President of Zambia, Edgar Lungu has expressed disappointment with the performance of engineers in Zambia.

President Edgar Lungu opined that the engineers have not performed to the level where they can redeem themselves from disappointments as other professionals have done. He said that when a delegation from the Engineering Institute of Zambia paid a courtesy call on him at State House.

Lungu emphasized that discipline is vital for any institution and profession to thrive. He made reference to the Copperbelt University student's riotous behaviour that has led to the closure of the institution today. The step taken by Professor Nkandu Luo to close the institution is key instilling the high level of discipline in learners, he pointed out, as reported by Lusaka Times.

Engineering Institute of Zambia President Sydney Matamwandi pledged his firm support towards complementing government's efforts. Matamwandi explained that the engineers might have failed to fulfil their obligations in the past but have since reflected on their conduct and aim to improve.

Zambia has 40,000 engineers, from which only 2000 are females.
