Government says it will ensure there is transparency in the teacher recruitment exercise.
General Education Permanent Secretary Henry Tukombe told ZNBC News in an interview that his Ministry is also looking at modalities of increasing the number of teachers to be recruited from the initial 2 thousand.
Mr. Tukombe has since reiterated that the Ministry of General Education does not advertise the recruitment exercise of teachers on Social Media.
The Permanent Secretary has called on members of the public to ignore Social media advertisements suggesting that his ministry is inviting applications.
And the Ministry of General Education says it is still waiting for a comprehensive report from the Teaching Service Commission and the teaching council of Zambia over unqualified teachers.
He said the Ministry of General Education wants to ensure the laid down processes are followed in dealing with the matter.
