 swapping debts for public service workers cheers Teachers

By ALICE NACHILEMBE

The National Action for Quality Education in Zambia has expressed happiness that President Edgar Lungu has assented to the idea of swapping debts for Teachers and public service workers.

NAQEZ Executive Director Aaron Chansa said this is what Teachers have been waiting for.

Mr Chansa said the nation will recall that recently, NAQEZ revealed that more than 90% of Government Teachers are heavily indebted.

He siad their made an appeal for quick interventions because the debt situation among Teachers is desperate and terribly affecting teaching in schools.

Mr Chansa said the debt swap is welcome but it should be coupled with impartation of financial literacy and debt management skills to teachers.

He said this will enable them make economically good decisions in future and avoid getting into too much debt again.

Mr Chansa has called upon all interest groups to support the President on debt swap and as an organization, fervently hope that all Governmental entities responsible to effect this Presidential pronouncement will quickly actualize it.
