Luo must stop handling students’ loans casually – ZANASUBy Tenson Mkhala on 23 Mar 2017
The Zambia National Students Union says Higher Education Minister Proffessor Nkandu Luo must avoid handling issues of students’ loans casually.
Speaking to journalist in Lusaka today, ZANASU vice president Eddie Miyoba said students were worried with the manner in which Prof Luo was handling issues of student loans.
“We as ZANASU want to warn madam Nkandu Luo to avoid this laissez-faire way of addressing the students loan this country. We are urging her to quickly come up with a well defined legal framework towards students financing of loans,” Miyoba said.
And Miyoba said the motion by Mazabuka Central member of parliament Garry Nkombo that more funds should be allocated to University of Zambia students was demeaning to other tertiary institutions in the country.
“UNZA is not the only school that need funds from government. We have Evelyn Hone, Solwezi Trades, Robert Makasa, Mukuba among others that need funding. We are disappointed that the MP only singled out UNZA as if other students are not facing problems,” he said.
Miyoba disclosed that the students community had been faced with a lot of challenges such as shortage of infrastructure which government had failed to work on even after numerous promises.
“Look at the condition of most of these government institutions. We are commanding the government to double its effort in addressing some of the serious challenges we are facing,” said Miyoba.
Meanwhile, Zambia National Youth Think Tank deputy executive director Mumba Tebulu advised Prof Luo to be cautious of issues which affected students in the country.
“The fact is students needs support from government and I think madam Nkandu Luo should seriously look into what Nkombo said in Parliament,” said Tebulu.Related Items
