PROFESSIONAL Teachers Union of Zambia (PROTUZ) has urged its members to remain united as they provide quality education to the country as well as celebrate Zambiaâ€™s Golden Jubilee.
PROTUZ director of public relations John Mutale said as Zambia celebrates the Golden Jubilee and the World Teachersâ€™ Day, which falls on October 5, all teachers, regardless of their union affiliation, should turn up in large numbers and participate actively.
This yearâ€™s World Teachersâ€™ Day is held under the theme, Unite for quality education, better education for a better world.
â€œWe can only provide quality education when we are united, and together implement educational policies for the better world,â€ Mr Mutale said.
Mr Mutale said the organisation has commenced distribution of attire to all members in the country in readiness for the Golden Jubilee World Teachersâ€™ Day.
Meanwhile, ALEX NJOVU reports from Cairo, Egypt, that the golden jubilee is a landmark achievement that deserves to be celebrated by everyone, Zambiaâ€™s Ambassador to Egypt Ali Simwinga has said.
Mr Simwinga said Zambia is a blessed country that has contributed positively to the economic and social development process of the Southern African Development Community.
â€œThe golden jubilee celebration is a landmark achievement for the Southern African Development Community and Africa in general,â€ he said.
Mr Simwinga said this on Friday when he met four Zambian journalists at his office, who are attending the 39th media training course.
He said without the involvement of Zambia, many countries in the region would not have been independent.
