Do we have to block roads for Government to Listen?

File:Zambian students at the Russian people's Friendship university (RPFU) on stage dancing to mozegata song "time time"

I would like to air my grievances over both the former and present government for continuously neglecting G.R.Z. students abroad. We have been airing our problems to them but all in vain.

I feel like it takes the blocking of the Great East road for them to understand that we are really in need of their consideration. Unfortunately being in a foreign country and Russia specifically is not a joke.

The only way we can air our views is through the embassy which I feel is doing practically very little or nothing at all.I don’t know if it was a political move or not but our friends back at UNZA and CBU have seen their allowances increased 225% during the past 3 years whilst for foreign student a
mere 25% for the same period of time.

We have tried our level best to convince them on simple arithmetic that even someone from all walks of life can understand “The costs of commodities have increased by over 70% in the past 3 years in Russia” which am sure is not felt by the so called diplomats we try to channel our grievances because their salaries have been continuously revised over the same period.

To make it worse our government can’t even give us the same little money on time. Right now as am speaking, the government has not yet sent the money for the student to buy their medical policies and are being threatened to expelled from school because its a law of the Russian Federation for all foreign students to have medical policies before the start of an academic year which starts in September.

I would like to remind the government that we are also Zambian students under Bursaries Committee and we deserve fair treatment.

      ya mukombe ..we didnt know what Russia was really made of until we got here..its somehow unfair for GRZ to only consider our colleagues who are studying within the country when it comes to increment, especially the fact that it is only done for political gain and not for the well being of the students

    i guess all diplomats at the embassy should go.they re doing nothhing.recently two students were expeled frm the same skul.the embassy could ve intervened bt  no one defended the students.there were chances for them to continue according to the skul but our embassy could nt do wat they were required to do.especialy the education attache he is a waste of time

      :(( it’s so sad that you can say a thing like that, do you even know the students in question, I personally know them and know what went on, their own school admin told them the only other option they had to continue studying at the university was to sponsor themselves and repeat, they had been missing classes and had accumulated academic debt, not even the embassy could do anything, it’s not even humanly possible to write all the exams they had outstanding… get your facts right next time.

    Why did you go there in the first place? Such stories have been there for a long time. Advice is that before you take up a Govt. scholarship to such countries, do due deligence and find out the conditions under students endure. Ask from former students of these countries for life experinces. Just endure and get your qualifications and come back home, them quickly advance your studies.

    Simunyola, it wasn’t a mistake. I can feel what these students are experiencing. I did my firsrt degree myself in Russia. i got so much knowledge that when i did my Masters at Liverpool and my PhD at Harvard, I felt i was naturally intelligent because of the solid background i had.

    we need to invest in these students and increase their stipend a hundredford

    #6 Te fintu,

    No, we DON’T need to invest in these students, instead we need to invest in OUR universities so that they start carryng out meaningful research. Any development begins in the lab, so as long as there is no political will towards research, the country will hardly develop.
    Also, however intelligent u become after u earn ur degrees, as long as u dont contribute to nationa ldev through meaniful research, then u are a waste to the nation. The govt has been sending students to study abroad since independence, but

      :((… AM cryin coz i feel u hav no insight, the reason y The Govnt sends students is to acquire knowledge wich is absent in our counrty,technology is not sent on a plane ,some one has to study it n bring it home,no matter hw much u invest if u dnt knw wat u invest into u cn neva attain development,there things wich dont exist in zambia ,which are a mere nuisance in europe,so if u think those students are a worst of time,think again,travel to one of these countries n compare it to zambia,then u wil knw that it is nt jst money that is required to b invested,do u knw y even big countries like america send people to learn else were,its not that they don’t hav the capabilities,its coz they wnt to expand there database,if u dont hv sight u cnt see benefits ,,,

    Education is a big ‘business’ in the west, they make alot of money frm intl students. and the zambian govt has been a gud customer ‘since independence. why cant we jst strengthn our edu system so that we internalise resaerch?
    -most of the reasech in western universities are done with the help students.And this is not jst a source of income to students, but they also learn research skills. If u want to be dispointed jst go and giv a reasearch work to a UNZA or CBU garduate!

