Students from 11 Universities and Colleges endorse Lungu for 2021

Share

About 500 students from eleven higher learning institutions have endorsed President Edgar Lungu ahead of August 12 general elections and have since established a coalition called Students Coalition for Lungu 2021.

The institutions are, the University of Zambia, Eden University, National Institute of Public Administration, Evelyn Hone College of Applied Arts and Commerce, UNICHOS, University of Lusaka and Chalimbana university. Others are Zambia Centre for Accountancy, Zambia Open University, Levy Mwanawansa university and Cavendish university.

Meanwhie Lusaka Province Minister Bowman Lusambo snubbed the National Students Forum on Party Manifesto where President Lungu was endorsed.

Speaking on behalf of the students, Zambia National Students Union president Steven Kanyakula says students in their resolutions today they have carefully scrutinized and compared the manifesto of the Patriotic Front as regards to education to manifestos of other political parties, they were convinced that the PF and President Lungu need another mandate to govern he nation.

He says the manifesto shows the PF wants to ensure no one is left behind. Mr Kanyakula said students appreciate the investment that President Lungu has made towards education.

“As a student at Levy Mwanawasa University and indeed many other students, we can attest to the tough decisions the President and his predecessor has had to make towards building our infrastructure in education.

He said it was gratifying to note that President Lungu, through the 2021 to 2026 PF manifesto, is promising to expand the student loan scheme to include private universities and we want to categorically state that he has our full support in this endeavor,” he says.

“So today May 11, 2021, we do hereby resolve to support the Patriotic Front manifesto on education and do hereby endorse the candidature of President Edgar Chagwa Lungu ahead of 2021 elections.

  2. “State and local role in education funding
    According to the US Department of Education, the Federal Government contributes about 8% to funding US public schools. To fund the remaining balance per student in the public education System, state and local governments are mandated to allocate money towards education.”

    To mandate something means to make it mandatory for GRZ.

    required by law or rules; compulsory.

    Things like these make third term questionable.

    PF time out.

  3. PF manifesto is more realistic than the promise of free Education. Zaanasu is progressive.

  6. ZAMBIA belongs to us all. We cannot be hoodwinked by promises of free Education. It was doable then after Independence but now we have more teachers that we even failing to pay them. We better off spending taxes in building more public universities and giving loans to students so they can employ the unemployed graduates than making education free.

  7. I have never been so fearful of the ruling party losing an election before. I feel the opposition have strategised very well, I feel time is up for PF.

  8. Who is lying to these young people?!? What plans are there for them when they graduate? These are the questions they should be asking. They will graduate but no jobs will be waiting for them. The unemployment rate is Zambia is going up every year.

  9. As a student at Levy Mwanawasa University and indeed many other students, we can attest to the tough decisions the President and his predecessor has had to make towards building our infrastructure in education. Students responding to the sang song. ECL has earned votes from the the students. Note that we do not owe anyone anything for anyone to say it is my time to rule. In pictures, the lecture rooms look nice. My President and his predecessor, we say thank you.

  11. Proves they are just kids who think of the moment like puppies without worries of being guard dogs! These students think they’ll be in university forever and are not thinking about what becomes of them and their education/training after their stint in university. Their colleagues before them are now doing menial jobs or selling malasha or veggies in markets as they pound streets searching for jobs! The mind of these young people are not yet for bigger things in their lives!

  12. If these are the kinds of students we have, I am worried as an educator in a higher institution. No sense of future perspective.

  13. ECL and PF have said that they will not leave anyone behind as they grow the economy. Now, the students can see development unfolding and hence the trust in PF. No good song to mock unemployment. ECL continue with made in Zambia to create employment.

  14. Students were paid K50 bribes for pf and lungu.
    What a load of cheap retarded so called student
    Pf out,???
