In an interview with State media on Tuesday, Primary and Secondary Education Deputy Minister Edgar Moyo said the recruitment of DSIs is critical to ensure quality education in the country in line with Vision 2030. Said Moyo:
The ministry is recruiting 220 district school inspectors across the country in line with our monitoring and supervision trajectory which depends on those people.
We have already conducted interviews and shortlisted candidates and have already presented their credentials to the Public Service Commission (PSC).
We are waiting for the accent of PSC and the numbers and these are the people we expect to fill in positions of district schools inspectors.
Moyo said the posts fell vacant following the elevations of the incumbents to other managerial positions in the ministry. He added:
The element of people acting in the ministry is a big issue, but it has its background because each time you promote people you are also creating a vacuum below. This is precisely the reason why we had so many acting DSIs.
DSIs are critical personnel in our education system because these are the people who go into the schools and ensure that the required standards are followed and enforce compliance in the ministry, which is why we need to get those positions filled up.
