Private Company, Government Seal Deal To Build Over 2 000 Schools

Private Company, Government Seal Deal To Build Over 2 000 Schools

A private company intending to build 2 060 schools across the country has signed an agreement with the Ministry of Primary and Secondary Education and is already mobilising funds for the construction.

The development was announced by Minister Evelyn Ndlovu last week while briefing the Parliamentary Portfolio Committee on Primary and Secondary Education on the state of the education sector.

Minister Ndlovu said the agreement was signed between her ministry and Tech Brands after Cabinet approved the construction of 3 000 new schools by 2025. She said:

Thereโ€™s a private player who signed an agreement during the tenure of the previous minister in 2021 and this private player has promised to build at least 2 060 schools and these schools would be donated to Government.

So we are moving fast. We are supposed to work with partners to come up with that infrastructure in five years.

Currently, there are 9 778 public schools, 6 798 primary and 2 980 secondary, catering for over 4.9 million pupils.

The Government intends to build 35 schools this year (16 primary and 19 secondary schools), a downward revision from the targeted 50 due to resource constraints.

She said the sites for the schools had been identified while designs were done by the Ministry of Local Government and Public Works.

Government policy is to ensure that no child walks more than 5km to school.

Some existing day schools will be converted into boarding schools, while some low-cost boarding facilities will be constructed at existing schools as the need arises.

Everything is in the future tense "TO". To build schools, to drill boreholes, to create employment, to give title deeds...to make your lives better. Nothing in the present tense is being done for the citizens by these people vakapandukira Chimurenga. Macitizens AKAKA nenhamo mhani. All they have is the ZANUPF name, like Mwonzora asara nezita rekuti MDC, yet they do not even reflect GUTSARUZHINJI ideology as envisaged by real the ZANUPF that is dead and gone.

We need a golden future. We need to vote responsibly and not to keep on supporting this party of selfish and greedy indivuduals who care for no one else but themselves.

To, To and To do this and that vanhu vachiKAKA nekufira munhamo.

Pasi neFake ZANUPF bato rakapandukira Chimurenga. Pasi nevanodzipa macitizens. Pasi nevanorwisanisa macitizens.

Pamberi nezvitsva. Change is inevitable.
