    Over 50 teachers who were arrested in Yaoundé for protesting unpaid salaries have been released under strict conditions!

    On Tuesday last week, over 300 teachers took to the streets of Yaoundé to march in protest of unpaid salaries for over 5 years.

    Forces of law and order got to the scene and apprehended most of the teachers, about 56 of them.

    Government officials later on called for the Teacher's trade union leaders to sit for a meeting to talk about their grievances.

    The Teachers Trade union leaders boycotted the meeting and demanded for the immediate release of their colleagues thrown behind bars simply for protesting their unpaid salaries.

    The deliberations ended in a deadlock. After spending 5days in detention, the teachers were released.

    These are the conditions which the detained teachers had to fulfill before regaining their freedom:

    -Call off the strike action
    -Dissolve the existing association of aggrieved teachers
    -Thank the government for adressing their plight
    -Delete all whatsaap and facebook groups created by the association.
