A 1×3 classroom block at Musangila Basic School in Chief Kanongesha’s area of Mwinilunga District in North Western province has been blown off by heavy storm.
Musangila Basic School Head Teacher Jonathan Manjomba who confirmed the development in an interview with ZANIS in Mwinilunga today, said the incident happened last week and left a trail of destruction to the school infrastructure and property.
He said 80 iron sheets including 60 grade one reading books, some desks, three bags of curl-peas and 6×50 kilogram bags of maize meant for the school feeding program have been destroyed.
Mr Manjomba said the development will pose a big challenge to the pupils as schools open next week adding that only three classrooms have been left to cater for over 500 pupils from grade one to Nine.
He has since appealed to government through the Disaster Management And Mitigation Unity (DMMU)to quickly come to the aid of the learning institution.
