Mwinilunga District Commissioner Daniel Bukali has urged teachers in the area to desist from engaging themselves into partisan politics.
Mr. Bukali warned that those that will engage in partisan politics risk being flushed out of the teaching fraternity.
He said it was not correct for teachers, who are civil servants to antagonize government by directing their energies into partisan politics at the expense of service delivery.
He said those interested in politics must resign from their positions.
The District Commissioner sounded the warning in Mwinilunga today during an interactive meeting with over 80 head teachers from government schools across the district.
Mr. Bukali said he will not sit idle and watch people employed to serve the public continue politicking instead of professionally executing the work they were employed for.
He also advised all civil servants in the district to change their attitude towards work and public functions by stopping shunning, reporting for work late and knocking off early before the stipulated time respectively.
And speaking on behalf of the teachers, Lunga day school head teacher Lwiza Samakesa pledged to support the government of the day and be professional in their execution of duty.
Mrs. Samakesa thanked government for the much needed support rendered to many schools such as procurement of teaching and learning material saying this will help them implement the new revised school curriculum and improve learner performance in the district.
