A member of Monze’s Hatontola Ward Development Committee, Webster Chitauka has asked government to extend the Free Education policy to pupils who intend to sit for General Certificate of Education – GCE exams.

Chitauka says center and entry fees of K175 as well as per subject fees of K125 are too high for some people, which hinders some students from sitting for the examinations.

According to Byta FM, Chitauka says the country has many intelligent pupils who are loitering in the streets as they were not able to acquire their certificates due to challenges in funding their education.

Chitauka remarks that extending the free education policy to the GCE level will give such pupils a chance to complete their education and pursue further studies.

Meanwhile, Monze Based Youth, Pythias Ngosa, has appealed to government to extend the free education policy to the university level.

He says there are multitudes of students who are Intelligent but cannot afford to pursue further education.
