There would be no Zambia without teachers, says Sata

PRESIDENT Michael Sata says the importance of teachers in the country cannot be underestimated.

During the junior achievers mentorship programme at State House yesterday, President Sata said there could be no Zambia without teachers, adding that there was need to look after them well.

And President Sata gave a pair of shoes and mathematical sets to each of the 30 junior achievers and also took time to interact and pose for photographs with the elated pupils from all the 10 provinces of Zambia.

Meanwhile, first lady Dr Christine Kaseba encouraged the pupils to work hard at school and also advised the girls not to be distracted by money from sugar daddies.

“Concentrate on your studies and do not be distracted by money that comes from sugar daddies because you will be able to make more money than what you will be given to distract your studies.
