The Patriotic Front on the Copperbelt has welcomed the decision by the Government of the Republic of Zambia to extend student’s loans to five more public universities in 2019.
The five universities that will benefit from the 1000 additional scholarships are;
Nkhwame Nkurumah Uni.
The step is unprecedented because in the past only students from CBU and UNZA were considered for education loans. With this decision, more students totalling 1000, coming from poor families will have equal opportunities to get educated and acquire the qualifications to compete for employement opportunities in the job market.
This is in line with chapter 1 on education under pages 8 to 15 of the PF manifesto booklet 2016- 2021. We promised better education from primary to tertiary level and increasing number of students loans is a fulfilment of this pledge.
