General Education Permanent Secretary, Jobbicks Kalumba has promoted Chisanga Chilala , a teacher at Kifubwa Primary School in Solwezi.
The teacher, who has been babysitting one of her pupils’ sibling, while conducting lessons, has been promoted to the position of Deputy Headteacher.
This comes barely 5 months, after pictures of Ms Chilala went viral on social media, where she is depicted teaching with a baby on her back.
Dr Kalumba said such productive and caring teachers must be motivated because they fulfill a teacher’s commitment of serving the interest of the learner.
Meanwhile, speaking when addressing teachers from North-Western province at Solwezi College of Education, Dr Kalumba has warned that any teacher, who will not abide by the Ministry’s policies, risks getting demoted or fired.
