Sunday Chanda pledges to Phase Out All Grass-Thatched Muddy Community School


Patriotic Front Parliamentary Candidate for Kanchibiya Constituency Sunday Chanda has announced an ambitious 5- Year Community School Rehabilitation Programme for Kanchibiya aimed at phasing out all grass-thatched muddy community schools in the Constituency by the year 2026.
Speaking when he toured Chisensela Community School in Lubaleshi Ward this morning, Mr Chanda said it was unacceptable that children would learn in the kind of classrooms that he found at the school.

“Our 2021-2026 election manifesto is saying ‘NO’ to this kind of thing. In this regard, let me announce a 5 – Year Community School Rehabilitation Programme for Kanchibiya Constituency aimed at phasing out all grass-thatched muddy community schools by the year 2026.” He said

Mr Chanda said this programme will be anchored by strong community partnership and participation, private sector involvement and Government coming in to facilitate.

“We shall rehabilitate and mordernise community schools, working with the locals to make desks as well as ensure adequate teacher – pupil ratios and learning materials. This is what we shall embark on after the 12th June 2021 elections. I therefore ask all of you to support and vote for President Edgar Chagwa Lungu and Patriotic Front. I cannot do anything alone”, Mr. Chanda said.

And Mr Chanda introduced a reward system for best performing boy and girl children in the schools as an incentive for them to work even harder.

In March 2021, Mr Chanda donated building materials to Chisensela Community School towards the construction of a 1 x 3 classroom block.

The community is providing sand and burnt bricks towards this project and the classroom block will be constructed by local contractors mobilized from Chisensela village.

  1. This is what we like to hear comrade. Thank you so much for this. We will ensure you do so when we win in August.

    I have a bad stomach and have been running to and from toilet. Upnd you won’t manage to bewltch me because God is on my side. I am still on the ground and nothing will stop me

  2. The most classic adage regarding trolling is, “DONT FEED TROLLS.” Trolls seek out emotional responses and find provocation amusing, so replying to them or attempting to debate them will only make them troll more. By ignoring a troll completely, they will likely become frustrated and go somewhere else on the internet.

    You should try your best not to take ANYTHING trolls say seriously. NO matter how POORLY they behave, remember these people spend countless UNPRODUCTIVE hours trying to make people mad. They’re not WORTH your time of day.

  3. Really laughable …this Kanchibiya Constituency has been in PF hands since God knows…this donkey from the crooked Chanda Bros Ltd comes and says he will phase out this thatched school.

  4. Look at this Chanda he is busy talking to old women without a mask…doesnt he know that he is a risk to their health.

  5. (f) It should be noted that the three-year rule (in Article 106(6) of the Constitution applies only in situations where: (i) the office of President falls vacant and the vice-president automatically takes over; and (ii) when an election is held because the vice-president who should take over to serve the remainder of the president’s term is their unwilling or unable to do so. This rule did not apply in 2015 (pre-constitutional amendment) when the First Respondent was first elected to the office of President. Importantly, the First Respondent did not assume the presidency because he was vice-president or as a result of an election held because the then vice-president could not, for any reason, assume the office of President.

  6. Had the GDP kept growing @6.4% p.a like it did during MMD years then these mud/thatch schools woulda been eliminated. But PF stagnation is taking us back to mud houses era.

  7. Ba LT are so keen to amplify PF messages they overuse and misuse verbs! Ati Chanda promises to pledges to Phase Out

  8. Ba LT are so keen to amplify PF messages they even overuse verbs! Ati Chanda promises to pledges to Phase Out

  9. Where has Sunday Chanda and PF been all this time ….we cannot allow to have kids (the future leaders of our country) learning under the trees or in grass thatched classrooms…no way … not in the 21st Century. This is an unacceptable behaviour by PF. SC even says from 2021-2026 kwati lishilu…. Insoni insoni….vote these guys out bane let’s retire them for good.

  10. Iyee moye, kanshi mwalechita announcement ya budget yachalo, tabali mumano yenu ba PF.

    Say no to top down leadership.

    “Through the U.S. Department of Education, the federal government provides nearly $79 billion a year on primary and secondary education programs. … In the annual appropriations process, elementary and secondary education funding accounts for about 5 percent of discretionary funding across all federal programs.”

    PF time out.

  11. Mud classrooms and grass thatched roofs in the age of internet,fancy malls in Lsk and space tourism? PF is taking us backwards really.

  12. That is development after being in power for 10 years. It is very sad to have such community schools in Zambia. This is the time PF will loose election.
