Unemployed teachers a shocker

Dear Editor
I am shocked that government through the Ministry of General Education was not aware of the more than 50,000 unemployed teachers loitering the streets of this great nation Zambia until it was brought to light two days ago.
It is even more worrying for the ministry of general education through it Spokesperson to confirm that they are actually in need of teachers and will forth hence engage the Ministry of Finance for authority and recruitment financial allocation.
These are people making the President seem like he is not work because how did they go to sleep over such a serious matter? Its shocking that the ministry of general education don’t have statistics of teachers on the street, meaning they don’t even make follow ups to know how many teachers are offloaded on the market yearly, which is unacceptable.
How then do they want government to plan without such very important information, yet we have people on the government payroll who are supposed to help in proper data dissemination for proper government action?
Madam Nondo Chilongo, the Ministry of general education spokesperson has clearly stated that the ministry is in need of teachers since the last recruitment was two years ago and government should just recruit since there is shortage of teachers countrywide.
