Chirundu Salvation Army roasts rumour mongers

Written by on August 12, 2019


THE Salvation Army in Chirundu has dismissed rumours that it is planning to replace teachers at its local primary school that are not members of the church starting from next year.

Citadel Lieutenant Victor Mwiinga said that the information was false and should be dismissed with the contempt it deserved

Lt Mwiinga told the Sun however that whatever suggestions made by the school had to be approved at the Salvation Army headquarters.

He further explained that all the teachers at the school had been certified by the Teaching Council of Zambia (TCZ) and were working on a year contract.

He said the contract could be renewed by an individual or terminated by the school management if a teacher misbehaved or voluntarily wished to part ways with the institution.

Lt Mwiinga further said that rumours in the community could have started after a meeting that was held with teachers and chaired by the school coordinator Mr. Honest Hachikulu who raised concerns over the morning devotions on Mondays and Fridays.

Mr Hachikulu claimed that the devotions were not seriously considered by the assigned teachers and charged that maybe it was because some teachers belonged to other denominations.

But Lt Mwiinga maintained that the school management followed the laws of the land and worked with the government of the day, citing the curriculum followed that was recommended by the State.

He suspected there could be a few frustrated individuals among the teachers who were trying to disturb the school management hence the falsehoods being spread in the community.

Lt Mwiinga has since warned those frustrated individuals to desist from pushing the management against the wall because the outcome could be seriously negative. He has called on the public to ignore the rumours.
