Ministry of General Education Permanent Secretary – Administration Felix Phiri has dispelled assertions circulating on social media regarding the teacher recruitment exercise.
Dr. Phiri says Government is NOT replacing any names on the list as alleged and that the Ministry will soon make an announcement regarding recruited teachers.
He said there are a number of issues that are being considered and once the process is complete, the list of recruited teachers will be carried through various media platforms.
The Permanent Secretary was speaking when ZNBC Director General Richard Mwanza paid a courtesy call on him at his office in Lusaka today.
And Dr. Phiri added that the Digital Migration of ZNBC offers a lot of opportunities to disseminate Education materials.
He said the Ministry looks forward to having a Memorandum of Understanding signed with the National Broadcaster so that the two entities look at content creation and delivery.
And Mr. Mwanza said ZNBC is ready to resume broadcast of educational programmes on its radio and television channels in line with its public service mandate.
He has expressed confidence that a successful collaboration between the Ministry and ZNBC will lead to enriched content on ZNBC platforms.
