Government advances K48 million to UNZA management to pay outstanding gratuities for Lecturers

General News Government advances K48 million to UNZA management to pay outstanding...

ACTING Minister of Education says the government has advanced K48 Million to the University of Zambia (UNZA) management towards the payment of outstanding gratuities for lecturers.

Speaking when he gave a ministerial statement on the recent protest at the institution, Mr. Elvis Nkandu said another sum of K50 Million will be disbursed resulting in a total K98 million.

Mr Nkandu said management has since been instructed to initiate payments of out standing gratuities immediately.

He added that UNZA Vice Chancellor Professor Luke Mumba has since assured government that the misunderstandings between students and unions have been resolved amicably.

“As government we will expedite the process of appointing substantive Councils at Unza and all other public universities in a quest to improve service delivery,” he said.

About three days ago, students from the university of Zambia staged a protest demanding for dismissal of thee-Chance Professor Luke Mumba, accusing him of failure to manage the school system.

  1. On second thoughts this guy is hurting over the detention of Mr Hakainde I am sure. But what Mr Hakainde did was inexcusable…..let someone try that on and see your reaction.

  2. Fixing PF & thief ECL problems. That K64 million from Faith Musonda has been used to solve the problem plus change. Imagine the other monies that have been stolen which havent been accounted for the problems that could have been sorted? Perhaps paying student meal allowances??? PF thieves need to be locked up!!!

    UNZA need a long term strategy and solutions on how they will survive and raise revenue. The entire university without any research and development and business projects to raise funds… just theory and handouts all the time, it’s embarrassing.
    These piecemeal, reactive solutions are not sustainable.

    This Deja Vu dude, all he has on his mind is “Hakainde Hichilema”, even in his sleep, so much that he has started posting irrelevant comments even on subjects that don’t involve HH… how sad.

  5. One only hopes that the FIFO (First-in-First Out) principle that UNZALARU has been insisting on is followed so that not only gratuities are paid out but that pensions are also paid out.
