THE Zambia Information and Communication Technology Authority (ZICTA) is working on upgrading its college in Ndola in order to match with the pace of innovation in Zambia.
Board Chairperson Emmanuel Musonda said ZICTA was working on upgrading the Zambia Information and Communication College in Ndola.
He said  in a speech  read  for him  by board  member Vesters Chungu that the  Information Communication Technology (ICT)  industry in Zambia was one of the fastest growing in the  region hence the need  to  have the training upgraded.
“As an ICT regulator, we are cognizant of the value of education.

This sector demand continues training and upgrading of skills to match the fast pace of innovation,” he said.
He said this when the company donated three second hand vehicles, two  double- cab vans and a micro bus  valued at K200 000 to the college in Ndola on Friday last week.
Mr Musonda said the donation was part of the upgrading process adding that they would help alleviate transport challenges the college was facing.
He said ZICTA valued the investments   and resources needed to run the learning institution in meeting its required standards.
The board chairperson added that ZICTA would next year embark on a series of activities that will change the operation of the institution.
College acting director Stephen Mumba commended ZICTA  for  giving the institution  the vehicles  saying they  will help  alleviate the transport  challenge  it  has been  facing.
Mr Mumba added that the vehicles would help students conductor educational tours and sport as   required by TEVETA.
