MWENEZI – It has remained an eternal nightmare for two Mwenezi schools that were promised some funds for renovations by former Zanu PF secretary for administration, Ignatius Chombo (pictured above), in the run-up to the Mwenezi East parliamentary by-election last year.
Addressing a rally in Ward 13 at Avhunga Secondary School while campaigning for the Zanu PF candidate, Joosbi Omar who went on to win the by-election, Chombo made commitments to provide funds for the renovation of classrooms blocks and teachers’ houses at the school.
He further promised the nearby Villivilli Primary School some roofing material for the completion of a classroom block.
Chombo and his then party are however yet to deliver anything to honour what they promised to the two schools that are among a list of other countless dilapidated satellite schools.
Though no comment could be obtained from authorities at the respective schools, Ward 13 councillor, Takura Mudavose expressed lack of confidence in Chombo ever fulfilling his promises now that he is out of the ruling party.
He however put his faith in the current government saying he hoped something will be done to help the many struggling schools in the district.
“It’s true that Chombo made a commitment to disburse funds to ensure renovations of the two schools. So far the promises are yet to be fulfilled.
“Although those who made the promises are no longer in the party, I am confident that our new administration under President Emmerson Mnangangwa will definitely chip in,” said Mudavose.local
