Luapula Province Minister Nickson Chilangwa called on school teachers to help government correct misinformation about the country’s economy in areas they operate from.

Speaking when he addressed teachers in Kawambwa Central Constituency, Mr. Chilangwa said like other civil servants, teachers are duty – bound to explain not only to pupils but also parents about the positive economic outlook of Zambia.

The minister who is also the area member of Parliament explained that society holds teachers in high esteem and whatever they say is taken as gospel truth hence the need for them to give correct information about the country.

He cautioned teachers not to be agents of the opposition but work with government to deliver its development agenda.

The Minister has since told teachers should take keen interest in learning about the many developmental projects the government has achieved and embarked on if they are to communicate the right messages.

Mr. Chilangwa cited misinformation about Zambia’s debt, the Zambia – China relationship, fuel prices and cost of living in Zambia some of that issues that teachers can communicate correctly.

He accused the opposition of attempting to mislead unsuspecting members of the public that Zambia is in a debt crisis when in fact not.

  1. In other words indoctrinate the kids into believing that PF is the best. This should not be allowed to place in schools. !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. All I see is him directing teachers to be agents of political propaganda. You’re out of line baMinister.
    What medium is the opposition using to mislead the public that this very ‘popular’ govt is unable to use to disseminate correct information about the various developmental programs it’s carrying out, including the low fuel pump prices, low cost of living, very tiny public debt and ofcourse the all time low levels of corruption (pun intended)?

  3. Why are most African leaders so bad?? Why indoctrinate kids, is the assumption that parents don’t have their own minds. Please focus on improving service delivery systems and not this foolishness. Your incompetence is there for all to see, the sad part is that you Mr. Chilangwa and company have started to believe your own lies

  4. Teachers are not there to campaign on behalf of failed politicians and their useless delusions. Let teachers do their job properly without involving them in corruption and brainwashing young children. If teachers wanted to be politicians or supporters of certain political parties, then they are more than welcome to be that. Leave teachers and kids out of it !!
