Minister of Higher Education Nkandu Luo has revealed that a Youth Skills Training Centre will soon be constructed in Shiwang’andu district in Muchinga Province.

Professor Luo disclosed in Shiwang’andu today that two sites have since been identified for the construction of the training institution, adding that one site is at Kabangama area while the other site is near the district centre.

Professor Luo said the essence of the Youth Skills Training Centre is to impart young people with various skills from cross cutting training programmes that will be of economic benefit to the district.

The Minister said this when she conducted an inspection of the identified sites in the company of Shiwang’andu District Council Chairperson Epilius Chisulo and the District Administrative Officer Noah Simulunga.

She added that funds permitting, an additional training institute will be set up in the area, after concluding the one that has been budgeted for, due to the high demand of skills training from the youths.

Professor Luo also revealed that the Zambia National Service will be engaged to spearhead the construction of the training centres.

And Shiwang’andu District Council Chairperson Epilius Chisulo said once the Youth skills training centre is operational, it will attract a lot of trainees bearing in mind that it will be the first of its kind in the district.

Mr Chisulo added that with the number of school leavers, the idea of a skills centre is a welcome move.

  1. Our resources are going to develop these regions which contribute the least to GDP and on top of that they are evading paying tax and stealing the same tax that others are contributing.

    • Your friends in Rwanda have launched a satellite into orbit so they can connect all Primary and Secondary schools to the net so pupils can all learn coding…meanwhile you on the other hand are talking about retrogressive 1960s ideology of technical colleges teaching metalwork and carpentry. In 8 years time you will be asking Rwanda for technical assistance in IT and the global giants will set up bases there to tap into that skills market.

  2. Its ironic what this evil woman who is a professor is hell bent to destroy our education system. She has nothing to worry about as her children are now old and were educated abroad.
    This is the type of education PF want you to attain technical education become site foremen, carpenters, painters etc for Chinks…they are failing to invest in higher education where they are closing universities indefinitely and lecturers have not been paid since January.

  3. These Katangese animals from the Nabwalya Ituri jungle, even a PhD cannot make them puke tribal bigotry! It sickens me deeply that all resources are going to develop Muchinga and the expense of all other parts of the country! No wonder the Lozis want to quit this outfit called Zambia, it’s a failed one!
