Fake Teachers: Secondary Schools Teachers Union say the Education System is Rotten

General News Fake Teachers: Secondary Schools Teachers Union say the Education System is Rotten

Secondary Schools Teachers Union of Zambia (SESTUZ) General Secretary, Sitibekiso Wamuyuwa has charged that the education system is rotten.

Mr Wamuyuwa’s statement follows the recent revelations of 1,500 teachers recruited in a fake scam.

Speaking when He featured on a live programme on ZNBC today, Mr Mwamuyuwa wondered how the system could allow teachers with fake recruitment letters to serve in the Ministry of Education.

He stated that there is no right word to describe a system that allows teachers with fake qualifications and fake recruitment letters to serve in the teaching sector.

“No matter how fair you want to be to the system, there is no better way of describing the system apart from saying that the system is probably rotten,” He said.

“You can be very kind to look for the right word to describe but when you have a system that allows teachers with fake qualifications or letters of recruitment, definitely the system is not working right. Something needs to be done.”

The SESTUZ General Secretary said there is need to put in place mechanism so as to ensure that the scamming of teachers is brought to an end.

Mr Wamuyuwa described the situation as worrisome, adding that government must act swiftly to address the issue once and for all.

“What is worrisome for us and believe even to you, we must make a follow-ups after the revelations so that mechanism are put in place to ensure that such things don’t occur or happening again.”

Mr Wamuyuwa noted that the Union finds it difficult to understand how 1,500 teachers were recruited into the teaching service using fake documentation.

He urged government to investigate the matter and not just to end at the revelation stage.

Mr Wamuyuwa insisted that follow-ups should be made by relevant authorities so as to establish the people behind the people scamming of teachers.

“1,500 to be recruited using fake documents it’s something too difficult to understand and that should not be allowed to be left at the revelations stage, follows must be made find out how did it happen who is responsible, I believe its not something difficult to bring to book ,” He said.

  1. Ive been saying this for a long time now
    PF caused this and the only way to rectify it is give teachers the same exams ( 3 different years ) the pupils face at the end of the year
    one would be shocked at the failure rate

  2. You saw and knew that 1,500 teachers had fake documents but never said anything. You kept quiet. This nonsense of coming out each time you have a new goverment must stop. Did you even attempt to approach the ACC or any agency. We reported one employ who used someone else’s credentials to get a job at the mine and this person was successfully convicted so why didn’t you do the same. Unless you show me evidence of what you did on the SCANDAL it’s all hot air from the back side.

  3. @Deja Kolwe: you are such a embecile. Cos if this man saw and talked you morons would ve fired him instantly. That’s how you burgers operated. The culprit here is you Deja “PF Cadre” Vu -explain to ACC yourself how & why u employed fake teachers. And thrust me, these must all be PF cadres and Bemba/Nyanja. So u morons employed pf cadres to teach our kids abt pf cadrism. GRZ must investigate the nurses too and other agencies I can see we underestimated how deep these cadres cud infiltrate the system.

  4. #5 We Voted… please if you don’t have the capacity to debate issues civilly please leave me alone. I don’t believe in insulting people…. I used to do that so much that if insult you you may end up losing appetite.

  5. This type of reasoning has ruied this nation.Coming out in the open when a new government comes into power is indeed not good.It clearly shows that the people who have the powers to question wrong doing when they are meeting in the board rooms are doing thier work properly.Unions are the riht organizations to do just that.

  6. Deju, that how they were culture while in opposition, to insult instad of reasoning.They think they were only people who voted PF out.They forgive them.

  7. True we need school inspectors to come back..these many mashrooming schools dont have qualified teachers but the ‘cheat’ I mean ‘teach’ children…flush them out..bring back INSET …Inservice training for all teachers..lets have a distinction between a head teacher and a head master or mistress…..senior school inspector etc….bring back the pride of being a teacher…not these who share our children’s packed lunch…and you parents who stop your spoilt brats from doing manual work…steal exam papers for them etc….stop it corrupt all the way….

  8. YOU ARE TRYING TO PLAY DOUBLE STANDARD HERE …. ALL THESE YEARS YOU HAVE BEEN QUIET ABOUT THIS NOSENSE SIMPLY BECAUSE YOU ARE THE BIG BENEFICIARY OF THIS ROTEN SYSTEM OF YOURS. THE MINISTRY OF EDUCATION THEY MUST ABOLISH ALL THESE FAKE UNIONS WHO JUST INTERESTED IN CONTRIBUTIONS FROM THE MEMBERS == STUPIDIT OF THE HIGHEST ORDER FROM THE SO CALLED EDUCATED FOOLS

  9. What you should know is that all those are Zambians like any of us and want jobs like you want to keep yours, just imagine it was your sister or your own son amongst those stranded teachers what would you do!
    If those stranded teachers you call them fake well I don’t know but you have to know that they are teachers reason why they applied.
    the solution is get them if they fall short then retrain them, don’t throw them in the streets

  10. Point @Siti. It is called organized crime. It can also rightfully be assumed that the syndicates that employed the fake teachers are still intact within the HR system. Will this case again be left to die just like that?. Of course not. There should be a heavy price to pay for the perpetuators of this corruption value chain. The evil scheme deprived ordinary qualified youths of career opportunities and a means with by which they could earn a living for themselves and their families. Instead unqualified relatives, cadres and those who had resources to pay were recruited. What a shame.

  11. #15 Rex Tifi … True. I will not be completely wrong to assume even this union official has relatives employed as teachers using his influence. We have seen it everywhere and everyday.
