope, you will get this letter and please action it.
Parent with kids at heart.
