I have information that unemployed teachers are being asked to pay for their practicing certificates-HH

Share

UPND Leader Hakainde Hichilema says he has information that the Teaching Council of Zambia is asking both employed and unemployed teachers to pay for their practicing certificates.

Mr. Hichilema as much as certification is important, what is also very important for now, is to give teachers a relief during this Covid-19 period where the majority of trainers in private schools have been placed on unpaid leave.

The UPND Leader said this has left many teachers without an income to survive on.

Mr. Hichilema said the economic hardships teachers, both in public and private teaching are going through cannot be compared to other professionals who have continued working.

He has appealed to those in authority not to suffocate them further with more unfair demands.

Mr. Hichilema said the majority of these individuals they are sending messages to, are unemployed trained teachers who don’t have the means to pay for these licenses.

  1. THIS IS A VERY GOOD OBSERVATION BALLY, WHAT ARE THEY GOING TO PRACTICE AFTER PAYING BECAUSE THEY ARE NOT EMPLOYED, THIS GOES TO MEDICAL PERSONNEL AS WELL WHO ARE UNEMPLOYED, AND BY THE WAY WE ARE PAYING FOR HEALTH INSURANCE BUT I HAVE NOT SEEN ANY IMPACT AS TO SERVICE IMPROVEMENT IN COMPARISON TO THAT TIME WHEN WE WERE NOT PAYING. SOME OF THESE THING WILL LEAD PEOPLE TO HELL.

  2. A lot of articles from Chitimukulu, not sure why he is panicking. Cant Chiefs be given certain KPIs that they can concentrate on . like raising issues to do with welfare of their people. Without this guidance, we will just be prone to baseless issues and non productive issues

    • The chitimukulu has got a lot of time on lazy man’s chair, just writing novels instead of transversing his chiefdom and monitoring developmental projects and also send those who do not adhere to guidelines of chiefdom to mulima chipuba.,he just busy trying to be a book writer.

  4. HH ADDRESSES PROBLEM OF POLITICAL CADRES
    UPND President Hakainde Hichilema has addressed the problem posed by political cadres, setting out his thinking on the subject on social media.
    “Friends, it’s time for an honest conversation about political cadres, that many of you are concerned about,” Hakainde writes.
    Asking people to come with an open mind on the subject the UPND leader explains that in looking at the challenge he has first sought to understand its roots. HH says to do this we “must begin by humanising them and not be led by our personal prejudices based on what we have observed as unbecoming conduct.”
    “A cadre is a youth, a human being whose circumstances have necessitated their engagement in this form of occupation,” he writes. He goes on to give an example of a young man…

  5. CHITIMUKULU MUST TONE DOWN. HE LIKES COMMENTING ON POLITICS. OUR HISTORY HAS SHOWN THAT TRADITIONAL CHIEFS HAVE NO POLITICAL MUSCLE TO INFLUENCE VOTERS. SO HE PLAYING A VERY DANGEROUS GAME. THE BAROTSE SPONSORED NATIONAL PARTY LOST TERRIBLY TO UNIP IN THE 1962 ELECTIONS…UNIP (14) , ANC(7) , BNP(0) , BAZUNGU PARTY(15). UNIP then formed a coalition government with ANC to defeat the WHITES.
    IF CHITIMUKULU wants to promote BEMBA superiority, then he will be in for a rude shock.
    LET HIM TAKE A NEUTRAL STANCE AND MAY THE BEST TEAM WIN IN 2021… OTHERWISE …HE WILL LOSE RESPECT.

  6. For a person who claims to have an MBA HH is very ignorant. I am sure they taught you in your post graduate studies to seek reliable sources of information. You are basing your assertions on hearsay. If you engaged the rightful ministry you would learn that this applies to teachers in service and not those currently unemployed. And this is a person who wants to be president? Chikopo

  7. Yeah @ Munthu Wandi….unless we want our chiefs to become academicians. Thruth is it can be pretty lonely in those palaces

  8. Apparently he’s been informed wrongly, and that it only applies to employed teachers.

    It’s very sad to observe opposition trying to take advantage of this pandemic to show discord. Generally licences have to be paid for by Citizens. Funds from that goes to providing services for citizens. The unemployed would have to apply for social funding to pay for them.

    Why always inciting people? We need to work together in this time, being helpful and kind to one another.

  9. Hoo ya the teachers in Private schools are not getting salaries. It’s a fvcked up system. Ati babomba pa private!! Now you see, your balls are inflated.
    PF government should pay them from covid money. Even Chilufya can afford to pay them all from medical stores theft.

    Hey Bembas, is your current Chitimukulu Sosala mentally stable? You have to be concerned for his mental welfare because he sounds like he has completely lost it. He sounds worse than Kanye West’s recent rumblings.
    3 hypothesis:
    1) Those articles are not being written by Chitimukulu himself but someone within PF masquerading as such… may be Sunday Chanda himself;
    2) The PF and their OP Shushus have fed Chitimukulu with garbage which has caused him to panic big time! Or the PF have corrupted him with so much money
    3) The man has simply mentally lost it

    At this rate, I think the man is probably even alienating his own people. I doubt any sound Bemba (apart from the writer himself) would actually buy and believe that nonsense and use it against HH, no matter how petty or tribal they…

    …are.

    Wow! This guy is truly a fraud… Litunga he is definitely NOT, and that’s for sure!

    I think these articles will backfire in the face of the PF and Chitimukulu like a boomerang! The desperation to use Chitimukulu and him accepting to be politically used like a useful id!ot will have long lasting negative effects on the Chitimukulu throne regardless of whether HH wins or loses. I just don’t see how he will be able to recover from this – he is throwing a kitchen sink, except he throwing it at himself. I mean this borderline insanity!

  14. When Chief Mukuni makes political statements, he is praised as being wise and resourceful. Why shouldn’t Chitimukulu speak his mind? I understand your fear of getting no bemba vote next year. We understand the desparation. “Mpombo wibilima, ababilima tabaya!!”

  19. Moronic reasoning will definitely ruin what has been achieved by apf within 8years.Look at Prof has achieved in her former MoHR,recovering the loans which were given to the students years back and the moronic leadership opposed this action. UNFORTUNATELY THE PEOPLE ARE BEING CREDITED FOR THIS ARE THOSE WHO WERE INITIALLY RELUCTANT.The teaching council was created in order to maintain standards in the provision of education. Mind you Ministry Health employment those who are registered
