Gambia’s Vice President, Ousainou Darboe has shed light on threats issued towards Teachers for Change, a pressure group that looks into the plight of teachers.

Currently about 80% of basic secondary school teachers are on an indefinite sit-down strike since Monday, September 17.

During a meeting at State House in Banjul, VP Darboe threatened that if the said teachers fail to report to work effective Sept. 28, their services will be terminated and they will be replaced by retired teachers.
