A group of concerned citizens from Masongola Ward in Zomba has petitioned the Anti-Corruption Bureau to investigate the reasons behind the delay in the construction of a classroom block at Ndangopuma Primary School in the area.
The group’s representative Edward Chingani has disclosed that children are forced to take their lessons under trees and that classes are usually suspended when it is raining.
“According to the plan, the classroom block was supposed to be completed by 2022. But until today, there is only a foundation that was constructed. So, we are asking the Bureau to investigate what caused the delays to complete the project,” he said.
Addressing the citizens, one of the investigators at ACB assured the concerned citizens that the Bureau will follow the matter.
