Zambia has called on African countries to improve on their education systems in order to compete favorably worldwide.

General Education Minister David Mabumba says provision of quality education will make Africa better and stronger.

Mr. Mabumba was speaking in Maseru, Lesotho during the 10TH Conference for the Africa Federation of Teaching Regulatory Authority (AFTRA).

He said provision of quality education should be a shared aspiration to all African countries, as such, Zambia remained committed to ensuring that teachers delivered quality education.

Mr. Mabumba said that Zambia, under the leadership of His Excellency President Edgar Lungu would support initiatives aimed at improving education.

He said aspirations for a developed Africa would only be realized once learners are taught by professionally qualified and productive teachers.

Mr. Mabumba urged (AFTRA ) member countries to ensure that the teaching profession was adequately researched and well regulated.

He expressed happiness that Zambia has already operationalized the regulation of the teaching profession through the establishment of the Teaching Council of Zambia.

The Conference attracted the participation of over 10 African countries that included Nigeria, Cameroon Ghana and Kenya.

Other countries are Zambia, Lesotho, Botswana, South Africa, and Tanzania among others.

    • Oh dear Talk about Zambia where we have mushrooms of unregulated, poorly resourced and under funded educational institutions calling themselves university of chakuti. Quacks wake up every morning to open so called “universities” what a joke


  1. A speech written for this cadre. What is happening here in Zambia does not tally with his words.

    The quality of Zambian education has plummeted with our qualifications being rejected by reputable learning institutions worldwide


  2. Talk about Zambia and concentrate on how you will improve Zambian Education and not Africa. There a lot of African Countries that have their Education Systems far much better than Zambia, so do not think that every every African Country is as behind as us.
