UPND Chairperson for Information and Publicity Charles Kakoma has said that it is a shame that that countries such as Rwanda, war torn even in the 1990s, is now far better in Information and Technology infrastructure than the so called peaceful Zambia.

In a statement released to the media in reaction that to a story that Grade 9 pupils had to wait till midnight to write ICT exams due to lack of computers, Mr Kakoma said that introducing compulsory computer lessons and examination is one policy that his party warned the PF Government that it would not work due to a lack of facilities, which has now only worsened due to current load shedding.

Below is the full statement

When we advise our friends in the PF to implement projects and ideas with a thorough and well thought out plan they claim we are bitter.

The case of introducing compulsory computer lessons and examination is one policy that we warned them would not work due to a lack of facilities, which has now only worsened due to current load shedding.

The PF have been risking the future prospects of our children across the country by making them sit for these exams sometimes until the early hours of the morning and without food. How do we expect children to have good grades when they are writing their exams half asleep?

The same President Edgar Lungu was busy insulting and threatening teachers across the country if they decampaign him. How does he expect any teacher to be cheering for him when they are being subjected to such poor working conditions?

Our teachers and civil servants are already facing serious economic hardships and now we add such inhuman treatment to both teachers and our children.

The money the PF leaders are using gallivanting the world in private jets would go a long way in purchasing computers for schools and some gensets. The same could be said for the money spent on the more than 30 parliamentary by elections since 2011.

What a shame that countries such as Rwanda, war torn even in the 1990s, is now far better in Information and Technology infrastructure than the so called peaceful Zambia.

If the PF cannot plan for such matters, how do we expect them to deal with issues of mine joblessness, high inflation, economic diversification programmes and job creation?

  2. Ba Kakoma
    It’s easier said than done, so you mean every new implementations have no challenges? Anyway come 2016, you chaps have to be erased from our political landscape because you have no value.
    How did Rwanda get to where it is today? Know your facts before you comment on each issue. You just noise makers if you didn’t know.

    • School children writing IT exams under candle light! What a circus of a country. Rwanda has made tremendous progress because the country is run by knowledgeable and patriotic leaders. This is not the case with Zambia.

  3. I need to mention something for you Kakoma. I am not partisan as I think that is a concept irrelevant to the Zambian Setup. If you did your homework you would find out that the most successful countries or territories on earth are those that have gone through some kind of territory-wide catastrophe or tragedy. Rwanda would be a laughing stock if they did not come out of their ordeal on top. Look at other territories; Germany, Israel, South Korea, Japan, Britain, France, USA, even South Africa. Peace is not the prerequisite of innovation. Even Google can show you that the most useful innovations were discovered during or for war purposes; sit on your peaceful behind and you shall not see the necessity to develop a helicopter for example. I know for you political friends to see as if you…

  5. @Crooked I:GOING BY YOUR NAME, YOU ARE INDEED CROOKED. YOU HAVE CLAIMED THAT YOU ARE NOT PARTISAN BUT BY READING YOUR COMMENTS IT IS CRYSTAL CLEAR THAT YOU ARE PF. THERE IS NOTHING WRONG WITH YOU BEING PF AS IT IS WITHIN YOUR DEMOCRATIC RIGHT TO BELONG TO A PARTY OF YOUR CHOICE BUT IT IS MORALY WRONG TO LIE THAT YOU ARE NOT PARTISAN.
    LEST YOU DIN’T KNOW, MALAYSIA AND SINGAPORE DIDN’T EXPERIENCE ANY CATASTROPHE OR TRAGEDY TO BE WHERE THEY ARE NOW. BOTSWANA IS DOING BETTER THAN ZAMBIA, WHAT TRAGEDY DID THEY EXPERIENCE? THE PF CULTURE OF EXCUSES AND COMPARING TO OTHER COUNTRIES IS ILLOGICAL AND SHALLOW.

  7. Zambians are no longer backward when it comes to voting. The problem in upnd is that being a tonga is the number one qualification for one to be its president then academical papers and experience are added advantage. Hh knws this that’s why he called canicius banda and gbm as a make up to make upnd as not being a tribal and regional party, but zambians are aware ot that. Furthermore, despite bringing GBM and Canicius Banda the Upnd tonga supporters in particular have continued to insult Bembas and calling thems thievs because of the hate they had for the late president Sata, Davice Chama and Mumbi Phiri. Because of this Luapula muchinga northern C.belt including eastern can’t join upnd. Unfortunately hh is said to be a satanist, tribalist and a fee manson zambians have heard these…
