UNZA, University of Dar es Salaam launch Kiswahili training exchange programme


The University of Zambia (UNZA) has introduced Kiswahili language courses in its School of Humanities.

This initiative stems from a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) signed between UNZA and the University of Dar es Salaam on July 14, 2023.

Vice Chancellor of UNZA, Mundia Muya, highlighted this development during the launch of the Kiswahili short courses programme in Lusaka on Monday.

He said: “The launch of the short courses programme in Kiswahili brings together two institutions that each in their own right stand tall in the field of language studies.”

Tanzanian High Commissioner to Zambia, Mathew Mkingule, expressed Tanzania’s commitment to promoting Kiswahili.

He stated that Tanzania would support this initiative by providing learning materials, instructors and fostering cooperation between the institutions to establish both short and long-term Kiswahili programmes.

Mkingule also noted: “Following the launch of the Kiswahili Language Teaching Class at the University of Zambia, the next phase will involve facilitating an exchange visit for officials from UNZA to the University of Dar es Salaam in Tanzania to build capacity among their Kiswahili language trainers.”
