One classroom and home economics department office had one side of their roofs completely blown off while the computer lab had a few iron sheets removed.

Mr. Kamuna explained that apart from a few desks which got damaged as they  got soaked, nothing else was destroyed.

The  district administration working together with the local authority will utilize the five percent disaster fund component under Constituency Development Fund (CDF) to repair the damaged roof before rains intensify.

The remote Town has recently experienced significant amount of rainfall activities.
