Malole school building nears completion

HENRY SINYANGWE, Malole
THE construction of the Kanyanta Memorial Boarding School in Malole Constituency has reached an advanced stage with most classrooms and dormitories reaching the roof level.
And over 25 staff houses have been completed with only minor touches remaining.
The facility being constructed near the Chitimukulu’s palace is expected to help curb early marriages among girls in the area.
Speaking after the tour of the facility on Tuesday, Malole member of Parliament Christopher Yaluma said he was impressed with the work.
He said the completion of the school will enable girls in the area to have access to secondary education.  Currently, Mungwi has only two secondary schools for boys.
“This is a masterpiece, modern infrastructure. Currently the whole Mungwi district has only two secondary schools which include St Francis and Mungwi Technical School for boys. We will soon have eight with the upgrading and construction of various schools in the district,” Mr Yaluma said.
The school will provide education for pupils in neighbouring primary schools.
“This place is surrounded by a lot of primary schools and most parents cannot afford to take their children to Mbala Boarding School or Kasama Girls Secondary School, so they end up marrying them off, but now that will be a thing of the past after the completion of this school and the upgrading of others,” Mr Yaluma said.
He assured that Government will continue building schools across the country to ensure that education is readily available for all citizens.
Construction site manager Sheng Bing Wang said the works are on schedule and that no challenges have been experienced.
Labour is being sourced from within the area, thereby providing employment to the locals.
