The Ministry of General Education has directed the two Principals at the Kitwe College of Education to immediately stop discharging their duties as government seeks a solution to the leadership impasse at the institution.

General Education Minister David Mabumba says the matter will be resolved in two weeks’ time when he returns to the institution.

There is Drama at the Kitwe College of Education as two people are holding on to the position of Principal at the institution.

Recently the Teaching Service Commission transferred Kitwe College of Education Principal Andrew Mutobo from his position to Assistant Director Teacher Education and Specialized Services at the ministry of general education headquarters in Lusaka replacing him with Kitwe District Education Board Secretary Allan Kaoma.
But Dr. Mutobo has refused to move from his position saying the Teaching Service Commission has no authority to transfer him

And Mr. Mabumba has held his ministry accountable for the leadership wrangle that has engulfed the college in the past two weeks.

Mr. Mabumba has also directed the Vice Principal to Act as interim Principal while his ministry arrives at a solution over the matter.

He has also urged lecturers at the institution to remain committed to carrying out their duties and not use the current wrangle as an excuse not to work.

He was speaking when he held a meeting with lecturers at the Training Institution in Kitwe.

Speaking during the same event, Kitwe District Commissioner Binwell Mpundu said it is saddening that the institution has been engulfed in leadership struggles that have disturbed learners at the institution.


  1. Looks like he’s the member of upnd where people never want to move. Typical example of upnd. Am sure this man is upnd.

  2. Its time people started retiring, people are so eager for promotions, things have been on stand still for a long time after adjustment of retirement age. Hope the line starts moving next year April. 60 is the age, 65 patali. Only issue is our constitution says immediately one retires, they need to be given their package or they remain on pay role. Now…that may postpone retirement to 65 years, meaning more waiting… Chifundo ine
