Kasenge, among others, observed that civic education had the capacity to reinforce socialization which was critical in nation building.

“We should make civic education as a compulsory subject to divisions based on ethnicity and regions, indeed the directive by President Hichilema is timely,” he said.

Kasenge further noted that  the 2023 revised curriculum would go a long way in promoting national unity as it was embedded with socialization subjects that can help build the country.

He said the country cannot achieve major economic milestones if the country was divided, hence the need to find  formulae that  united  the country.

Kasenge said education systems should help unite the country as it was the platform to promote peace and unity.
