CON­FU­SION is brew­ing at Kitwe Col­lege of Ed­u­ca­tion (KCE) where Prin­ci­pal An­drew Mu­tobo is al­legedly re­sist­ing de­ploy­ment to the Min­istry of Ed­u­ca­tion Head­quar­ters as As­sis­tant Di­rec­tor. The de­vel­op­ment has in­fu­ri­ated lec­tur­ers who are de­mand­ing that he should leave for his new po­si­tion to fore­stall di­vi­sions at the in­sti­tu­tion.

Mr Mu­tobo on the other hand said it was not true that the lec­tur­ers do not like him, in­sist­ing that only a few of them were against him. “It is also not true that my lec­tur­ers do not like me.
