A roof blown off by heavy rains at Hoya Basic School in Lundazi district has not been repaired for two years.

Kapilisanga Ward Councillor, Mathews Zimba has complained over government’s delay to rehabilitate a one by three classroom block at Hoya Basic School in Lundazi.

Mr. Zimba told Breeze News in Lundazi that the classroom, whose roof was blown off two years ago, has affected learning hours at the school.

The area councillor revealed that the school authorities have decided to reduce learning hours so that all pupils have access to lessons.

Mr. Zimba has appealed to Ministry of Education to come to their aid as the school was the biggest in the ward.

And Lundazi District Education Standards Officer, DESO, Chiza Mtonga says that the office is aware of the situation at Hoya Basic School.

He revealed that the district has recorded fifteen schools whose roofs have been blown off by heavy rains, adding that the DEBS office is not sitting idle.
