Govt to take over Sathya Sai school

Victor Kanu and Mrs Genoveva Kanu

MINISTRY of General Education permanent secretary Henry Tukombe says Government will soon finalise the process of taking over Sathya Sai private school in Ndola.
Sathya Sai, which is in Pamodzi township and has been one of the best schools in the city, has asked the government to take over the institution.
Mr Tukombe said the handover process was at an advanced stage and was being handled by the Ministry of Justice.
“Right now, discussions are under-way on issues to do with the Act [law] and memorandum of understanding,” he said.
Mr Tukombe said the school was not the only one that had asked Government to take it over, but that there were three others.
“We have just come from the Catholic arrangement where the Ministry of General Education is taking over a school and there are three more schools where they want the same arrangement,” he said.
Mr Tukombe urged the school management to be patient because the Ministry of Justice was working on the documentation and the Ministry of General Education was expecting a feedback.
Sathya Sai Primary and Secondary schools were established in 1992 by Mr Victor Kanu and Mrs Genoveva Kanu.
Ms Kanu has asked Government to take over the school.
She said the school was currently facing a number of challenges that included lack of teachers and classrooms to meet demand.
Ms Kanu said the situation was critical for the school and required more teachers and text books for the new syllabus for grades two, three and four classes.
