The 5th of August was a relieving moment for Chidi villagers in Zaka as the community’s school block which had been destroyed by heavy rains in December last year was successfully restored and officially opened.
The block was officially opened by the District Education Officer Biullah Shambambeva as Zaka North Member of Parliament Robson Mavhenyengwa witnessed the event.
Mavhenyengwa was the man behind the repair of the classroom block with the aid of PLAN International.
The Member of Parliament who also donated books to the school on the event said the move was very important to the people in his constituency.
“This is a breath taking moment to us as the people of Chidi village – it is worth noting that we have managed to accomplish this task in a very difficult moment. This disaster came at a time when the Tokwe – Mkosi disaster also befell our beloved province or can I say sister constituency, so sourcing for aid when there was such a bigger sister problem was not easy,” said Mavhenyengwa.

Enoch Mhlanga the headmaster was thankful and promised to continue accelerating towards quality education as the school has continually advanced its pass rate since 2009.
Chidi Primary School houses 261 pupils altogether.
