President Edgar Lungu has directed the reopening of schools, colleges and universities.
President Lungu has also partially opened bars and night clubs.
He said learning institutions should be ready to reopen between September 14 and September 28.
President Lungu was speaking during the ceremonial opening of the Fifth session of the 12 National Assembly Friday morning.
He has however said all learning institutions should follow Covid 19 prevention guidelines.
President Lungu has directed that bars will operate from 18:00 hrs to 23:00 hours from Friday to Sunday.
He however said he will not hesitate to reverse his decision should they fail to adhere to the covid 19 health prevention guidelines.
Ama Bar kale yaisuka naimwe, what are you talking about? Just say you have reduced operating hours for Bars now!!
??? very true
Ichi chena chiwelewele
I like that Ba Edgar reads my contributions the drinking hours 6pm – 11pm Friday to Sunday, is my standards I shared with my jailed friend @Ndobo. We save money us who have that schedule and we keep Sabbath.
Responsible government which ensures scientific advice is taken on board before making decisions. We still ask you all to be responsible and do not relax with compliance to social distancing. As for me I am headed to KAFUE THIS weekend. Boat chills. If you know me come and say hi. I don’t bite
Kafue my small sweet home town.
Enjoy the boats Mr Kaizar.
He has done well to reopen schools because the school calendar is already in jeopardy. The President lost an opportunity to properly bid farewell to Mr Speaker, he never get another opportunity to address Parliament before he becomes at ex-president. Anyway I can’t blame him, what can his Political Advisor advise him if he also a kandile, they’ll go together. This time around even ba Chitawala will vote. The PF must preparing for a Convention to elect another leader before this one causes them a humiliating defeat. There’s nothing new that Edgar will bring to the table, we ‘re fed up with his poor leadership
night clubs should be left out for now knowing how we like our beers
@Ayatollah, what do you mean by “we”. Speak for yourself. The way I see it, a miracle needs to happen between now a elections day for Lungu to lose. Lungu might not be the best President Zambia has ever had but looking at the alternatives they a worse than him. The alternatives are in opposition for either bitterness, hate, selfishness, hurt or fired for corruption. None of these reasons are good reasons for being in opposition.
How sure are you that Lungu will leave sate House and Bally will…………………………………………….?
My thoughts too
@kci, alternatives are within the PF, there’s no material in the opposition
Does the word partial exist in Zambian vocabulary?
Mr President keep it up now announce about free education for one year at least
@[email protected], TRUE, YOU GUYS HAVE A POINT…. I AM ALSO NOT SEEING AN ALTERNATIVE IN THE OPPOSITION….NOT GOOD ENOUGH TO TAKE UP THE MANTLE TO PUSH US FORWARD…..THE PEACE WE HAVE AS A NATION IS GREATER THAN WHAT WE ARE SEEKING TO CHANGE….

Will the grade 11s proceed to grade 12 next year
UPND, the have to find something wrong from the speech and comment. They will never say it was a good speech. Just like a new car at the road block, the traffic officer has to find something wrong with the new car. The president alone cannot solve all our problems. Just like a salary cannot buy all the needs in the house.
Good move, I think children will be more manageable when in school.
He did not look himself when reading the speech, is it that he has been told that tabakapite
Thank you Mr. president for opening schools don’t listen to arm chair critics they will just derail you , in these tough times of Covid 19 we need to unite and work extra hard it is easy to criticize when you have never done anything before ,we love you and we are praying for you and we know that it is God who gives us Leaders.
Nice move your excellency..
I was driving through Chibuluma road this morning this road goes past Mukuba Secondary school in Kitwe this road is just infront of Mukuba secondary School were the the Head state Dr.Edgar Chagwa Lungu used to go to. I tell you this road is dilapitated it’s a deplorable state such that it looks like it’s in a war torn country. But guess what I tuned on my car Radio only to hear the last part of the Presidentail Parliamentary Speech which went on to say Zambia is now better than we found it. I just said Woo with this type of Road going past his former Secondary School is better?? that brought to mind other things like the depreciation of the Kwacha,continous loadshedding,etc.Ya
He laughed and I also laughed when himself ECL addressed the speaker that. “MR SKIPPER SIR”… Kikikikikiki HH next presido for Zambie.
Ati Mr Skipper sir ?????I miss that day.
Thank you ba president we will following your directives very seriously!
If some people cannot sèe an alternative to this mediorce leader, then we know how ‘clever’ they are themselves
What ? Only a corrupt mind can support Lungu.You continue stealing but there is time to pay back. It may not be in your life time but you will surely pay, that I promise you…
Shhhhh…..silent in court
Or Parliament….PF pamaka….
Good move his excellence
But try to stabilize ka kwacha
Bye Bye E-learning
Thank Mr President ?
What about school fees? for this came in without a proper plan. You should have given us three month to source for school fees. we are broke as word itself. plan plan plan plan please.
When are you going to walk the walk. Lungu with unfounded assurance often misunderstand economic development within Zambia because he is constantly pretending to care or trying to please people to take their toll on FAKE promises.
Good move opening bar from 18:00hr to 23:00hr and from Friday to Sunday I like it. I think Nabaiche balachepako muma bar mwe
Nafuti nafuti nafuti!
Elite Zambian Patriots 100%
Zambia overdrive 100%
As 2021fast approaches.
You must mean what you speak or talk about,psychologically people’s minds can be complicated
The reopening of schools is a great move.
But how do we prepare school fees in about 2weeks?
Not all are well financially at the moment.
Is it a free term? Or will school admins understand installment payments?
About night club, forget social distancing… Do u know akamusango kabwalwa imwe?
