ED DAEIN(23 Oct.) -
The Ministry of Education of East Darfur announced that school lessons will be resumed again on Sunday. This follows a hiatus of more than 50 days, owing to a teachers' strike in the state.
The teachers embarked on a strike on 3 September, in protest against the non-payment of several arrears, amounting in total to about SDG3 mn ($522,000).
The state Minister of Education, Siddig Abdelnabi Ahmed, told Radio Dabanga that an agreement was reached on a payment schedule of the arrears, allowances, and salaries until the end of this year.
