Nkwazi workers down tools

Headlines Nkwazi workers down tools

Unionized Workers at Nkwazi Primary School in Lusaka have staged a sit in protest demanding improved conditions of service.

The workers are also not happy with the delays in negotiations between management and the Union.

A ZNBC News crew on Thursday found the workers waving placards denouncing the Board Chairperson and the Business Manager.

Basic Education Teacher’s Union of Zambia Nkwazi Branch Chairperson Bwalya Chileshe says the workers want the Board Chairman to address them.

And BETUZ Spokesperson, Hillary Chipango says the union has advised the workers to go back to work.

Nkwazi Primary School Board Chairman Mahesh Amin declined to comment on the matter.

  1. Its a private school princess but I cant wait to hear how the PF kaponyas are going to include RB in all this. They will always blame it on the rain.

  2. I am impressed ma Zambians ba jampuka, protesting everything that affects their well being. Democracy is nice Bantu bangu.

  3. 2nd time this is happening @ Nkwazi in the recent past. Don’t call me a racist but how come such protests were unheard of when the school was run by muzungu’s (Mr Bowden & co), even long after ZCCM had stopped funding the school? Lakeroad school is managed by competent Zambians and you don’t hear of such nonsense, surely something is amiss @ Nkwazi.

  4. The problem at Nkhwazi is the owners. I had my son there three years ago and I didn’t like the way those Indians were treating the teachers. In terms of teachers performance you can’t realy faulter them as the school is still the best in Lusaka province in trems of G7 results. Their business manager is a racist and a pain in the ntwenikano, one can hardly get anything done if it doesn’t come from his fellow Indians. Mr Sakala is just a figrehead there, he doesn’t make any decisions at all.

  5. Ever since the Lusaka Hindu Association took over the school, they have demoralised hard working and intelligent Zambians. Mr Bowden continued to get an excellent expatriate salary after ZCCM sold the school but the Zambians were still poorly paid. Even in Mr Bowden’s time there were at least two teaher sit ins. Almost all the great teachers have left in search of greener pastures and respect. These Indians claim to be Zambians but a mwenye bane is a mwenye! They have India and Zambia, we only have Zambia. time to vote Shrek and his stooges out bane!

    • You are right Grace, these ba mwenye have been tolerated so much. imagine even in the time of president Mwanawasa (MHSRIP), these indians were still a pain in the bottom! i worked for Nkhwazi School for a year and a half and thank God I hd to move on as quickly as i could. I am working outside the country, but truth is, not every one wants to work outside the country or indeed can. I am here because I need to find something better but imagine what Iam doing here i could be doing it for mother Zambia. Levy had daughters at that school when he was president and pipo thot that was the opportunity for those indians to be put where they belong. but still nothing happened. Bane Tu vote bwino Pa Tuesday, 20th otherwise, tukashitishefye icalo tukakane amahalfu pakuti binse tukalyeko
