Mulembe 1×3 CRB was constructed at a cost of Six Hundred Eighty Eight Thousand Kwacha- K688,000 by a local Contractor Mixwest Hardware Limited.
Handing over the classroom Blocks, Lukulu East Member of Parliament Hon. Christopher Kalila said he was very excited to hand over the improved infrastructure to the community.
He said this was in line with the New Dawn Administration policies to provide quality Education to all through having good infrastructure.
He thanked the community members for their initiative of building pole and mud classrooms when the schools started as community schools before being Gazetted.
The Member of Parliament also applauded both the Contractors for the neat and quality works.
“The quality works of these infrastructures just look as much as those in town, and this is what the president wants.” He said
During the same event the Member of Parliament also motivated youths by giving them football balls to both female and male teams in order to encourage them in participating in sports activities.
Speaking at the same event, Council Chairperson Layson Malyachila advised teachers to put more efforts in impacting knowledge in Pupils so as to enhance good performance.
And District Education Board Secretary (DEBS) Mr. Terry Chiwaya said he was thankful for the new classroom blocks. He said this will serve as motivation to pupils to get interested in coming to school for lessons.
He assured the community that his office will look at the issue of upgrading the schools from Primary to Secondary so that pupils do not end up stopping school in grade 7 due to long distance in accessing Secondary Schools.
Mr. Chiwaya concluded by advising the pupils to look after the infrastructures well by not vandalising them as the Government has put in so much, hence the need to look after the properties.
Hon. Christopher Kalila was in Company of Lukulu District Commissioner Mr. Kellys Kapaku, Council Chairperson Layson Malyachila, Council Secretary Mr. Phinias Mt’onga, Respective Ward Councillors, Heads of Government Departments, Officers, the Media.
