Hage G. Geingob High school teachers on strike

Teaching lessons at Hage G. Geingob High School came to a halt this morning, after the teachers at the school went on an abrupt strike over accommodation issues.

The teachers who said they will be on strike until their demands are met, were denied accommodate at a house by the Director of Education, Arts and Culture for Khomas Regional Council, even though their request to occupy the house was granted by the school board.

In a letter to the school, the Director, Gerard Vries, said the Directorate is not convinced by the arguments of the three teachers who applied for accommodation. He also said that because these teachers are permanent employees of the Ministry, they should make arrangements to acquire their own accommodation. The house which is regularly supposed to be occupied by a caretaker or security guard has been standing unoccupied for four years now.

A teacher who spoke to The Villager under anonymity said “Teachers in need followed the right channels and procedures to occupy the house but to no success and these are teachers that are staying in the squatter camps. The house is just being vandalism and turning into a white elephant”.
