As local educators commemorate, World Teachers Day, the Zimbabwe Teachers Association (Zimta) has urged government to recruit qualified teachers and ensure the delivery of quality education especially in rural areas.
Progressive Teachers Union of Zimbabwe secretary general Mr Raymond Majongwe implored the new Primary and Secondary Education permanent secretary, Mrs Thumisang Thabela to promote engagement with stakeholders for the development of the education sector.
World Teacher’s Day is commemorated on the 5th of October annually and this year's theme is "The right to education.... Means the right to a qualified teacher''

Meanwhile teacher organisations have welcomed the move by the Zimbabwe School Examinations Council (ZIMSEC) to establish central examination paper collection points in zones saying it prevents leakages.
Zimbabwe Rural Teacher's Union coordinator Mr Wonder Nyapokoto said the development has however resulted in delays of grade 7 pupils at some schools writing their exams, due to logistical challenges in collecting the papers.
