Mambwe Secondary School is a secondary school located in Lusaka, Zambia.


Under this name there are three branches. Namely, Munali Boys Secondary School, Munali Girls Secondary School and Munali School for the Deaf and Blind. The school's slogan is "Only the best is good enough for Munali." The school produced the entire 1964 Independence Cabinet of the first Republican President of Zambia, Dr. Kenneth Kaunda, who himself is a former “Munalian”. The former President Mr. Rupiah Banda is also a former “Munalian”. One unofficial slogan is "Once a Munalian, always a Munalian".

Classes are called M, U, N, A, L, I, S, E, C from Grade 8 to Grade 9 and M, U, N, A, L from grades 10 to 12. This is extracted from the name of the school: Munali Secondary School. 12M was known as the Kim Jong Il Class, named after the first President of the Republic of Korea. The class received financial support from the Korean Embassy until recently when the financial aid was terminated. The University of Zambia receives many students from Munali School. The school was a secondary school up until 2001 when it became a high school. It only recently became a secondary school again after the education system was changed by the late President Michael Sata.
