Paramount Chief Kyungu of Karonga and Chitipa districts has appealed for more investment in the education sector for the two districts.
Speaking during the official launch of Ramnent International Academy in Karonga district, Kyungu said education plays a very important role in development.
“Let the people come and invest in primary, secondary and tertiary education by building more schools since education is the backbone of development for the nation.
“We also need investment in Agriculture. There should be an agriculture secondary school where students should be trained on various agricultural skills before being selected to upgrade at LUANAR,” he said.
He requested fellow local chiefs to avoid resisting selling out land to investors who plan to do social economic activity in the area.
Director for Ramnent International Academy, Rodrick Mhango expressed gratitude to the community members and the district council for their support towards his initiative of constructing the academy.
“I’m so grateful for the support the Karonga District Council and community members offered towards the construction of the academy. We are set to provide good services for the benefit of the district and the country,” he said.
District Commissioner Rodrick Mateauma pledged continued support towards promotion of education services that align with government standards.
