North-West Teacher Transfers Shocks Ex-DC

Former Solwezi District Commissioner Crispin Likando has expressed shock in the manner teacher transfers and swaps have been conducted in North Western Province.

Likando said it WAs shocking that 41 teachers from a technical school were transferred in unexplained circumstances.

He said it will be suicidal to upgrade teachers from basic schools to technical secondary schools without considering a number of factors.

“The outbreak of transfers among teachers I hope and pray that the quality and standards of learning will not be compromised in technical secondary schools. I hope teachers from secondary schools are not being swapped, it will be suicidal to upgrade teachers from basic schools to technical secondary school,” Likando said.

He said transferring or swapping over 41 one teachers from one school is too much change that may affect complexion of a school.

Meanwhile, Solwezi Deputy Mayor Nephan Kamwandi has questioned the motive behind the transfers.

He said the move is likely to compromise the standards of teaching in the early stages.

“I am equally wondering about these transfers” Kamwandi stated.

    As much as am touched with these transfers,the govt is on the right track only that certain measures like maintaining high school teacher should be transfered to high schools and primary school teachers to primary schools. These will enhance the standard of performance in our schools. Some teachers have stayed for over 20yrs at one school that is why we here of many unruly things happening among our trs.For those who are serious with work its a plus but to those who are misbehaving they have to be moved. We here of linkages and malpractices happening among pupils and teachers during exams in our schools. One of the contributing factors is over staying at one school. Let the teaching service transfer all those who have stayed at one school for more than necessary so that they test rural setup an VI’s vesa.

    Hopefully the authorities there are not locals up to ethnical cleansing. The Bible has told us difficult times. Today one is full of praise for you tomorrow they’re calling you all sort of demeaning names. We have been warned about the emergence of selfish, lovers of themselves, lovers of money, slanders, boastful, tricksters pretending they can solve our problems yet they have no capacity. Mako ni mako usamuone kuchepa mwendo. Youth like Miles Sampa and Antonio Mwanza know very well which side of there bread is buttered.

    Please dont mix technical secondary schools teachers to basic school teachers during transfer period, becouse it may bring about a total comfusion to a better standerd of education level.

    Teachers will stop buying glass tables, it will all break in the process of moving from one area to another. Transferring can not solve anything, they are going with their problems that’s in fact the spread of problems to other area. On the other side tichaz should be on permanent places in order to be stable. We should bear in mind a problem man is just a problem, transfer can’t change the heart of an old man, these are just confusions instead apply meaningful measures such as punish the law breakers in the teaching fraternity.

    I think the move taken by the ministry is OK. There is no way a civil servant can stay at the same place for more than 10 years. This is bad. Its good that move has been considered, this is all to avoid Residence Monotone.
