The Zimbabwe Teachers Association (ZIMTA) has urged teachers to be resolute and not allow to be intimidated by members of the dreaded Central Intelligence Organisation of the Police as they push ahead with a nationwide strike which commences on Tuesday.

In a statement on Monday said teachers must stay home and not go back. The teachers are demanding decent salaries.

ZIMTA has urged its members to report any victimization to ZIMTA officials if there are victimized by the police, headmasters or anyone.

"The forms  of victimization include being called by the headmaster to attend duty while you are on strike, asked to sign letters that  one is on strike, being asked to account for all whereabouts when all authorities have been informed of the strikes."ZIMTA said.

Meanwhile ZBC reported that the Minister of Primary and Secondary Education, Dr Paul Mavima assured the nation that the proposed strike has been shelved as government continues to put in place measures critical in the enhancement of  teachers livelihoods.
