OUR universities, public or private, are the engines of a knowledge economy and an incubator for skilled labour. They are crucial to industrial research and development strategies. They shape, or have immense potential to shape, Zambia's future by training our people in crosscutting skills. Dr Kenneth Kaunda once said that a "University is one of the keys that can open the door to the future of our nation and help us to overcome the persisting evils of poverty, ignorance and diseases; without such an institution we cannot hope to become the nation we want to be".
