Connect schools to power, DC urges REA

ALEX NJOBVU and NKOMBO KACHEMBA, Lufwanyama

LUFWANYAMA district commissioner Alex Kalela has appealed to the Rural Electrification Authority (REA) to connect schools in the district to the national electricity grid to enable teachers to effectively teach computer subjects.
Government has introduced computers as a subject at junior secondary school level, which is compulsory and will be examined by the ExaminationS Council of Zambia.
In an interview, Mr Kalela appealed to REA to expeditiously connect schools to the national electricity grid to enable teachers and pupils use the computers which Government plans to procure soon.
“I can safely say about 90 percent of the schools are not connected to the national electricity grid. These schools do not even have computers for the teachers to introduce the computer lessons,” Mr Kalela said.
