A Catholic priest has observed that the unprecedented number of mushrooming universities in Zambia is compromising the quality of tertiary education. Fr Patrick Chilambwe, the Vice Chancellor of the Zambia Catholic University, says in the absence of a framework to deliver quality education, most higher learning institutions are falling short. BELOW IS THE STATEMENT ISSUED BY ZCCB COMMUNICATIONS OFFICER MWENYA MUKUKA Vice Chancellor of the Zambia Catholic University (ZCU) has observed that plurality of Universities without a framework has continued to be a challenge on the quality of tertiary education in the country. Fr. Patrick Chilambwe said that when the country has a too many higher learning institutions there should be a frame work to regulate quality of education being delivered. “When you have so many institutions of higher learning, there must be a framework to ensure that that what matters is not the number, but the quality of education being offered. And I am sure that quality is a challenge the education system is facing in Zambia. We are however hopeful that in the coming few years this will be addressed,†he said. And Fr. Chilambwe has said the Catholic Church strongly believes that education in its truest sense is about giving people orientation, direction and true meaning of life. He said that it is about opening minds to life long search for wisdom adding that it is deeper than information giving because enables people to be proactive, be in control of their lives and broaden economic, social and other opportunities. “Education goes beyond the getting of knowledge. It is for an application of the dignity of each and every member of society. The Catholic education believes that education is vital for the integral development of the people in social, economic, cultural, spiritual, political and religious spheres,†he noted. And the ZCU Vice Chancellor said that there cannot be true and authentic development without well-educated citizens. “There cannot be true and authentic development without well-educated citizens, therefore education is not a privilege for a few people but is basically a fundamental right for each and every citizen of any given country,†he noted. Speaking when a conducted Holy Mass at Zambia Catholic University (ZCU), Mass Communications Faculty in Lusaka on Friday, 17th February, 2017, Fr. Chilambwe re-echoed Pope John II’s message that education is above all the communication of Christ and helping to form Christ in the lives of others. “Education is not a commodity, even if Catholic schools equip its graduates with enviable skills, but rather a Catholic school sets out to be a place of human person and of human persons adding the Catholic University should be grounded on the community of people who believe in Jesus Christ,†he observed. He further said that specific the purpose of a Catholic education is for the formation of students who will not only be good citizens of today but also for the world to come.

Zanaco Football Club today will have to win to rescue their faltering CAF Champions League dream when they face APR of Rwanda. The two sides are tied at 0-all going into the second leg of the preliminary round after the bankers were held in their own backyard. With perhaps unfair comparisons with Zesco United’s soaring run last season in the same competition the bankers has the onerous task to win over doubters that they are worth flying the country’s flag on the continental front. Crying about departed players and the pool of unregistered foreign players who missed the deadline will not do the bankers any favours nor the cry baby antics about a bad training pitch. Zanaco will have to do the business on the pitch on foreign soil against the proverbial all odds and keep a respectable face among its fans. The trident of Fashion Sakala, Aubrey Funga and Boyd Musonda will have to deliver on foreign soil what they failed on home terrain. APR will be feeling at home at the Amahoro Stadium but it is Zanaco who could steal the show if they hit the net. Having not conceded at home the bankers could tuck the tie away with anything from a scoring draw or an outright win. An imminent first round tie lies in wait with George Lwandamina’s Yanga who carry a healthy first leg win from their first leg tie against their Comoros opponents. But the bankers have to worry about APR before they start thinking about meeting Lwandamina in the next round. The match kicks off at 15:30 (CAT) (SOURCE: Bolazambia) The post Zanaco Chase CAF Victory In Rwanda appeared first on Zambia Reports.

President Edgar Lungu has given his full backing to his under fire Patriotic Front Secretary General Davis Mwila. Mwila has just survived a public bashing over his remarks in Kabwe on the party being the controller of bus stations and markets with Luapula province chiefs going for him alleging that he has failed. Former Copperbelt province Minister Mwenya Musenge has also gone for Mwila saying that he has failed to mobilize the ruling party. However, President Lungu says Mwila was not going anywhere off the secretariat as he had just got on to work in that office. He wondered whether the people that were calling for the dismissal of Mwila wanted to be his replacement. “Why should we judge him so soon? He has only been in that office for a short time. Do they want to replace him? How do chiefs come in?†he quipped. “Anyway, I am still with Davis Mwila until I find him doing wrong.†Mwila succeeded Davies Chama who was appointed defence minister after the August 11, 2016 elections.
