Thousands of teachers on Friday marched to Finance Minister Mthuli Ncube’s office to demand a minimum wage of $3 000 dollars or have their current salaries pegged in US dollars.

The educators, who comprised Progressive Teachers Union of Zimbabwe (PTUZ) members, also demanded the immediate scrapping of government’s 2 percent tax on electronic transfers.

In its petition, the militant teachers group outlined a list of demands that included clarity of their 2018 bonus payments and the provision of non-monetary incentives by their employer.
