Kasama District Commissioner Kalanga Bwalya has urged teachers in the area to be dedicated and committed to duty to ensure quality education delivery to all learners.
He said education plays an important role in national development adding that government attaches great importance to the sector by building and rehabilitating schools across the country.
Mr. Bwalya was speaking during the Open and Honours Day for Kapongolo Primary School in Kasama today.
The DC retaliated that hosting Open and Honours Day offers an opportunity to pupils to receive awards for their outstanding performances and encouraged those that did not receive any to work hard.
Mr. Bwalya also called on the girl child to be disciplined and not engage themselves into early marriages saying time to do so would come in the future.
