EXTEND MEAL ALLOWANCES TO PRIVATE UNIVERSITIES, COLLEGES, GOV’T URGED

By Vita Banda

THE Students Association of Zambia has called on Government to extend the allocation of meal allowances to all higher learning institutions in the country including those in the private sector.


Speaking in an interview with Millennium TV news, Association president, Austin Kachana explained that most of the students were from private higher learning institutions, who are also in need of Government’s support.
“We have been looking forward to see how the Government can focus on that because it seems like only CBU (Copperbelt University) and the University of Zambia are the only institutions that benefit from meal allowances.
We have a lot of other schools and students in other learning institutions who also want to benefit from the meal allowances but it is hard.
“So that is the reason we are also looking forward to asking the government to be fair on the issue of meal allowances. Being representatives of the Students Association, we are looking forward to asking the government and its stakeholders to shed more light on that. I personally can give an example because 90 percent of students are in the private sector while 10 percent are in the public sector,” he said.
