The National Union of Public and Private Educators of Zambia NUPPEZ has welcomed government’s decision to recruit 1,200 teachers this year.

NUPPEZ General Secretary Nelson Mwale says the number is fair owing to the financial challenges the country is facing emanating from the covid19 pandemic.

Mr. Mwale has told Christian voice news that the number is however not enough to curtail the teacher to pupil ratio currently obtaining in schools.

But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions—it is by grace you have been saved.
