  1. Why GES is doing this, teachers have gone for promotion and upgrading since June 2020 and have received thier letters but have not reflect on thier payslip.i don’t understand who is to be blamed.Is like they don’t respect us or what.The body responsible for the promotion and upgrading must do something before it is too late.Thank you.

  2. DG please come and answer this question before it’s too late, why are you not going to release teachers?. Is it Basic schools or Pre tertiary please (SHS)?
