The Mwata Kazembe of the Lunda people of Mwansabombwe District is concerned with the decision by the government to open schools that are not fully completed.
The Mwata Kazembe says it is worrying that some schools in his chiefdom have been opened without teachers houses and sanitation facilities saying this poses a danger to both the pupils and the teachers.
He wondered where teachers will find motivation to work in some schools especially those in rural areas when they have no basic necessities.
ZANIS reports that the Mwata Kazembe said this when Ministry of Education, Science ,Vocation Training and Early Education David Mabumba paid a courtesy call on him over the weekend.
The Mwata Kazembe said although people are in a hurry to see the new schools being opened for the benefit of their children, there is no need for government to rush into opening schools that are not fully completed.
He wandered how government could talk about lack of funds for the projects when they were planned for.
And Ministry of Education, Science, Vocation Training and Early Education Deputy Minister David Mabumba assured the Mwata that government will this year complete the construction of Kapale Secondary School in Mwansabombwe District.
Mr Mabumba said government is constructing 108 schools throughout the country an investment he said required a huge budget hence the decision by government in 2015 to prioritize the completion of selected schools in all the provinces.
The Education Deputy Minister is in the province to check on infrastructure development
