The National Action for Quality Education (NAQEZ) has welcomed the announcement by President Edgar Lungu, that Government will soon start constructing houses for teachers.

In a statement NAQEZ executive director Aaron Chansa said the announcement is good news and has come at a time when teachers are going through very hard times in terms of pathetic accommodation, static salaries,no salary scale upgrades, poor infrastructure and a very demotivating promotion system.

He said this scenario is an assault on efforts for quality education delivery in schools.

“Previously, NAQEZ was at pains as to why Government was only building beautiful houses for defense forces without considering those who produce everyone, the teachers.We are happy that this unfair practice will be history,if this plan will indeed be actualized,” Mr.Chansa said.

Mr. Chansa said today many teachers, especially in rural areas,stay in grass thatched houses adding that this is bad and cannot continue to be the norm as a country.

“As we thank our President for this exciting development,we plead with the Presidential aide for projects implementation to closely work with the Ministry of General Education in order for this initiative to quickly take off. As an organization,we shall take alot of interest in this matter so that teachers in the country can benefit,”said Mr.Chansa.

  2. We are tired of your lies naimwe. Are you not even ashamed about what you have done to the country? You think we are kids?

  3. Why did this man wait to start constructing houses for teachers till election time .Please get the houses and vote him out .

  4. I think these leaders are confused, all these years he hs ruled, never hs he thot of constructing houses for teachers ad wht abt the nurses. These are fake promises, jst start packing than wasting time telling people wht u failed to do in a long time.

  5. That’s the worst decision ever. Empower teachers to build their houses unless in places that are hard to settle.

    Chiluba did us favour to sell parastatal houses that were all but misused and undermaintained. No country is doing that anymore. Build houses that will be rented out to whoever may want not targeting a ministry again. Going back to communism is the worst that will ever happen to Zambia.

  6. There is a ministry that focuses on roads more than housing and you still lament on the housing deficit. Houses should not only be for the civil service but the general citizenery!!

  7. HE SHOULD ADD CON MAN TO HIS NAME, WHERE HAS HE BEEN – HOLIDAY. CONTINUE WITH YOUR HOLIDAY, THIS TIME NOT IN STATE HOUSE WHERE IT HAS BEEN FULLY PAID FOR WITH MILLIONS OF CASH TO SPEND.

  8. Dont mind this lazy chap Edgar, he has ignored you all these years now he wants to build houses for teachers ..really laughable…when the govt can not even complete ongoing projects. Teachers dont be hoodwinked by this clueless inept man they will just dig up foundations and abandon works

  11. We sold government houses under Chiluba MMD to sitting tenants because GRZ can not maintain them. Instead, workers were given housing allowance to empower them to rent or build their own houses. What is this now? Dununa reverse???!!!

  12. Teachers will own houses after retirement. Remunerate them well to afford mortgage, Why praising such pronouncement?
