Written by on January 28, 2022

Some residents in Kitwe have expressed concern over the manner in which unnamed school officials are compelling parents and guardians to buy uniforms from their school.

In separate interviews with Flava Fm News, the residents disclosed that  a named head teacher in Kitwe are still compelling parents to buy school uniforms from a shop believed to be owned by the school.

But when contacted, the head teacher denied the accusations, saying that they were baseless rumors and that the school is still accepting uniforms bought elsewhere as long as the bear the school requirement.

And Copperbelt Provincial Education Officer Felix Ngoma has dispelled assertions saying there are no schools in the province that are compelling parents to purchase uniforms from schools.

Mr. Ngoma says the Provincial Education Department has not yet received any reports of schools that are selling uniforms.

He adds that parents should be free to buy uniforms from anywhere and that the uniforms should not be a hindrance for any pupil not to go to school.
