THE Ba­sic Ed­u­ca­tion Teach­ers of Zam­bia (BETUZ) has called on the Min­istry of Gen­eral Ed­u­ca­tion to flush out fake teach­ers from the sys­tem. BETUZ na­tional trus­tee, Ms Mwan­gala Dyaunka made the call when she spoke on be­half of the other teach­ers’ unions dur­ing the com­mem­o­ra­tion of the Oc­to­ber 5, In­ter­na­tional Teach­ers Day in Chongwe.

Ms Dyaunka ap­pealed to the gov­ern­ment to al­low the due process of the law to take its course and bring the cul­prits to book.

This was in ref­er­ence to the rev­e­la­tions that some teach­ers were il­le­gally prac­tic­ing as they had fake pro­fes­sional qual­i­fi­ca­tions.

The theme of the 2017 Teach­ers’ Day was, “Teach­ing in Free­dom, Em­pow­er­ing Teach­ers.”

Ear­lier at the same func­tion, Chongwe District Com­mis­sioner, Frazer Mu­sonda, who is him­self a teacher by pro­fes­sion, said teach­ers were a crit­i­cal work­force to the ad­vance­ment of so­ci­ety.

Mr Mu­sonda ob­served that any suc­cess­ful per­son have their be­gin­ning in the teacher. He hailed the role that teach­ers play in the de­vel­op­ment of hu­man cap­i­tal.

He there­fore im­plored the teach­ers to view them­selves as very im­por­tant mem­bers of the com­mu­nity. He called on them to live up to the ex­pec­ta­tions of so­ci­ety.
