The Republic of Zambia will host the AFTRA 11th Conference and 13th Roundtable. The hosting rights were announced at the AFTRA 10th Roundtable in Windhoek, hosted by the Ministry of Education, Arts and Culture and Namibia National Teachers’ Union (NANTU). The announcement was made by AFTRA President, Professor Josiah Ajiboye.
In her acceptance speech, Muneku Noriana, Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Education, Zambia who represented the Minister of Education of Zambia at the occasion eulogised AFTRA for granting the country the hosting rights. She stated her Minister’s readiness to give AFTRA one of the best hosting in the continent. It will be recalled that Zambia first hosted the Conference and Roundtable in 2016 in Livingstone. The 2024 Conference and Roundtable will take place in Lusaka, the country’s capital. Dr. Ebby Mubanga, Registrar of the Teaching Council of Zambia and AFTRA’s Deputy President supported the speech by the Minister’s representative and assured delegates and participants that Zambia has learnt many additional best practices from the hosting by Namibia and would double those best practices to give AFTRA unequalled success in the 2024 events.
