K19.5 billion has been set aside for rehabilitating the University of Zambia
Minister of Education, Science and Vocational Training John Phiri has disclosed that K19.5 billion has been set aside for rehabilitating the University of Zambia (UNZA).
Dr. Phiri says the institution requires serious rehabilitation in order to make the environment betters for learning.
He says among the areas that will be rehabilitated is the water and Sanitation problem prevailing at the University of Zambia.
Dr. Phiri says government will continue to support the highest public institutions of learning in Zambia specifically the University of Zambia and the Copperbelt University.
He says government will fulfill its promise of improving water and sanitation at the institution.
He was speaking on Friday when he addressed students at UNZA.
Dr. Phiri added that government will shorten the process of dialogue to quickly improve the water and sanitation at UNZA.
He says the current government is committed to expand both tertiary and secondary education institutions in the country.
The minister pointed that the Patriotic Front manifesto clearly states that government will not give a blind eye to the two institutions but deal with real issues immediately.
Dr. Phiri has meanwhile urged the students to remain united when addressing the challenges which they may be facing to avoid spoiling their future.
