“Yati sinenkinga lenkhulu lana tsine bo-Thishela lesisebenta ngema contracts.Some of us have been contract teachers for ove 10 years but government nyalo utsi soyasi dumper and kulikhuni for us to secure employment because noma ngabe ungayenta le education nabuya naleso stifiketi akasi recognise ikakhulu tsine lesifundze eluyengo with Degrees but without education. Besicela lokutsi sosisite especially in engaging the relevant ministry kutsi basi dumpe lani after serving for such a longtime kani sesiyawati nalomsebenti”, said the alleged contract teacher.
