Run down infrastructure at Sisinje Primary School worries villagers

Villagers in Sisinje Ward of Chipata district are unhappy with poor infrastructure at Sisinje Primary School.
The villagers have accused government of making unfulfilled promises, stating that in 2010, it assured the villagers that 341 million Kwacha would be given to the school to improve infrastructure but this has not been done.
Chimodzi Banda says that the school, which was constructed in 1967, only has two classroom blocks and has not been rehabilitated.
Mr. Banda accused Sisinje Ward Councillor, Samuel Lugomo Phiri of doing nothing to address the matter despite knowing the pathetic situation at the school.
And when contacted for comment, Sisinje Ward Councillor, Samuel Lugomo Phiri appealed to the villagers to exercise more patience as Ministry of Education has promised to release the money as soon as it is available.
Mr. Phiri explained that he has held several meetings with education authorities who have assured him that infrastructure at the school will be improved.
He also indicated that plans were underway to use some of the CDF, Constituency Development Fund to build a one by three classroom block at the school.
