Nalolo, March 17, ZANIS—The Office of the Vice President through the Disaster Management and Mitigation Unit (DMMU) has donated a banana boat to Maande Primary School in Nalolo district.
Handing over the boat to the school management, Nalolo District Commissioner Mundia Samwene said the boat comes after the school had appealed to the DMMU to assist the school as it has had no boat to transport school materials during the rainy season.
And Nalolo District Education Boards Secretary (DEBS) Mukata Muyangwa urged the school to guard the boat jealously as it was government property.
Mr. Muyangwa said stiff measures will be taken if the boat which is meant to help ease transport challenges will be used for personal gain.
And receiving the boat, School Head-teacher Kawengo Kawengo thanked the DMMU for the gesture, saying he will ensure that the boat is put to good use.
Maande Primary School is located in the west bank of Nalolo and is 25 kilometers from Muoyo Royal Village.
