South part of development – Kaingu


SOUTHERN Province has not been left out in infrastructure development embarked on by Government, says Minister of Education Science Vocation Training and Early Education, Michael Kaingu.
Speaking during the commissioning classrooms at James Corboy School in Mazabuka on Thursday, Dr Kaingu said out of the 118 secondary schools that are being constructed countrywide, eight are in Southern Province.
Dr Kaingu said this through his deputy David Mabumba. The classroom was built by Toyota Zambia.
Dr Kaingu also said out of the 220 primary schools that are being upgraded, 22 schools are in Southern Province.
“Southern Province is getting a share of the massive infrastructure development Government initiated not only in construction and upgrading of schools but also in the construction of roads such as the Bottom Road and health posts, among others,” he said.
Dr Kaingu commended Toyota Zambia for supplementing Government’s effort in providing quality education.
He said the support by Toyota to the education sector was in line with Government’s policy aimed at providing quality education.
Dr Kaingu said Government will continue providing an enabling social and economic environment for the private sector to thrive.
“The growth and sustainability of any business in Zambia depends largely in the trust and support it receives from the people, hence the appropriateness of the motto, Zambia drives Toyota,” he said.
Toyota Zambia chief executive officer John Connell said the company will continue to support Government’s effort and initiatives in providing quality education.
Mr Connell said the construction of the classroom is in line with Government’s policy of making education accessible to all.
