A group of teachers at Njaba Kunda Upper Basic and Senior Secondary School on Monday returned to Gambia Teachers Union in Kanifing where they were finally paid their salary.

At least 12 teachers last week burned tree branches in front of Njaba Kunda Upper Basic and Senior Secondary School demanding that their salary for three months be paid to them. The teachers were invited to Gambia Teachers Union on Friday eleven hours after their protest – where each was given a quarter of what each owed the government.

On Monday, the teachers returned to Gambia Teachers Union where they were given what remained of their money.

One of them told The Fatu Network: “The issue is now resolved. We all have been safely given our money.”
