President Lungu hails teachers on Copperbelt for patriotism and dedication

General News President Lungu hails teachers on Copperbelt for patriotism and dedication

The Presidential Education Initiative (PEI) has hailed teachers on the Copperbelt for their patriotism and dedication to volunteer their services to serving the communities.

During a visit by the Presidential Education Initiative team, various teachers in Ndola, Chingola and Kabwe on Sunday offered to diligently offer free lessons to students enrolling for GCE Examinations under the President’s initiative.

The teachers said President Lungu needs to be assisted to delivering education to all Zambians if the country is to develop.
“The best investment any person can make in someone is to invest in education than to provide temporal monetary benefits which can end. This is why we are prepared to work with President Lungu to achieving the 1 million targets set for 2026 when he completes his second term in 2026,” said Clint Chisenga.

And Programmes Coordinator Patrick Samwimbila, who delivered the message on behalf of President Lungu, thanked the teachers for showing patriotism by dedication part of their time to volunteer in coaching and teaching GCE candidates.

“The Head of State is very passionate about supporting youths and those who are passed the age of getting into formal schooling by ensuring that they are assisted to take the GCE examinations,” he said.

Last week, President Lungu met the Presidential Education Initiative team at State House where he encouraged them to roll out the programme to all 10 provinces of Zambia and ensure millions of youth and other adults benefits from the Go-Back-To-School Free GCE Programme.

  4. “A person who has held Office twice is not eligible for Election as President “. (Article 106 (3)of the Zambian Constitution).ECL should first of all get his Certifcate of Eligibility from Concourt b4 contesting the 2021 Elections. ECL held Office, was elected and sworn in twice in 2015 and 2016 so there is no Third Term for him. If Concourt fails to interpret, defend and enforce the Republican Constitution Citizens will be forced to do so. ECL risks driving Zambia in unnecessary Civil Strife.

  9. He has formed another bribery scheme for teachers called Presidential Education Initiative over 5 years in State House…you wonder where the visionless bum has suddenly found monies for such programmes even worse is AG’s office can not audit all these taxpayer’s monies Lazy Lungu is dishing out.

  10. Luckson Siapeeza – Well done for what? Dishing out your money that isn’t audited …these services should be extended to PF MPs who dont have full G12 certificates.

  11. Patriotism is the key word here. You will see comments from angry upnd diasporans because they are traitors who lack any patriotism in their country of birth Zambia. They lost their nationality as Zambia and have taken up new ones where they are treated as second class . They think wiping backsides is making it in life

  12. President Lungu emphasizes education for the entire Zambians. He says that the country can only develop if its people are educated.

  13. Education is power! It brings knowledge, job opportunities, salaries, and upgrade the standard of living. It also plays a major role in the economic development of the country.

  14. President Lungu and his administration continuously encouraging Zambians to be more focused on gaining knowledge. No leader in the past has done that, ever!

  15. Go-Back-To-School initiated by President Lungu has brought a ray to hope to poor people that are willing to get an education but cannot afford the school fees.

  16. One thing I like about this programme is there is no age barrier. All age group people can freely get access to learning and that too from the great teachers.

  17. This level of patriotism can only witness under the leadership of President Lungu. He is a true inspiration for Zambians.

  18. Our literacy rate is growing!!! The nation produced well-qualified, skilled people that are making the country proud not only in Zambia but also internationally.

  19. Frankly speaking, earlier only a limited number of youths were taking education seriously which resulted in unemployment. But now, when President Lungu uplifted the education sector through initiating several schemes, providing better education facilities and institutes. Youths generated keen interest to gain knowledge and upgrade their living standards.
