Government has revealed its plans to procure over 100 motor vehicles for the Ministry of Education in the country.

Education Deputy Minister Sydney Mushanga made a revelation when he met with Northern Province Permanent Secretary Hlobotha Nkunika and Provincial Education Officer Jobbicks Kalumba before gracing this year’s graduation ceremony at Lukasha trades training institute in Kasama today.

Mr Mushanga said government is alive to the transport challenge the education sector was going through in the country.

He added that government is therefore committed to ensuring that it improves the working conditions by providing all the necessary needs in the sector.

The Education Deputy Minister said it is in this vein that government is planning to buy one hundred and fifteen (115) vehicles for the Ministry to be distributed across the country.

He said the vehicles will be purchased as soon as funds are released from the treasury.

Mr Mushanga further said government is also aware of other challenges faced by the education sector and that it is committed to addressing most of them.

He also assured the people of Northern Province that government is working on modalities to fulfil its promise of building a university in the province.

Meanwhile, Mr Nkunika thanked government for assuring people in the area with a university which has been waited for for a long time.

He said the move by government to build a university has come at a right time when people needed the facility most.

  1. Please no more borrowing for new infrastructure projects (promised University in Northern province). Borrow only for manufacturing investments.

    • Who are they trying to f00l these PF f00ls?

      I am alive to the fact that these vehicles being procured are for the 2016 campaigns which PF has already started.

      So PF would rather buy vehicles than spend money to keep the institutions of higher learning open. What kind of thinking is this if its not uchichimbwi no plan??

      Folks 2016 PF kuyabebele no ifs no buts.

      Vote UPND and HH to restore Zambia to its past glory.

      Viva UPND and HH.

  4. Use some of that money to buy computers for students! Vehicles are misused and not always used for the jobs they are bought for!

  5. Really? Are these vehicles priority compared to securing schools computers so that grade nine can prepare for their exams come October.Wouldnt the said money go a long way in upgrading community where pupils take turns to learn in a single grass thatched room.Wouldnt the same be used to improve sanitation in certain schools where the same is deplorable to cite but very few examples?
    Surely our pyramid of priorites seem upside down here.