      Mr. Simunyola and all the others who are against our govt sending students to other countries are just plain stupid. 1st of all, education cant be “a big business” because we are here as a grant from the russian govt. our govt is required, according to their deal with the russians, to provide us with meal allowances, accomodation allowances, book allowance, a medical insurance policy amoung other things. the russians pay for our tuition, exams, research and anything else accademic, get your facts straight. secondly, our current accademic state in zambia cannot provide places for all high school graduates in universitys or collages, so the govt is forced to send some out. were lucky China, Russia and Algeria are taking in so many students. build more universitys at home first, then talk.

  13. vote

    It was indeed a mistake to send you to Russia especially for a first degree. Most of you got those scholarships in dubious circumstances.
    Come home and enroll at Cavendish.
    On a serious note, lets expand the capacity and quality of our universities and more funding so that we dont send students to Russia. We can actually make money from education as a country.
    ZCAS is a living example of what a well run institution can achieve (Forget about Iris and Nathan)..

    Let us be honest with ourselves for once and open up our eyes to reality. Firstly, the education system in eastern and western europe is more advanced than what is currently existing in out zambian universities- fact. But you are the same people talking about strengthening universities, in what way? My friends, bringing in fresh ideas from outside is one of the very few ways that such projects can be pioneered, and if you are talking about foundations, that was supposed to be done upon the institiution of these learning facilities. why is America such a great nation today? Because they were always open to ideas from outside that could improve the living standards of the nation as a whole. the age of pioneering ended in the 20th cent

     i am studying in russia and its too expensive to live government does not even look after us no book allowance no project fee nothing only ka 1000 dollars which comes after 5 months and some weeks or 6months,from that same money  one should buy a medical policy which increases yearly these are our expenses

    $500    hostels every six months
    $50   transport every month to my university

    Mr Simunyola, it is clear that u dnt understand a thing, we praise the zambian govnt for sending us here,if i may ask,do u knw who pays for tution,nt the salary we get bt the sku fees.,n u think the western countries earn frm sku labs n stuf,wich western country r u referin to am sure its nt russia or rather the sku i go to,u say invest in our local university thats recomedable,bt wat r u investin wen u don;t knw the tech,even western countries send studs to study abroad so that the expand the’r knowledge n here u think zambia is wastin resources,yeah has the govenment employed the pipo it sends to study abroad,thats another isue n its nt student fault that there is no employment in zambia,o in govnt,so u cnt blame them for no doin any research u might say ,

  20. vote

    Those of you who are against the govt offering scholarships to study abroad are total morons. Are u trying to show us what kind of social status u exist in? thats why the govt offer scholarships u *****, to those who cannot afford to pay for their own education. I must admit the conditions of study, including the student allowances are not too pleasing, but the knowledge offered in countries like Russia is next to gold, far from what cbu and unza offer. dont you think that could be vital inout inti improving  Zambias educational sector at university level? And this ***** says enrol at cavendish.

      oh please Alpha how many zambians have been out studying in Russia and how many have come back to teach others thats the whole reason govt sends them there to impart the knowledge back to the ordinary zambians that didnt get the chance…patriot my foot whilst praising other nations cbu,UNZA,evelyn hon,Nipa to mention but a few has produced real patriots that are currently slaving for our country…..this bursaries thing should even be scraped out and give it to the zambian students that are attending school in local institutions

    #19 barussia,
    I dont know who pays u ur tuition, but since u ar asking for alowances frm the gov, one wouldnt be wrong to assume that zambian gov pays ur tuition fees. U shud come to the US and see how money is made in the lab, apparently Russian universities arent strong enough to make money. Its ok to send students abroad, but not at the expence of developing our own universities!

