The Ministry of Education says it has allocated K88 billion in this year’s budget for the construction of high schools in the country.
Ministry of Education Head of Infrastructure Joseph Nthele says the allocation
would be used to construct 32 high schools across the nine provinces in Zambia.
Mr Nthele disclosed this in an interview with ZANIS in mkushi today.
He explained that each high school would cost the Ministry K25 billion to complete adding that the ministry is hoping to receive more founds in the next budgets so that the building of schools would be complete on time.
