UNZA workers not yet paid for Feb

 

By Ishmael M Kaunda

It makes sad reading, that, up to now lecturers and other University of Zambia workers have not been paid their February salaries due to gross incompetence from government and UNZA management.

Where does UNZA management channel the resources that they collect if they can not even pay lectures and other workers?? Where is the money channelled to, that is approved and allocated to the Ministry of Higher Education???

Abolishing allowances and chasing students who don’t pay tuition fees, you’re in the forefront, but when it comes to responsibility you’re nowhere to be seen! Why?? UNZA management says its beyond their responsibility alone, so whose responsibility is it if not the Ministry of Higher Education??

Prof Luo, please up your game now or resign on moral ground together with the University of Zambia Management, because that’s not only incompetence, but failure to manage resources at the highest learning institution and the Ministry of Higher Education in particular.

Please resign now….. you have failed, ever since you came to the Higher Education Ministry, nothing tangible or beneficial has been seen, except you scandalizing students! They are tired of your fake and non profitable services!!
The students are now missing classes due to incompetence and failure from government and UNZA management to pay the lectures and workers, who have apparently stopped giving their services until they are paid their February dues!

Leave now!!

    You raise the question as to where the money UNZA management collects goes if it cannot pay lecturers. Here are a number of issues to think of. Where in the world do you have a situation obtaining at UNZA where lecturers who carry out the core business constitute 33% of the workforce and support staff make up 66%? Even when student numbers have increased, there is a freeze on the recruitment of lecturers. But there is no such a freeze on the recruitment of support staff! Some corrupt UNZA managers continue using their positions to recruit girl friends, relatives and friends as support staff. UNZA managers are also woefully wasteful. They make frequent trips abroad which bring little benefits to the institution. Even when a CEO of UNZA has his trip paid for by foreign sponsors, if he is sent an economy class ticket he demands that UNZA upgrades this to business class. If, say, an economy class ticket cost less than K10, 000, when upgraded to business class the cost would jump to somewhere in the region of K 30,000. Not forgetting sitting allowances of not less that K 2,000 each UNZA managers continue paying themselves for every management meeting they hold.These are things Ministry of Higher Education needs to have oversight on and address.

So you have a situation where a initially bought for him at a cost of not more than K 15,000 would be upgraded as to cost somewhere in the region of K 30,000. Not forgetting sitting allowances of not less that K 2,000 each that UNZA managers pay themselves for every management meeting.These are some of the answers as to where money goes that management collects.

      Why get management sitting allowances when you salaried employs. Only in Zambia. And the Auditor General allows it? One would understand if it was the council of the university getting sitting allowances.
