Zambia needs educated leaders-Chansa

General News Zambia needs educated leaders-Chansa

The National Action for Quality Education in Zambia says Zambia needs to be governed by politicians who have attained reasonable education.

Mr Chansa said leaders must be champions of quality education.

In a statement, Mr Chansa access to quality education in Zambia has over the years been a huge challenge, especially for children from economically disadvantaged families.

“This mammoth problem has been there despite some notable investments in the sector.
NAQEZ therefore feels encouraged when the republican president strongly pledges to ensure that quality education is availed to all eligible Zambian children,” Mr Chansa said.

“We welcome this pronouncement and want to implore the two ministries of education to help realize this dream by recruiting more Teachers and Lecturers, constructing more Schools and Universities, purchasing school computers as well motivating Teachers.”

Mr Chansa said his organisation commends President Edgar Lungu for emphasizing the importance of education by refusing to side with few individuals who have not been comfortable with the grade 12 constitutional requirement for those wanting to run for political office.

“On this important score, the president needs a lot of support by all forward-looking Zambians,” he said.


  1. The minimum qualification for a presidential candidate and one aspiring to be running mate(vice president) must be a first degree and this should enshrined in the constitution. It will be very retrogressive to have someone like GBM as vice president! The man lacks a lot in terms of intellect.

  2. Well said mr chansa. 2021 general elections i suggest a minimum of first degree. What do u think comrades??
