      You can bet your last coin that this will be used for political campaigns by both sides… the ruling party and the opposition!

  1. Even if they upgrade two basic schools, how are they going to be able to afford paying teachers? The government seems to lack morals. They eat, feed them fat selves and children, send their children to expensive schools abroad. Those school fees alone for 20 children sent abroad can pay for upgrading our hospitals and education systems. But pure greed is in their blood and umutima! They have bought homes abroad, send their kids to universities and their kids live in those homes or they put the home up for rent. This is what politicians do with your tax money.
