SELEBI-PHIKWE: Selebi-Phikwe West MP, Dithapelo Keorapetse has said that as President Mokgweetsi Masisi has promised to address teachers’ concerns when he assumed office, he must then implement fundamentals like the right for teachers to withdraw their labour.

Speaking at a prize-giving ceremony at Lebogang Junior Secondary School this week, Keorapetse decried sour industrial relations between government and unions, added that issues such as teachers’ allowances, the 26 days issue and others related to their conditions of service depressed and killed teachers’ morale.

However, do not despair and be discouraged. We will continue to pursue government to address these issues,” he said.
