NACE lecturers protest over unpaid salariesBy Daniel Chansa on 16 Feb 2018
Nkana Academy College of Education lecturers yesterday gathered at the Kitwe City Square protesting nine months in unpaid salaries.
The go slow by lectures, which started at the Kalulushi Campus, has entered day three, spreading to all its branches in Kitwe, Luanshya and Ndola.
The Workers, comprising of lecturers and other staff, started their protest on Tuesday and have vowed not to resume normal operations until their demands are met.
They have turned down managements’ decision to give them a part payment of two months.
The lecturers are also demanding payment of gratuity and other emoluments owed to them since 2015 as per contractual agreement.
“This institution should not play with our feelings. We want money. We have a lot of students across the Copperbelt and they pay a lot of money. We don’t know where they are taking the money. The problem is that this director (Daniel Makina) is a PF cadre who wants to stand as MP in Chimwemwe so he is spending a lot of money in politics seeking to be adopted. Now we have families and we can’t continue to offer our services without a salary. Nine months is not a joke,” one of the protesting lecturers said.
And when contacted, Nkana Academy College of Education finance manager Prisca Makina says the institution started paying the lecturers on Monday and the process was ongoing.
“We dont know what the protest is all about. We started paying them on monday. It is just some people that were fired that are causing these unknown protests,” said Makina.Related Items
