Cabinet must resign - SNAT
MBABANE - President of the Swaziland National Association of Teachers (SNAT), Sibongile Mazib-uko, has called for Cabinet to resign before it is too late.
Mazibuko was speaking yesterday during the second day of the public sector union workers picketing.
The picket is a build-up to the proposed mass strike action set to take place on the 11th and 12th, next week. "We shall not surrender. We would rather die.
The government won’t cut our salaries; instead our salaries will be increased," she said. She blamed Cabinet for having failed the country. She said corruption was rife since the country loses E80 million a month.
Mazibuko blamed cabinet for having introduced circular No. 1, of 2010 which provided for increased allowances for politicians. She said the circular provided certain people with large packages at the expense of the workers.
"Some people get cellphone allowances which are higher than our monthly salaries," she alleged.
...govt has killed education
MBABANE - President of the Swaziland Nati-onal Association of Teachers (SNAT), Sibon-gile Mazibuko, alleged that government has killed education in the country.
Addressing workers during the picketing yesterday at the Ministry of Public Service, Mazibuko said the introduction of the International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGSCE) was evident enough that government was killing the education system of the country.
"No wonder some of their children go to South African schools," she said.
Mazibuko said there were graduates and products of the education system of the country who were indulging in drugs. She attributed that trend to the poor education system in the country.
"Some children are on the streets, smoking and drinking because their future has been destroyed by the education of the country."
