Govt in fast track school reconstruction in Chimanimani

The government says it is fast-tracking reconstruction of damaged infrastructure at schools across Chimanimani to restore normalcy before the second term opens next month.

Last month’s Cyclone Idai left many schools destroyed, while roads and bridges are inaccessible, a situation that has terribly affected community members as they can no longer go about their normal daily routines.

However, there is light at the end of the tunnel as the government has already begun restoration of damaged infrastructure, particularly schools.

This Sunday, the Minister of Primary and Secondary Education Professor Paul Mavima and Minister of Local Government, Public Works and National Housing Cde July Moyo visited several schools in Chimanimani to assess the damage and monitor progress made so far in restoring normalcy.

Last term, schools in Chimanimani were forced to close following the destruction caused by Cyclone Idai and expectations are that lost time will be compensated when schools open on the 7th of May.

Some of the schools visited include Ndieme Primary and satellite schools, Muchadziya, Demeni and Mutsvangwa.
