What is it has HH done so differently that make you people spend sleepless night about HH alone? Leave him alone, he is not part of whatever is going on now. Are you not satisfied with your election gimmicks? What more do you want? Its too much, you are nauseating even those of us who are none partisan.

  7. Mr. President just come out of hiding and accept that you are a failed president.

    So in your drunken state choosing Provincial ministers amounts to choosing a cabinet.

Kumalabo of stinking politicians who thought would win elections by dividing Zambians on tribal lines. The Majority of Zambians are above tribal politics hence they could not allow this cattle rustler to govern. Let him concentrate on hugging Maureen.

  10. Most bloggers typify Zambian mentality! The issue is the appointment of provincial ministers and instead of commentary on maybe the strengths and weaknesses of the appointments/appointees the comments have diverted to HH and Lungu! Just as when instead of demanding to know what each candidate in an elect stands for people would rather compare who among the candidates looks handsome or ugly for choice.

  11. OPEN LETTER TO THE MINISTRY OF EDUCATION

    ATTENTION PROVINCIAL EDUCATION OFFICER ‘MUCHINGA PROVINCE”- NAKONDE DEBS’ OFFICE.

    Dear Government;
    RE: ROOM CRISES AT NTINDI PRIMARY SCHOOL IN NAKONDE DISTRICT AS TEACHERS REFUSE ACCEPTING PUPILS ON TRANSFER.

    We Nakonde parents write to complain to you over the room pupil population crises at our local government school (Ntindi Primary). This has been caused mainly by the creation of the secondary school within the premises of Ntindi Primary. We know nixing secondary school to the already existing primary schools is a government policy which is supposed to be held and supported by us stakeholders. But what has happened at Ntindi School is worse than solving the problem of secondary school.

    • CONT:

      We understand that according to the Ministry of Education, currently; Ntindi Primary School has the highest pupil population in Zambia with 4000 pupils from Pre School to Grade 7. This has made the average number of pupils per class to be 130 to 140, something extremely abnormal and alarming in our country setup as a third world nation.
      Now what a lot of parents are annoyed is the decision that has been taken by the Administration of Ntindi Primary School of not allowing our children on transfer to be admitted in school giving a reason that places are full in all Grades. This dear Ministry has made our work difficult as parents especially us Police Officers and Nurses who have been depending on this school for the education of our children.

    • A lot of children for civil servants in other government departments have been denied places at Ntindi Primary School by the School Management hence the children are now just at home doing nothing as they have been denied places at Ntindi which is the only nearby school. This is worse to the parents that are not working as they are no alternative of taking their children to private schools due to lack of money. Because of the refusal of the school places by the school management, a lot of children have now stopped learning and have just resorted to delinquent behavior no doing peace works as well as stealing. The situation at Ntindi School is 10 times worse as I am describing it. The situation has defeated government policy of having all the children above the age of 7 to have primary educ

    • CONTINUATION:

      We therefore urge the government through the Ministry of Education to move in and arrest the situation before it is too late. Where can we be taking our children if all teachers refuse to accept our children’s transfers? The teachers at this school are notoriously fame and not understanding as such, they would not allow any child on transfer to have a place in their school. We have been reporting to the Local DC and the DEBS but surprisingly no action has been taken to alleviate the problem.

    • Surrounding Parents have themselves voted to be paying K100 per households of which it has been done but sadly up to now, no foundation for the building of the 1 x 3 Classroom Block has been laid by the School PTA. The School PTA is actually frustrating the efforts of the parents by not implementing what they promise the parents during Annual General Meetings. Because of this, some of the parents that want to pay are still withholding their K100.00 and have vowed to only release it after the School Parent Teacher Association Executive has started the construction. We urge the Office of the DEBS to advise the School Manager to begin the construction since a good number of parents have already paid the money towards the same. It is demoralizing for the committed parents that have paid K100 e

    • Having reported a lot of issues to necessary authorities, our request, demand and resolution as Parents sending children to Ntindi Primary School are as follows;
      1. The government through the Ministry of Education should consider shifting Ntindi Secondary School to an independent site so that the rooms which are being used by the Grades 8 to 12 pupils can be given to the Primary Section to decongest the worst congested school in Zambia. Currently children at this school are learning like slaves or prisoners at due to limited classrooms for the Primary Section. Ntindi School has a very big piece of land just behind the other classroom block which can be developed into secondary school instead of the secondary school continuing to squeeze themselves in infrasture of the primary school at…

      0

      0
    • CONTINUATION:

      2. The government should ensure that the school authority should be made to start utilizing the funds that have been voluntarily donated by parents to increase the classroom blocks in the school.
      3. The government should consider funding the Primary School for the construction of the two 1×3 classroom blocks. The parents of so far constructed three 1×3 classroom blocks. The Ntindi school parents are doing enough in having the classroom blocks increased but there is no motivation from the central government to help the parents build more classroom blocks.

