Science and Technology Minister FELIX MUTATI has advised parents to take advantage of the free education that Government has provided as a way of reducing child marriages.

Mr MUTATI says child marriages have continued to affect the girl child welfare, because most parents were NOT able to pay their schools fees.

The Minister was speaking when he made a personal donation of various items to Namucho Kids Service at Chondela Primary school in Katuba ward in Katuba Constituency in Lusaka today.

Mr MUTATI was pleased to learn that the organization was looking after an old woman aged 101 years SARAH BUBALA and the youngest orphan aged one year.

He explained that Government has come up with various developmental programmes aimed at improving the living standards of people in communities across the country.

The Minister gave an example of Constituency Development Find -CDF which he said is now decentralized and at community level.

Meanwhile, Namucho Kids Service Executive Director FELIX CHISOLA has welcomed the donation of items to the less privileged saying the service takes care of the old people, orphans, Widows and the physically challenged.

Mr CHISOLA during the event, appealed to Government to consider expanding Chondela School to enable more children access education.
