Government has released K44 million towards the construction of seven new trades training institutions in districts that did not previously have any training institute.

Ministry of Higher Education Spokesperson Chiselwa Kawanda said this is in line with Government’s policy initiative to have at least “One Trades Training Institute per District.”

Ms. Kawanda said additional three institutions have been constructed to replace old facilities in three districts.

“Government has also continued to fund projects and infrastructure development in the ministry, the latest funding being K44, 000,000 for the month of March and April 2016. The funding is for Universities, Collages and Trades Training institutes,” she said.

Ms. Kawanda said the new institutions are being constructed in Mwense, Mporokoso, Kalabo, Sesheke, Mumbwa, Isoka and Lundazi while the institutions to replace old facilities were constructed in Chipata, Choma and Mwinilunga.

“This is in line with Government‘s policy to ensuring that all the districts in the country have has a government training institution and access to skills is improved. Among the seven new institutions being constructed under the Trades Training Institute per District campaign, two are near completion and these are in Isoka and Kalabo.”

  1. How much will PF steal on these inflated contracts? Will Lungu get his 50% kickbacks from the contractors?

    • First create industries that require the graduates you want to train, The problem is that there are no JOBS and the learning standards in schools have gone to the dogs.
      No Labs in High schools, Books etc ending up producing kids who can not read or seen a tripled stand.

  2. By the time this money reaches the intend purpose – materials, labour etc. It will 10 million. The rest would have been looted and some used for attempted election rigging which they will fail because the voices are loud and clear. Lungu has been fired by the Zambian people. And why just before elections??
