The remark was made Monday during the inauguration ceremony of 31 new classrooms and 36 toilets constructed around different schools across the district.
Nyanza District Mayor, Erasme Ntazinda said that they expect all classrooms to have been completed by 2020 depending on how resources will be available. He said they will start from schools with most critical classrooms.
“In general, 251 classrooms need replacement and 220 need to be renovated. We plan to have them completed in three years. It will depend on availability of resources as Rwanda Education Board, the main partner will provide with us construction materials and people participate through community works,” he said.
Southern Province Governor, Marie Rose Mureshyankwano urged students, parents and teachers to better maintenance of classrooms and reminded parents on children’s rights to education.
“We thank parents’ role in constructing these classrooms we are inaugurating today, I urge you to protect them as they required us many efforts and resources during their construction,” she said.
