Some of the computers handed over to Namuseba Primary School in Monze District today by Zambia National Building Society (ZNBS) in a bid to complement government’s efforts to spearhead Information, communication and Technology (ICTs) learning in schools.

A Zambian in diaspora Pascal Nsokolo has donated ten desk top computers worth thousands of kwacha to four institutions in Mbala District in Northern province.

District Commissioner, Kedrick Sikombe confirmed this to ZANIS in an interview in Mbala.He said that St Mary’s college has received five computers, while three have been donated to the local authority.

Three computers have been given to Mbala secondary school while one has gone to Kaka secondary.

The District Commissioner thanked the Mr Nsokolo for the donation saying the gesture should be emulated by others as it would go a long way in providing the needed education service in the area.

He has since warned the community to guard the computers that have been purchased at huge amounts of money.

    • Iwe this is better than nothing. These can be the thin line between being computer literate and lack thereof. Muletasha. Chances are that you have never donated even a simple egg to people in need.

    • This is whats called madness…. in Germany here they pay you to take them away because that is pure JUNK which produces harmful mercury after it stays for a long time in storage. Yet i hear celebration.

      Ndi wakula na KASANDA, ndi wakulamwa ukufuma ku unya wako, utaizewanya.
      Nsokolo waomba sana. Watuzyula swensi. Tuini swensi tucite vino Nsokolo wacita. That is what you call helping others on what God has helped you on.

  2. Yes it is a gift, but it’s junk! The reason why our ICT sector remains behind is because we are using donated junk. If you are an IT professional like my self you can understand the type of these computers donated. From the looks these computers cannot power modern software (maybe Microsoft office suites for typing your documents) that is essential in building ones coding skills or ICT skills. If you are willing to upgrade your phone to a new one because it is slow and cannot install or support certain apps then you will understand what am saying about time and upgrade. Its fine if they are going to be stripped for hands on training on “how to build a PC.”

    • Spot on @ Sir Boston. In fact looking at those relics, who even uses a floppy disk these days or even CD-roms. Then when those poor children see a laptop, they will be confused!

    • @ Returning Citizen you have also seen ka? It should not mean that if a school is in the village or outskirts then it deserves less, no way!

  3. The time has moved on, please Mr Nsokolo try not to help in the Dumping of materials from the developed world. Those units are only good for nothing. No one uses those monitors anymore. We know you want publicity for MP campaign but be sincere do not demean your own countrymen for your own selfish ends.

  4. If anyone has these kinds of monitor it is those who have kept them from the dinousosurous age. But to try and give these as donations it is iniquitous and should be avoided. Mr Nsokolo you have lived in the UK and you know very well. This is sad indeed.
