SA's education sector could face crisis as Zimbabwe teachers leave. Motsoaledi not renewing permits

Zimbabwean teachers are fast proving to be one of the most in demand professionals on the African continent.

It is being reported that Zimbabwean teachers are in high demand in Rwanda. 

This comes at a time when Home Affairs minister Aaron Motsoaledi has stood his ground against renewing the Zimbabwean Exemption Permit (ZEP). Could this be a decision that will come back to haunt the Home Affairs minister?

Many private South African schools had been hiring Zimbabwean school teachers. 

This could be catastrophic as it could leave a big dent on the local education stratosphere. 

Rwanda was recruiting competent education personnel to be employed in Rwanda in four categories: basic education, basic TVET (technical and vocational education and training), polytechnic and universities, local media reported.

Rwanda has become the new destination for Zimbabwean teachers. 

News website New Zimbabwe reported that the successful candidates were expected to travel to Rwanda in September after undergoing pre departure training by a team of experts from Zimbabwe and the Embassy of Rwanda to ensure adequate orientation and requisite information is imparted to the Zimbabwean nationals before their deployment.

It has also been reported that the Zimbabwean teachers will be earning a hefty salary.
