Proposed Petition Delivery by SNAT is illegal- Ministry of Education and Training.

By on February 1, 2019

Once again, it is another clash between the Swaziland National Association of Teachers (SNAT) and the Ministry of Education and Training following a statement that was released by the Ministry of Education and Training.

While SNAT was gearing up for the petition delivery march scheduled to start today 0930 at Coronation Park in Mbabane, the Ministry of Education and Training issued a statement to Eswatini Broadcasting Information and Services (government owned radio station) informing head teachers that the proposed petition delivery by SNAT was illegal and against the law.

This is in contrast to what the SNAT said in a statement they issued during the late hour of yesterday. In that statement, SNAT Secretary General Sikelela Dlamini voiced out that all the logistics of the petition delivery march were adequately covered with all stakeholders, including the Ministry of Education and Training, particularly Principal Secretary, Dr Sibongile Mntshali.

The Principal Secretary disputed the above saying that the ministry never approved any March logistics and therefore teachers are expected to be at work. She further stated that those who will be absent without permission will be dealt with according to the laws of the country. She advises parents and guardians to send students to school as it will be business as usual.
