‘Stay in school for better future’

VICE-PRESIDENT Inonge Wina has urged Petauke Secondary School pupils not to abandon classes if they have to attain their dreams of becoming future leaders.
She said pupils should work hard so that they can also become vice-presidents like her in the future.
The Vice-President said this at the boarding school grounds on Friday. She was in the Province for three days to check on developmental projects, visit chiefs, government officials and drum up support for Patriotic Front (PF) Parliamentary by-election candidates for Petauke and Malambo, Dora Siliya and Jacob Shuma, respectively, ahead of the polls on June 30.
“Education is very important and I want you to study hard, not to abandon class, and as for you girls, we want you to complete school not be married off,” she said, adding that it is possible for pupils to become presidents and vice-presidents if they focus on education.
And when she paid a courtesy call on Chief Mumbi at his palace, Mrs Wina said Government will finish construction of Mumbi Boarding Secondary School. This was after the chief told her that works has stalled.
Chief Mumbi said once the school is completed, youth will access education within his chiefdom. He also appealed to Government to consider setting up a public university for pupils to access tertiary education.
He said youths need to be exposed to education and life skills.