    • vote

      well if frm the begining it was at the expense of building our local university don’t u think they wud have done something about?? Well unfortunately the russian government deals with o students on budget apart frm ther allowances,u shud hav collected such data before put a big blame on them, if only it was the allowance we needed am sure this guy wudn’t have gone online,n u cnt blame the student about studying abroad for u r also abroad wether on self or sponsored doesnt carry weight,has there been a day wen the govnt said we cnt pay zambians at UNZA coz we sent money to russia?? No i dnt think so,so y wud u think we get paid at expense of local Uni,we are equally entitled, wether we voted or not,mind u we don’t vote once in life ,just like we don’t live forever in russia

  22. vote

    The GRZ makes it clear when sending students here that its up to your families to help you where GRZ cant. GRZ pays you US$250 month which is given to every 4 months(a sum total of US$1000). There is no year or month in which students were never paid. The question is: how much money do your parents sent to help you(per month or per year)? Most of you students do send money from BC home to help you parents,brothers and sisters. SOMETIMES YOU NEED TO APPRECIATE WHAT YOU GOT.

    I stand to be corrected, the study in Russia is not paid for by the Zambian Government but is under scholarships from the Russian Government. the scholarships are just administered by Bursaries but funding comes from the sponsoring Government which in this case is the Russian Government. If this is correct it may assist you to direct the request for increments to the appropriate authorities that grant scholarships in Russia

      do not comment if u have no data about the scholarship, its a two way scholarship the russian government pays 4 education and gives the students book allowances and the zambian government gives the students meal allowances!

    In order for a country to develop it invest in many ways,term investment doesn’t mean u jst hav to rip money at the end,or it being local owez,1 of the ways has bin sending the students, abroad,jst coz its a scholarship doesnt mean u cn say wat u hv to ,To Mr Simunyola the tutions are paid by the govnt,TO IDI DAMOI am sure wen cumin they told u that u will b living freely in the hostel,tho we pay others pay as much as 1000 plus dollars pay yr,aint the govnt suppose to tek cr of that ,aint i wonder wich BC u refer to bt i neva got it in 4mnths,its owez 5,do ur calcs well,anyway the point is ,we r nt difrent from studs at unza,coz even at unza their top ups are being increased, y cnt our be too,or are u sayin that ours are top ups while unza n cbu are are nt,, ???

    I have seen and heard a lot of students go on scholarships and I will be going on one next year. I have never heard of a scholarship where the Zambian Government tops up. We have students at college who have also been demanding for sponsorship from GRZ but to no avail. I believe if Government has to send students abroad where it is actually paying for the students then it should be for skill that cannot be obtained locally because of the expenses involved

      I for one am telling you this because I study here and I know how the system works, these are goverment offered scholarships, not scholarships being offered by private institutions in conjunction with state owned universities. Do you understand now? or do i have to use source code?

    we know some of you have been waiting for this time to fire back because you were not picked to study in Russia..its not our fault that they didnt pick you..sending students to Russia is the agreement of zambian Government and the Russian to strengths they relationship..so you bloggers you must think before sending that dull heads of yours to work..  

  31. vote

    I agree with Gucci, think twice before you let your emotions fly. as for Ernest, the scholarship u are being provided with is one given by a private agency in conjunction with state owned universities.

    in the first place selection criteria for studying abroad is very questionable. not many zambians know about this opportunity and only those with connections are the ones who benefit. however govt should not abandon its responsibilty over the students even if they are MMD carders’ children or they are carders themselves

    @ Ernest 31 Most the scholarships abroad which come through Bursaries Committee are taken care of by the host country. This includes Tuition, Lodging, Medical Insurance and a living allowance.However in many instances the host country does not provide an air ticket and the living allowance is meager and this is where GRZ comes in. Hence the name top up allowance.Very few scholarships are lucrative with lots of upkeep money at least those which come through B.C.Scholarships with good financial incentives are very very competitive!

    Sir Simunyola is talking like a retard!!! He is probably retarded…you think people who are studying in russia are not zambians whose parents pay tax back home? After completing our studies here in russia, we are going back home to work for mother zambia, and we deserve good studying conditions, being in a foreign country is not a joke, in russia to be specific. So, Sir Simunyola shut your ass if u ain’t got nothing positive to contribute to solving this problem, you think everyone is in the US where everything is going smooth like you? The above stated problem is really big and has to be attended to by the govt as soon as possible.

