Lenje chiefs wants improved education

13

— Chief Mukubwe of the Lenje speaking people of Ngabwe district has called on government to improve the education standards in the newly created district in the Central province.

The traditional leader said this at the 2014 Ngabwe district education performance review and assessment meeting for Lwonde primary school.

ZANIS reports that Chief Mukubwe appealed to government to come up with policies that will enhance the education standards to produce children that would contribute to the development of the area and the country as a whole. 

He urged the teachers to work hard and reduce on unnecessary movements to and from town leaving the school with no one to attend to the children.

At the same gathering, Ngabwe District Commissioner Melody Phiri appealed to parents to stop the practice of preventing their children from attending school in preference to sending them into the bush to collect caterpillars commonly known as ‘ifishimu’.

Ms Phiri said there should be a deliberate policy to punish parents perpetuating the bad habit as a preventive measure to  would-be offenders.

‘Children are the future leaders of tomorrow, therefore, I call upon the chief, headmen, teachers and parents to put their resources together to implement this law to enhance the provision of education to the children’,  she said.

Speaking earlier, District Education Standards Officer  Victor Simufwi lamented on the poor education standards in the district.

Mr Simufwi cited poor staffing levels in the schools and dilapidated infrastructure including classrooms, toilets, teachers’ houses as well as poor water and sanitation facilities as some of the challenges that inhibit the development of education in Ngabwe.

He said the review meeting was an eye opener for all stakeholders to come up with constructive suggestions to boost the educational standards and the social economic development of Ngabwe  district.
