Various stakeholders who include Chiefs and elected officials in Kawambwa District have resolved to name Luapula Province’s first ever Girls Technical High School after President Edgar Lungu.

The Technical High School is being constructed in Sub Chief Kabanda’s area by China Harbour under the 142 million United States dollars contract for the Kawambwa-Mporokoso road.

Minister of Housing and Infrastructure Development Ronald Chitotela says the coming of the technical high school will be a relief to Luapula Province which currently has no technical high school.

Mr. Chitotela says China Harbour is scheduled to hand over the school to government within 24 months.

The Minister has also disclosed that the high cases of early pregnancies and school drop outs are expected to reduce once more girls are encouraged to stay in school.

And Sub Chief Kabanda of the Chishinga speaking of Kawambwa District says the coming of the Girls Technical School is a confirmation that his area is now a priority in government’s agenda.

Sub-Chief Kabanda says in the past, his chiefdom never received any development and the coming of schools and clinics just confirms that President Lungu loves people in rural areas.

President Edgar Lungu commissioned the construction of the 142 kilometers Kawambwa-Mporokoso road last month.

Apart from constructing the road and the Girls Technical High School, China Harbour will also rehabilitate a hospital, build another school and construct township roads in Mporokoso within the 12 months contract period.

  6. Luapula Province has Musonda Falls Girls Technical School. Its not true that the school to constructed will be the first technical girls in Luapula. Either Hon Chitotela is ignorant or Lusaka Times is reporting false news. get your facts correct.

  7. You would have thought that naming a girls’ high school after an educated and famous Zambian female would have made sense… one way to empower women to be successful is through naming institutions such as this one after a famous and educated Zambian female. They should have asked the women of Zambia to come up with a name, for God’s sake. Some people learn through the art of association and I don’t think one has much positive things to learn from this male character.

  9. So no research done before planning and no democratic voting over the choice of a girl’ school? It beggars belief!!! Only dictators fantasize about naming places after themselves….narcissists and those with attachment issues .
