24% of teachers unqualified: WB

Twenty-four percent of Zimbabwe's teachers are unqualified, according to the Washington-based World Bank.

World Bank Country Director for Malawi, Zambia and Zimbabwe, Kundhavi Kadiresan, confirmed that 24 percent of the teachers in Zimbabwe right now were "unqualified".

She was in the country to see how best the World Bank could help, but said there were still too many ghost workers in the government who were, “gobbling 60 percent of the GNU's National Budget”.

"While Zimbabwe is doing well, the income poverty rate stands at 60 percent, unemployment is at 50 percent, and there are about 24 percent of teachers who are unqualified," she said.
