The Media Network on Child Rights and Development has called on government to consider the re-opening of non-examination classes.

Organization Executive Director Henry Kabwe says the continued closure of schools is detrimental to children adding that they have stayed home for a very long time.

Speaking in an interview with Christian voice news in Lusaka today, Mr. Kabwe said that government should consider the re-opening of all schools under the strict Covid19 health guidelines recommended by the ministry of health.

Mr. Kabwe said that if schools do not re-open in real time, pupils will continue to be exposed to non- constructive vices that could have a bearing on their features.

He further said that there is need for the education sector to be innovative saying that the covid19 pandemic is a here to stay.
