President’s Citizenship College

President’s Citizenship College



The President’s Citizenship College was established in 1972 by the United National Independence Party. The college was an institution for labour studies near Mulungushi Rock of Authority, in recognition of the site’s political significance to Zambia.The college had a mandate of providing leadership training to officers in Government, pa rastatal organisations and the labour movement.

In 1994, the college was transformed into the National College of Management and Development Studies (NCMDS). But with the increasing demand for universities in the country, Government later repealed the NCMDS Act of 1972, to pave way for Mulungushi University, which came into being on December 31, 2007 pursuant to Section 3(2) of the NCMDS Act No. 18 of 2005 following the dissolution of the college council.