      0

      0
    • CONTINUATION:

      4. The DEBS Office should issue a directive to the Ntindi Primary school Head teacher to stop denying pupils coming on transfer from other schools. The pupils from other schools coming on transfer should be enrolled at the school and denying them places is not a good solution of solving the accommodation problems at school but constructing more classroom blocks is the answer.

      0

      0
    • CONTINUATION:

      5. Ntindi Primary school should be divided into two with two head teachers. Personally, I have been a teacher for 45 years and I am now retired and I have worked nearly in all nine provinces of Zambia and I have never seen not alone hearing of a primary school with about 4000 pupils. This tells you that such a number is unprecedented in the history of Zambian education. So such a number must be probably under 2 or 3 Head teachers and not one as the case is currently with Ntindi School. Management of the school is very difficult in such a case. Separating the school in two or three can be the solution to this problem provided more classroom blocks are constructed by the government.

      0

      0
    • CONTINUATION:

      Kindly take our request seriously because if this diplomacy fails, then about 1000 parents will be allowed to march to the DEBS and DC Offices in solidarity to have the issues resolved. So we have written this letter in order to have our challenges sorted out by your Ministry.
      We believe that, our newly elected President His Excellency Edgar Chagwa Lungu will intervene in the challenges that Nakonde Parents are facing especially those that have no alternative school to take their children.

      0

      0
    • CONTINUATION (END)

      The government should urgently build another school with 40 classrooms near Ntindi Primary School to help decongest Ntindi Primary School. Otherwise, our children are really suffering at that school. You can imagine 4000 Primary School Children using only 12 0r 14 toilets. Where in Zambia? The Parents are planning to demonstrate to the DC and the Nakonde DEBS if the government does not address our challenges in the earliest possible time. Indeed we have now ran out of patience, we fear for the lives of our children.

      PLEASE OUR PRESIDENT, ANSWER OUR CRY AS NAKONDE PARENTS, WE ARE AT YOUR KNEES DESPERATELY SEEKING YOUR QUICK RESPONSE.
      WRITTEN BY CONCERNED PARENTS OF NAKONDE REPRESENTING 1000 PARENTS.

      THE END OF OUR CRY/REQUEST.

      THANKS IN ADVANCE.

  12. Wisdom is the benchmark of achieving remarkable successes in life thus, without it, it is impossible to make any tangible achievements. Zambia is endowned with a lot of natural wealth which can enable the country to move a step forward in development but alas, the majority of its people despite the sound education they have achieved lack wisdom and end up making wrong choices as a result deprive the country of its correct roadmap to development. Then we have another group which comprise the majority of the majority, the empty tins who just yap anyhow. For instance, what connection has Hakainde Hichilema in the subject above that he can be baptised with insults ? Lungu is the President and if there are any mistakes, its Lungu who is doing them and HH has got no connection to that.

You will remain sufferers while supporting unprogressive movements because you still live in the stone age where tribalism was the sole subject but with no meaningful scores. HH has got wealth and he can still survive even if he is not elected to the presidency but with some of you, what have you achieved in life apart from the language of insults and tribalism which you learnt from your parents even before you were born. Its part of your inheritance and thats why you grace it.

  15. Lungu must stop poaching MPs from the Opposition. It is unconstitutional in a multi-party democracy. It kills the spitit of pluralism. Instead, Lungu should use nomination powerts to fill representations in areas where he is lacking. He has done it for Sata and Mwanakatwe, why does he need to poach when it comes to Western and North-Western Province? Let him drop Kafwaya and Njeulu for the sake promoting the multi-party dispensation!

    • “He has a degree in one of the most difficult fields i.e. Law” The most difficult degrees are those in the fields that require Mathematics as a prerequisite for enrollment such as Sciences including Medicine and Engineering. A lot of students fail to do well in Mathematics. Countries like China and India are fast catching up with the USA, where lawyers come by the dozen, because of their emphasis on the training of technocrats. However the job of being a president depends on how well one leads his people rather than on ones profession. Zambia should place emphasis on the teaching of Mathematics to develop. No country has developed wi thout technocrats.

We are all God’s children and we need to love one another, it doesn’t matter which political party one is supporting. Everyone has the right to belong to a political party of his/her choice.

  25. Your excellence, as you finalize your Cabinet and making strategic changes, please ensure that you don’t listen to those who misled our late President Mr. Sata simply because they sympathize with certain individuals even when it is apparent that the same never supported you and your Presidency campaign bid.

    We know a lot of CEOs and former Ministers are busy trying to lobby for them to keep their jobs but the truth is, they had their chance and let others who capable be given a chance to run with you considering that many Zambians have a lot of faith in your new leadership.

    Already some of your appointments are good whilst others aren’t and am sure you can still rethink. From the people who have come to justify their jobs, a lot leaves to be desired but we know you are a wise man.
