Government has cautioned parents against engaging local and foreign agents to facilitate the enrollment of their children in universities in China.

ZANIS reports that Zambia’s Ambassador to China Winnie Chibesakunda issued the warning following rising alarming numbers of privately sponsored Zambian students being duped by unscrupulous agents.

Ambassador Chibesakunda regretted that many students have been denied entry into university on account of agents remiting less fees to the universities.

She said such students have been detained awaiting deportation back home.

The Zambian envoy explained that government has been unable to quickly come to the aid of such students due to non budgetary allocation.

She however pointed out that government is doing the best it can to assist affected students in repartriating them back home.

She appealed to Zambian parents seeking tertiary education for their children to exercise caution and desist from engaging dubious agents who disappear after receiving payments for onward remission.

Ambassador ChibesaKunda said she will be engaging relevant authorities and line ministries to create an institute that will solely facilitate the recruit and enrollment of Zambian students into Universities in China.
