Teachers' Unions in Zimbabwe have announced that their members will not report for work when schools open next week unless the government agrees to raise salaries to what they say is the basis minimum level needed for survival, as well as reconsidering housing and transport allowances. Mugabe met with civil servants last year and promised to double salaries using income from diamond sales. This never happened. ZANU PF blames Finance Minister Tendai Biti. Biti says the money from diamonds isn't reaching the treasury and the government is broke. Parliamentarians, meanwhile, were recently able to pressure the government into paying out allowances owed to them. Teachers' Unions say this is clear evidence that money exists.
