Many parents and guardians in Lusaka’s Bauleni Compound do not see the value of taking their children to school because they are financially handicapped.

According to a Bauleni resident Timothy Lungu parents in Bauleni Township cannot afford to pay schools fees for their children adding that the situation makes them not to appreciate the value of educating a child.

Lungu also bemoaned the increase of bars in the area which has contributed to the decaying of the moral fabric among the youth especially those that have not had the opportunity to go to school.

“Parents cannot afford to pay schools fees for their children adding that the situation makes them not to appreciate the value of educating a child” Lungu said

And another Bauleni resident Rosemary Mwela said some teenage mothers in the area are deprived of their right from benefitting the reentry policy that Government introduced for the girl-child who falls pregnant whilst in school.

Meanwhile, Amos Banda of Bauleni has implored government and Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) to set up recreational facilities in the community to curb immorality which the youth fall prey to.

  4. These are the consequences of corruption. It misallocates resources (stolen) and dislocates society.( The wrong people are in the right positions (Lungu and the rest) and the right and talented people are ether languishing in the streets or in prisons). In addition corruption creates an unfair playing field and takes away the incentive to work hard.

  5. All developing countries should offer free Education for primary school. It’s a bedrock for the development of human resource. You expect to reduce early marriages, AIDS epidemic, unemployment, prison population by not offering free primary Education?? You better think again.

  6. They residents are too poor to send their children to school and yet bars are “mushrooming”. Where do they get the money to spend on alcohol?? Wrong priorities I think.

  8. These are the scums who were singing ati Infintu Ni Lungu.
    So, let them suffer and enjoy the PF rule.

    Allowing re-entry just encourages more pregnancies and mass-breeding of children the teen-mothers cannot look after.
    Solution is they should not get pregnant in the first place, especially with so much protection these days.
    Second solution is either schools should have focused lessons on such issues.
    Third solution is that girls should start carrying condoms in their handbags for emergencies or accidental situations.

  9. This is unfortunate for the children and a violation of their right to education, yet the constituency receives millions every year, MPs get huge allowances but there is no money to provide basic education for all. We still have misplaced priorities because education is the best investment that any nation van give to her children.

    • I totally agree with you – Mwalimu Nyerere of Kenya once said and i quote ” How do you get money to the poor? You give their children a good education”off quote. During Kaunda’s time, the moral values of many adolescents were sober because alot of them were attending school. What has greatly contributed to moral decay among the youth is that they have alot of idol time and naturally they have to find something to do and unfortunately it is being involved in wrong vices. The Govt is largely to blame.

  10. I don’t care who’s president, as long as they are not working for the poor they are in my cross hairs of rebuke and criticism.
    We need some one to lift the social standard of living for the poor communities and bring them up to levels of current World civilisation and that especially for housing, sanitation-water, health care, education and modern farming methods for the rural folks.

  14. I have seen people suing each other over conjugal rights.They should know that conjugal rights come about with a responsibility.The children sired should be looked after by responsibility derived from conjugal union.It is pointless suing each other of denial of these rights when what comes out is a burden to be shouldered by both parties.It is the responsibility of parents to feed,educate,clothe and shelter their children.Just like it was the responsibility of KK and his friend to fight for our independence.There was no one else who could do such a noble job apart from them.Parents should fight for their children.

  16. It’s not Bauleni compound going through these hardships of poverty and kids not attending schools, the entire country is facing the same challenges so there is one simple solution for these problems, asking all registered voters to think twice before casting the vote. PF, MMD, HH’s party, UNIP and those useless money hurting parties will never bring or change sh!t only them politicians pockets and bank accounts . Please help the need and make change by helping your neighbor . Love you all God bless our Country
