The Minister of Primary and Secondary Education Lazaras Dokora has said the students who are learning the Nambya language are now in form three which means that next year they will be sitting for the language's examination and that meant progress on government's move to promote indigenous languages.

This was after the MP  Sansole asked him what measures have been put in place to ensure that the Nambya language is examined at O' level next year.

"The first group of students who studied Nambya at secondary schools are now in Form 3, are there any measures that have been put in place to ensure that the language is examined at O' level next year?"  the MP asked.

"I would like to know also from the Minister of Higher and Tertiary Education Science and Technology Development whether any measures have been put in place to ensure that the language is taught..."

Dokora said the natural and logical sequencing of the development of indigenous languages follows that when pupils sit the Grade 7 examination.

"They proceed to study the same language if they so wish at O' level and therefore to say that they are now in Form 3 is to acknowledge that the Ministry is already doing well at what is set out to achieve.  So, next year they will sit for examination as expected," he said.
