Minister of General Education Dennis Wanchinga says government is mobilising funds to complete a few classrooms in the fifty-three new schools that have not been completed.
Dr. Wanchinga says the ministry has resolved to identify a few classrooms in each school that can be completed, for the schools to be operational and to avoid vandalism.
He explains that government has spent colossal sums of money on the structures, and it would be unfortunate for them to remain white elephants, when the demand for education remains high.
Dr. Wanchinga was speaking in Livingstone, when he toured Shungu Day Secondary School in Airport Compound which was started in 2013.
And Southern Province Education Officer Florence Chikalekale said Livingstone, has high levels of enrollment which has put pressure on existing schools.
Mrs. Chikalekale said schools are now forced to have afternoon classes, a situation that compromises quality of education because teachers get tired with the many sessions.
