Mugabe fails to pay promised salaries to teachers

Mugabe fails to pay promised salaries to teachers: "THE cash-strapped Zimbabwe government which approved a hefty salary hike for striking teachers two weeks ago failed to pay the new salaries as civil servants got their pay on Wednesday, union officials said.
President Robert Mugabe announced that he had authorised the massive pay out to teachers and other civil servants after teachers went on strike last month protesting against low salaries."
