The National Democratic Congress Party (NDC) has demanded the immediate resignation of Inspector General of Police Kakoma Kanganja for alleged unprofessional conduct. NDC National Youth chairperson Charles Kabwita has charged that the behaviour exhibited by the Inspector General of Police in appointing eight Chinese nationals in the Zambia Police Reserve is an act of gross misconduct. He said with such behaviour there is no need for the Inspector General of Police to continue holding his position when he has exhibited levels of unprofessionalism. Kabwita has said it is shocking that Kanganga commissioned the Chinese nationals without putting in mind the danger such a move poses on the country’s security. “The behaviour by the Inspector General of Police is disappointing and we are demanding that he resigns from his position for his unprofessional conduct” Kabwita said. He has further condemned Home Affairs Minister Steven Kampyongo for allowing such a move to go on. Kabwita said the silence from the home affairs Minister is a sign of failure and should be fired. Kanganja has since rescinded his decision on the appointment of eight Chinese nationals as Zambia police reserve. The post Kanganja Must Resign – NDC Youth Leader appeared first on Zambia Reports.

Engineering Institute of Zambia Vice President Eng. Abel Ngandu has charged that the industry is getting a raw deal from graduates coming from different institutions of higher learning. Eng. Ngandu said it was difficult to incorporate graduates in the industry as most of them have no technical knowledge of different engineering related programs. He said the current situation has led to the country to continue importing human resource as those trained local need further training before being employed. “We have a serious problem because some of these graduates can’t do any serious practical work. yOu get them and that means YOU have to start retraining them, which is very unproductive,” he said. Eng. Ngandu said there was a need for partnership with higher institutions of learning to prepare a cadre of engineers that will add value to the country’s economic growth. Eng. Ngandu stated that young engineers need to be prepared to a certain level that will enable them to respond to engineering challenges in the industries. He said with a good cadre of engineers, Zambia will not be importing engineers from China or other countries. The post Quality of New Engineers Worries EIZ appeared first on Zambia Reports.
