Government has tasked the University of Zambia- UNZA -to manage the newly built Robert Makasa University in Chinsali District.
And the Ministry of Higher Education has since handed over the Robert Makasa University to UNZA.
Director for Vocational and Entrepreneurship Training in the Ministry of Higher Education, Alex Simumba says the Ministry resolved that UNZA is best suited to run the new University.
ZNBC’s Yotam Mugara reports that Mr. Simumba disclosed this development when a team from schools of Medicine and Education inspected infrastructure at the new University in Chinsali District.
And UNZA delegation leader, Christine Kanyengo said her institution is ready to open Robert Makasa University once all formalities with government are concluded.
And Muchinga Province Permanent Secretary, Bright Nundwe has appealed to UNZA to quickly open the University.
Mr. Nundwe said the University will not only decongest the current Universities but also bring development to the province.
