TAZARA: Train operations back to normal!

Following a ruling by the High Court of Tanzania, Labour Division, declaring the strike by the unionized workers of the Tanzania-Zambia Railway Authority in Tanzania as unlawful, the suspension of TAZARA's operations has been uplifted. All train operations have therefore resumed with immediate effect. The Court also ordered that the employees are permanently restrained from conducting illegal strikes in future.
In the meantime, TAZARA also managed to source funds to pay all the employees their salary arrears, which were a subject of the strike both in Zambia and in Tanzania. Workers in both countries have resumed work immediately.
