The opposition FDD has charged that Education, Science and Technology Minister Dr Michael Kaingu has lamentably failed to run the education sector because he is incompetent.
FDD Spokesman Antonio Mwanza said in an interview that the education sector has been in disarray since Dr Kaingu was appointed as Minister.
Mr Mwanza has since appealed to President Edgar Lungu to fire Dr Kaingu if he is serious about managing the affairs at the Ministry of Education.
He said there has never been a single week in which the three public universities have run smoothly with Dr Kaingu at the helm.
“This proves that the man is a failure, he has lamentably failed to provide leadership and the sector is now in disarray. Almost every week, there is a new crisis emerging either at UNZA, CBU or Mulungushi Universities,” Mr Mwanza said.
He said Zambians should never expect any efficiency in the education sector as long as Dr Kaingu remains Minister.
“This Minister has been a total failure with handling of education matters, there has not been any single week where universities have run smoothly, everything has collapsed,” Mr Mwanza said.
He said Dr Kaingu has been ineffective, incompetent and lacks seriousness to run the education sector and must be fired immediately.
