Khaya Moyo donates R3k to destroyed school
THE Minister of Policy Co-ordination and Promotion of Socio-Economic Ventures in the President’s Office, Cde Simon Khaya Moyo, has donated R3 000 towards repairs for Mangwe District’s Dukwe Primary School which was destroyed by a hailstorm early this month.
The school needs $4 300 to replace the roofing and $1 400 to replace textbooks. Mangwe District Administrator Mrs Felicity Gangada handed over the money to the school’s headmaster on behalf of Ambassador Moyo who is also Bulilima and Mangwe Senator on Friday last week. e school’s headmaster, Mr Khumbulani Ncube, said pupils were in desperate need of learning space since the rainy season had started. “We received R3 000 from Ambassador Moyo and we used the money to buy asbestos. We are grateful for this assistance as it is a starting point but there is still a lot that has to be done. “Grade 7 pupils have completed writing their exams which has helped ease congestion a little bit. “However, pupils are still crowded in classes while ECD pupils are learning outside. This isn’t a good set up considering that we are now in the rainy season,” he said adding that community members were also trying to mobilise resources towards repairing the school. Mr Ncube appealed to well-wishers to assist. Home Affairs Deputy Minister Cde Obedingwa Mguni recently donated 1 000 exercise books to the school and urged stakeholders to contribute towards rebuilding the school. He lamented the poor learning conditions which pupils at the school were now exposed to. About 10 homesteads and shops at Dukwe Business Centre in Madabe Centre were also destroyed by the hailstorm. Two villagers sustained injuries after they were struck by flying debris — @DubeMatutu.
