Mrs Manela said in laison with the area Member of Parliament, His Royal Highness Chief Sikufele and the DEBS office it was deemed fit to build a secondary school in Kashinakaji area which she noted to be more populated and ideal for such a school immediately.
She stated that Kashinakaji has more qualified teachers, more populated and ideal for secondary school than Lwansongo which she said despite being centrally located, it has only one Dipoma holder teacher and a few certificate holders.
The District Commissioner however, informed the members that government is committed in bringing development to Lwansongo community with a Basic School being planned for.
