61 YEAR OLD WOMAN INSPIRES MANY FOR GOING BACK TO SCHOOL 40 YEARS AFTER SHE DROPPED OUT

A 61-year-old woman has inspired many after she decided to go back to school to re-start grade 10 at Mufulira School of Continuing Education in Zambia.

Despite the move, the woman Margaret Nakombe Mubanga is married with six children.

“I dropped out of school after getting married at the early age of 18,” she told Radio Icengelo’s Patrick Mupeta.

“I have gone back to school to inspire the girl child. I want to see all the girls who dropped out of school to go back,” Mrs Mubanga said.

Mubanga said she refused to take into consideration negative comments she receives from other villagers.

“When I am going to school people in the neighborhood pass negative comments saying what does she want to achieve at this advanced age but I don’t get discouraged because I know what I want to achieve in life,” Mrs Mubanga said.
