General Education Permanent Secretary Henry Tukombe has accused teachers on the Copperbelt of ‘defaming’ Edgar Lungu’s administration.
He made the claims today when he addressed teachers at the Mufulira College of Education adding that he was aware of a number of teachers who are active in ‘partisan’ politics and defaming the government.
Tukombe warned that ‘erring’ teachers will not be spared as civil servants must ‘support’ the government.
Edgar Lungu had at one time also accused teachers of belong to opposition parties during one of his visits to the Copperbelt.
The PF has however been abusing the civil service by appointing their cadres to key positions as Permanent Secretaries and District Commissioners
The irrelevant office of District Commissioners is almost exclusively for PF cadres and is being used to exert some influence especially in areas where the PF has no representation at local and parliamentary level.
