Kinshasa, October 5th 2022 (CPA).– The Minister of Primary, Secondary and Technical Education (EPST), Prof Tony Mwaba Kazadi, paid, on Wednesday, a visit to the national headquarters of the Teachers’ Health Mutual (MESP ), in Kinshasa, to ensure the quality of care given to teachers and their dependents.
He said he was satisfied with the realities he found on the ground, which reassured him of good conditions of medical care for teachers and members of their families.
This inspection visit, he said, follows the instructions of the President of the Republic, Felix Antoine Tshisekedi Tshilombo, who is concerned with the social status of the teacher, a prerequisite for improving the quality of the education provided to the children as well as the consolidation and sustainability of free primary education.
The Chairman of MESP Board of Directors, Guy Mafuta, who welcomed the Minister of EPST, expressed a positive feeling about the presence of Prof. Tony Mwaba in their premises.
“Minister Tony Mwaba came to see how the mutual fund works. And on the spot, we were with someone who already has an idea of what he expects from us. This explains why he immediately found solutions to the problems posed. I think he had an idea to launch a workshop to express the real needs and find out how the government is going to support the Mutual which carries out social work in the lives of teachers”, he said.
He said that it is thanks to the data made available to the mutual by the Teacher Payroll Control Service (SECOPE) that the lists of teachers to be supported were established. ACP/
