A classroom block has been constructed at Butondo Primary School in Mufulira to meet the increasing number of enrolments for regular learning and for GCE, Kankoyo Member of Parliament (MP) Brian Mushimba has said
Dr Mushimba said the classroom block was one of the developmental projects he would hand over before parliament dissolves in readiness for the August 12 general elections.
He said he was grateful to Mopani Copper Mines (MCM) for contributing to the same project while others made his work easy as an MP through donations to various projects.
“As MP for Kankoyo, I will be handing over a 1 x 3 classroom block at Butondo Primary School which was constructed to meet the increasing enrolment which includes the GCE. I think this a good project because it is infrastructure aimed at promoting education.
“I think handing over the 1x 3 classroom block at Butondo primary school is befitting to end my five years term as MP especially that I have spent so much time and resources providing education and empowerment in Kankoyo constituency, “ Dr Mushimba said.
Dr Mushimba said infrastructure development was key to development in various sectors of the economy and so Zambians must support Government projects of infrastructure rehabilitation and development.
He said, with good government policies and positive work culture, infrastructure development could work as a catalyst to achieving economic recovery and national development.
“A good education infrastructure will help to support the development of the education sector and also create enough places for the ever-increasing population in the communities. So, people should not politicise the infrastructure development which the Government has rolled out.
“Another development is the road infrastructure which has seen damaged roads and new ones constructed. These roads have opened up new areas with agricultural potential, while others have gone to support the tourism sector,” he said.
