“Education is the most powerful weapon that you can use to change the world.” – Nelson Mandela
An MP at work – Dr. Jonas Chanda-Bwana Mukubwa member of parliament
The favourite part of my work as Member of Parliament is to visit schools and give career motivational talks to pupils from grade 1 to grade 12, telling them that they can become EVERYTHING they dream of through EDUCATION – a great equaliser in life!
“I’m a product of Masala and Mushili townships who went to Masala Primary and Masala Secondary Schools and University of Zambia to become a Medical Doctor, an expatriate in various countries, and now a Member of Parliament,” I tell the pupils.
QUANTITY, QUALITY and ACCESS have to be guaranteed for a good educational system to transform HUMAN RESOURCES into INTELLECTUAL CAPITAL – the most important factor of production.
This week I visited various schools, gave career talks, donated books and funds to completion of classroom blocks under construction – Yengwe Basic School (Kavu/Kang’onga), Chalubemba Primary School (new 2 classroom block to be opened on 22nd June), Katondo Secondary School (Munkulungwe), Twatemwa primary school (Kantolomba) and Joyous Community primary school (Mushili)
