‘Release money for completion of Shimbizhi Secondary School’

MUMBWA district commissioner Felix Ndopu has urged the Ministry of General Education to release money for the completion of Shimbizhi Day Secondary School in chief Mumba’s area.
The K15 million project started in 2013 but has stalled since 2015.
Mr Ndopu said once the school was completed and opened, the challenges pupils in Chief Mumba’s area experienced in accessing secondary education would end.
“We have a situation in some cases where pupils are covering 10 kilometres to reach Mumbwa Secondary School,” he said.
Mr Ndopu said the opening of Shimbizhi Day Secondary would help pupils access secondary education within a manageable distance.
He said there would also be a relief for parents who were spending a lot of money to send their children to other secondary schools.
“We have primary schools but our people are having challenges in accessing secondary schools. This is why we will be happy if Shimbizhi Day Secondary is completed,” Mr Ndopu said.
He said the school would have eight classrooms, two laboratories, a library, an assembly hall, 10 houses for teachers and ablution blocks for male and female pupils.
And Mr Ndopu said the construction of a trades school would address the shortage of tertiary education in Mumbwa.
Mr Ndopu said the trades school would cost K4.5 million and that the project was at phase one.
