Govt spends K1.8 m on Nchelenge school

General News Govt spends K1.8 m on Nchelenge school

The government has spent over K1.8 million on   infrastructure development in the education sector in Nchelenge district of Luapula Province.

Nchelenge  District Education Standards Officer Mark Kasongo said the government through the Ministry of Education allocated K1,822,090 to the district for infrastructure development.

Mr. Kasongo said the whole amount has since been disbursed through the district account and that the six beneficiary schools have already accessed the money.

Mr. Kasongo identified the recipient schools as Matola which received K240,000.00, Kalilanshindo and Kapema primary schools that got K 110, 000 and K 430, 000 respectively.

He said the rest are Kabeke Primary School on Mweru Lake that was funded to the tune of  K133,000, Munsa and Mweru Junior Secondary Schools that received K306,082 each for the construction of a 1 by 3 classroom block and two staff houses.

He said the construction works at Kapema have been completed despite the negative attitude by the community towards the provision of upfront materials.

Mr Kasongo said the works at Matola and Kalilanshindo that include the construction of a one by three classroom block and a teacher’s house respectively are both at roof level and progressing well.

He indicated that the physical structures, roofing and plastering have been done at the two institutions apart from painting.

Mr. Kasongo said the ongoing infrastructure projects will go a long way to mitigate the shortage of the learning space and improve the enrolment ratio among the pupils especially the girl child.

He further said the massive investments by the government into the education sector would improve the quality of service delivery because pupils and teachers alike would be motivated.

He observed that Kabeke primary school has been operating without any structure for a long time and that the construction of the one by two classroom block will for the first time accord pupils a chance to learn in a favorable environment.

Mr Kasongo added that the development will enable Kabeke Primary School to acquire the examination center status and reduce on the distance the pupils cover to Chinsamba Primary School about seven kilo meters to sit for examinations.
