REPUBLICAN President Edgar Lungu will this Friday, February 19, 2021, commission the newly-completed University of Zambia (UNZA) teaching and learning complex.
The complex is housing two lecture theatres with a cumulative sitting capacity of 700 students.
The teaching and learning complex, constructed at the UNZA main campus in the space between the Confucius Institute and the Population Studies teaching building, has been constructed using funds internally generated by UNZA through the partnership with Graduare Property Development Zambia Limited, the proprietors of East Park Mall.
University acting head of communication and marketing, Brenda Bukowa, today told The Scoop in a statement that arising from the devastating effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, the ceremony to be graced by the Head of State shall be highly restricted to management of the university and its partners, Government officials and selected media outlets.
“To allow all stakeholders an opportunity to participate in the commissioning process, the event will be live-streamed on all UNZA official social media platforms,” Dr. Bukowa said.
