UNIVERSITIES CHALLENGED TO SOLVE COUNTRY’S PROBLEMS
An academician from Mulungushi University has called on institutions of Higher Learning in Zambia to provide training programmes that respond to the country’s challenges.
Mr. CHILAYI MAYONDI who is Assistant Dean in the school of business at Mulungushi University says Zambia needs highly skilled manpower in key areas of the economy such as science, agriculture and business.
Mr. MAYONDI says it is pointless to have graduates who cannot make a difference in society.
He told ZNBC news in Ndola that this is why Mulungushi University has taken a decision to help governments programme of promoting agriculture, Science and Entrepreneurship.
Mr. MAYONDI said this is being done by providing solution oriented training programmes in critical sectors such as health.
