    The Progressive Teachers Union of Zimbabwe (PTUZ) Secretary General, Raymond Majongwe yesterday alleged that he received a death threat message on his mobile phone warning him to call off the country wide strike by teachers which the organization called on the 4th of September 2007.

    This comes amid reports of the harassment of teachers in Mhondoro Ngezi, Zaka and Chinhoyi. The teachers want their salaries increased from the current 2.9 million dollars to 32 million dollars per month.

    Initially PTUZ was demanding salary increase of 15 million dollars per month, which was reviewed in a meeting held today in Bulawayo. Teachers reached a consensus that 15 million per month will soon be eroded by the hyper-inflationary environment.
