Ministry of General Education Permanent Secretary Jobbicks Kalumba has engaged the Ministry of Finance to help source funds to activate over five thousand positions that were frozen.
Dr. Kalumba says the ministry will ensure this is done this year.
Dr. Kalumba was speaking when he addressed teachers from various schools at Don Gordon school in Lusaka as part of his familiarization tour.
Meanwhile, the Ministry has suspended the financial contributions towards co-curricular activities to the Provincial Education Officers and District Education Board Secretaries.
General Education Spokesperson Nondo Chilonga said in a statement that guidance on the matter will be provided in a ministerial statement which will be issued in Parliament by the Minister.
