Tazara Strike Enters Day 6

The strike action by Tanzania-Zambia railways employees at the Kapiri Mposhi branch has entered day six.

Unionized workers downed tools last week to press for the release of their five months salary arrears.

The workers say they will not return to work until their arrears are paid in full.

The strike action is expected to extend to other branches as the workers are enduring a similar fate.

Zambia and Tanzania jointly own the country’s oldest railway line.
