Secretary for Primary and Secondary Education, Sylvia Utete-Masango said her ministry does not release statements via social media platforms.
She said this while addressing school heads and members of School Development Committees from Mashonaland Central on the sidelines of the commissioning of an e-classroom or smart classroom at Mazowe High School last week. Said Utete-Masango:
No communication from our ministry is done through WhatsApp. We use proper official communication channels. So much is coming through the social media. Some of us were reportedly fired through the social media. So many reasons were given for my sacking. Some alleged that I am inefficient, some said I am a G40 member, while some said I am too old for the post. I only got to know of this information that was doing the rounds on the social media through my son who is in Ireland. You can imagine how this misleading information circulates. Let us not take to heart all the information we get through the media.
