6 Lundazi schools get electricity

SIX schools in Lundazi in Eastern Province have been electrified through the Constituency Development Fund (CDF) at K220 million.
Lundazi district commissioner Janet Palulani said the electrification of the schools was completed in June this year.
Ms Palulani named the schools as Lusuntha Day Secondary, Kakumba, Chijemu, Msuzi, Kanele and Kapili primary.
“The electrification of the schools was conducted by the district council with funds from the CDF,” she said.
Ms Palulani said in an interview that the electrification of education facilities in the district is aimed at improving the standards of teaching and learning.
She said pupils at the six schools will now be able to study using electricity as opposed to candles.
Ms Palulani cited other developments in the district as the extension of the township boundary.
She said 4,870 hectares of new land was recently allocated to the local authority by a traditional leader and that what is remaining is mapping.
Ms Palulani said the local authority, with support from the Ministry of Local Government and Housing, has successfully drilled 13 boreholes in selected villages.
She said the Eastern Water and Sewerage Company has also completed the project to supply water to the new district hospital under the urban water and sanitation project.
On roads, Ms Palulani said K18 million has been allocated for the construction of 15 kilometres of urban roads in the district.
Ms Palulani said so far, K12 million has been released for the project and that works are progressing well.
