Kawambwa District Commissioner, Gershom Tanga
DC has bemoaned poor accommodation for teachers in some schools in the district.
Mr Tanga said some houses especially in rural areas are in bad shape and
need rehabilitation if teachers are to be attracted to go to rural schools.
He said teachers shun rural schools because of the houses that
he described as inhabitable.
He was speaking in Kawambwa yesterday when he officially opened
his first District Development Coordinating Committee (DDCC) meeting since he was appointed in the area.
Mr Tanga pointed out that some houses have developed big cracks that a
person can even be seen inside adding that this is making teachers refuse
to be posted to such rural institutions.
He has however, appealed to the DDCC members to help monitor projects
that are being under taken in the district to ensure quality works.
He has challenged the DDCC in the area to work together to foster development in the district.
Mr Tanga said that government put in place the DDCC to coordinate programmes and activities and members should work as a team to enhance development.
He said the DDCC is an important body of the district that is supposed
to implement government programmes and other developmental activities.
Mr Tanga said any member whether from government, parastatals or Non
Governmental Organisations (NGOs) who will not attend DDCC meetings
will be considered to be absent for work.
