The National Action for Quality Education in Zambian is shocked that the Anti-Corruption Commission is not moved by the allegations of corruption leveled against the Teaching Service Commission.
Professional Teachers Union of Zambian General Secretary Kangwa Musenga last week told the Parliamentary Committee on Cabinet Affairs that some officials at the Commission have been asking teachers to pay between K20, 000 and K30, 000 before they can be promoted to positions of District Education Board Secretary and Provincial Education Officer respectively.
Aaron Chansa, the NAQEZ Executive Director is surprised that the ACC has remained mute over such serious allegations of corruption, which can affect the Teaching Commission’s reputation in the eyes of teachers and the general public.
And Mr Chansa who has called for fairness in the process of promoting teachers has challenged the Commission to begin advertising all vacant positions in the teaching profession to avoid perpetual allegations of corruption.
