The National Education Health & Allied Workers Union (NEHAWU) congratulates its President, Cde Mzwandile Makwayiba for being elected as President of the World Federation of Trade Unions [WFTU] at the 17th Congress held in Durban last week. Cde Makwayiba will be President for the next five years.
His election proves the confidence WFTU has in his leadership capacity and we as NEHAWU, are more than convinced that he will tackle his new responsibility with aplomb.
"International solidarity is not an act of charity: It is an act of unity between allies fighting on different terrains toward the same objective. The foremost of these objectives is to aid the development of humanity to the highest level possible." Samora Machel
The National Education Health & Allied Workers Union [NEHAWU] commemorates the 30th anniversary of the passing away of former President of both the Republic of Mozambique and the liberation movement Frelimo, Samora Moisés Machel.
Machel will forever be etched in our memories as a resolute revolutionary who stood against colonial oppression and for freedom and democracy. As President of the Republic he dedicated his life towards service for the people of Mozambique. During his tenure he abolished both private schools and clinics thus ensuring that there was universal access to both health and education.
