He said the rest of the money has been promped into building schools in Siampondo, Kafwabila, Sinakasikili, Muziyo, and construction of teacher’s houses at Vwavwa primary school.
Sinazongwe District Commissioner Mungoni Simukulila said the district was happy that government has released the money for construction and rehabilitation of schools in the district to improve access to education.
Mr. Simulilika said money was already with the implementing communities.
However, the DC said he was not happy with the slow pace at which construction work was being done based on his recent tour to Kafwambila, Siampondo and Siameja.
He urged the contractors to ensure that construction and rehabilitation work was done before the rain season.
He said the committees should realise that the construction projects was for their benefit and told them to show commitment to ensure that work was completed on time.
