5,000 TEACHERS TO BE RECRUITED IN 2021, REVEALS MWILA

Lusaka ~ Mon, 19 Oct 2020

By ZR Reporter

Patriotic Front Secretary General Davies Mwila says the ruling party is disturbed that observers such as NGOs are silent over the hacking of innocent villagers by UPND in Lavushimanda District, Muchinga Province.

And Mr Mwila has disclosed that about 5,000 teachers will be recruited next Year.

Speaking on ZNBC’s Sunday Interview last evening, the PF CEO further explained that the PF does not condone violence, stressing that some of its members who have been found wanting have appeared before the courts.

And the PF Secretary General advised PF elected structures to work closely with the PF Mobilization Committee in marketing the ruling party.

The former Deputy Minister of Home Affairs further advised elected PF structures to understand that the mobilization Committees are adhoc committees which will be dissolved after the 2021 general elections.

He guided that there was need to fear the mobilization committee but the who purpose of bring them on board was to ensure that the ruling party wins the 2021 general elections.

Mr Mwila also took advantage of the opportunity to highlight developmental projects done under the Pf government.

He said the PF Government had built four (4) more Universities, pushing the number from three to seven in less than ten years, adding that under President Edgar Lungu’s leadership, government had reduced school fees from K1,200 to K200 because it is a pro-poor government.

Mr Mwaila also announced that about five thousand (5,000) teachers will be recruited next year to increase manpower in the education sector and reduce unemployment.

In the health sector, the PF CEO said out of the 650 health posts that are being built across the country under a line of credit from the Indian Government,400 posts were now operational adding that government had built 19 new District Hospitals with 26,000 health workers employed from the time the PF Government came into power.

Hon Mwila also explained that government has made progress in ensuring that under the Link Zambia 8000 key roads such are worked on.

He says the PF Government has intervened into social protection through the K30 million Youth Empowerment Fund, increased the number of beneficiaries of the Farmer Input Support Programme (FISP) to one million (1,000,000) and raised the tax threshold for workers to K4,000 in order to cushion Zambians from the high cost of living.

Meanwhile, Mr Mwila said the opposition UPND were cry babies because they have never been ready for elections urging them instead support constitutional amendment Bill number 10 which all political parties agreed to amend the Public Order Act at a meeting held in Siavonga.

On the electoral process, Mr Mwila said his party was confident that the Electoral Commission of Zambia has capacity to register nine million people in 30 days because it facilitates the voting of over four million people in one day.

The PF Secretary General also said the online pre-voter registration is not mandatory urging those wishing to conduct manual registration to wait for October 28, 2020.

Regarding intra party politics, Mr Mwila said the PF will finish conducting provincial elections in December 2020 followed by the General Convention as stipulated by the PF Constitution to elect leaders every five years

He also guided those aspiring for leadership not to disturb incumbent PF MPs as time for adoptions has not yet come but was quick to mention that those who have not performed will not be adopted.

      Instead of minister of education to give the alert of recruitment of teachers next year they let party general Secretary to do that , does the recruiting concerns the part or it’s the government to do so ba president twebeni if those teachers you are going to recruit next year they will under the political party of PF.Not only that Mr mwila is busy saying your government has delivered projects all over the country but to ask you the question which developmental projects have you delivered in Northern province especially kasama the provincial center, your excellence you came here in 2017 to do the ground breaking of Nseluka Kayambi RD up which is about 254km distance but only 7km has been worked on and not even reached at the completion stage your minister of finance come over the same road and fund money for 30km gravel road.We are still waiting for the university you promised the people of Northern province don’t promise if you can’t deliver”Umwana uukana awamishapo ukuchila uulaya efyo tengabomba”

  10. kubweka

    Honestly what time did the UPND have to go into villages to hack people whilst driving thru and defending themselves from ba Mwila s violent cadres? Some lies don t make sense. Where is the minister of education whilst a party member is speaking about government employment. Funny government this. LOL

  11. Villager

    It’s not true that Government has increased beneficiaries of FISP when a lot have been removed can the PF give us more information by Pronvince and by districts

  12. Mwachuleni Mukwai

    its time up ba pf, we have already tried u.

  13. Jonathan Makwamba

    Another PF government campaign gimmick. Why in 2021 and not now?? We have people who graduated way back 2011 and have not been deployed. 5000 is just a drop in the poll of over 30,000 graduates awaiting deployment.

  14. SIMAKANDO WA SIMALOYA

    MARUBISH!!!!! WHERE ARE THE MINISTERS OF BOTH HIGHT AND GENERAL EDUCATION FOR THE SECRETARY GENERAL TO TALK ABOUT THE TEACHER RECRUITMENT PROGRAM?????? AND WHY 5000 WHEN WE HAVE MORE THAN 90 000 UNEMPLOYED TEACHERS IN OUR COMMUNITIES????? I THINK THIS IS A VERY BIG MOCKARY TO MY FELLOW GRADUATES!!!!!!!

  15. Josephine chi

    5000 is a drop in an ocean, not even of cadres can fit that number.

  16. Josephine chi
