Meanwhile PRISAM has commended the President saying this will assist so many students in need of support whose parents cannot afford.

President for PRISAM Dr Ernest Kaonga said their body has been providing support to needy students from secondary schools and Universities.

“Our body receives so many letters from students seeking school fees.Currently we adopted students from secondary and Universities who have no support,” he said.

So we applaud the President, because many students will be able to access education once their loans are revised,” he said