    @ Barussia, 79 I completed my Master’s degree from India not more than 6 months ago under the Indian government scholarship through B.C. I was given A return air ticket,free accommodation, I did not pay any tuition, I had medical coverage from the university clinic and any other government hospital, i got 12000 rupees( $270) a year for book allowance which BTW is more than enough to purchase books in India, Additional 7000 rupees ( $155) for my thesis printing, photocopy etc and an upkeep of 5000 rupees which was not enough but was supplemented by the $250 a month from GRZ. Any blogger who has been on an ICCR Scholarship will agree with me. You can also check for yourself the benefits of the ICCR scholarship from this link :http://www.iccrindia.net/studentwelfare.html!

    @ Barussia . 79 to continue I am currently in China under the Chinese Government Scholarship program. I do not pay for tuition, accommodation, i get a monthly allowance and I have medical insurance. There are two ways of getting the Chinese government firstly those which come through B.C and secondly directly from the universities and I got mine through the latter. So in my case I do not get top up from GRZ. The main reason they sited is that since I was sponsored in India I need to work for two years before being sponsored again. I said F.U.C.K to that and I came here. The money the Chinese give is sufficient for upkeep and you can extra money here which of course many foreign students do. Teaching English, modeling etc. Some guys work as Dj’s and some do trading with links back home!!

    Russia is the best place to go if u want engineering courses.

    To people who don’t know about Russia.
    Chinese,South Korea,vietnam,iran,Syria,Libya etc all send students to Russia.Russia was the first country to find electricity just to make our Unza students more aware.In addition to that most lacturers at Unza are from Russia.

    To all those who claim that they will come back to work in Zambaia after completing ur studies in Russia (or india?), my message to u is that: you don’t NEED Russian education to work and contribute to develpmt of zambia. Russssssian education system is best suited and applied to the country of Russia, and not Zambia. Thats why u fail to perfom when u come back. If u want to prove me, jst do a random survey, to compare the productivity of those studied abroad and those who went to CBU/UNZA.
    -So principally speaking, its not justifiable to continue sending students to Russia for a first degree!

    And its quite unfortunate to hear some pipo screaming loud here.Suggesting that the $1000 per semester is ok.This is not a maternity ward or a mourning place.I kno u re looking @ it frm the Zambian angle(The mentality even diplomats stil can’t fight).U might even have multiplied it with some figure close to 5000 and u realised the product wud inevitably afford u a 50 yr old Japanese wheelbarrow.Maybe u try to look @ it frm the European angle?Well,u don’t ve to close yo eyes to imagine hw very different economies can be!!!No surprise tho that u will still choose to ignore the truth on the ground.But God help u so that u don’t find yourself in a similar uncomfortable situation in which case u’ll be the first one to castigate the leaders and hurl a sea of unheard insults.

    Mr.Simunyola,sorry 2 react but I thnk yo threads ve raised more unnecessary dust than providng object & mature counsel.Indeed the Bible makes it clear wen it says “There is accomplishment where there is a multitude of councilors”.Be a councilor!!And another adage goes like “A problem shared is a problem (half)solved.Now in yo own personal understandng & judgement, u ve deliberately chosen 2 castigate the pipo bringing the problem.Why?We re not competng wth our fellow UNZA/CBU studs.NO!!!If anythng they all wud lyk 2 come here 4 there 1st degrees.Its strange hw u ve found ths letter a podium 4 u 2 exhaust yo condensed anger against us.Is it an opportune tym 4 u 2 start pouring out yo grudges now that we ask 4 our meager entitlement?Does it make u hapi 2 see us struggle 4 no reason?

    but mulasabayila guyz even wen u dont av anything to tok about .ka $1000 finishes in one week after getting paid.and some of us pay huge amounts of money for hostels in which we live.the universities dont care hw much yo govorment pays u,the only thing they care about is u payin yo dues on time.n in some hostels if u dont pay on time they wil get back the room key frm u n chase u outside the hostel n they wont allow u to get in again untill u pay .they dont care where u will go [email protected] sir simunyola i dont know y ur being so negative about everything but i bliv u know y in yo heart.wat i cant tell is dat t we appreciate the little our goverment is givin us,but we nid an increment bcause the commodities here increase every year n dats nt our fault.the goverment brought us here.

    To hell with all your saying our families should help,scholarshps is for vulnareble but viable students .How do you expect my father who takes care of 6 children,pays rent and has to travel to and fro work and worse still his net salary is 3 million to send me money?…..
