Zimbabwe & Belgian Bank to Build 166 Schools

By Lovemore Meya

Government, through the Ministry of Primary and Secondary Education, has struck a deal with a Belgian bank through which the latter will help build 166 schools under a programme aimed at addressing the shortage of schools in the country.

Primary and Secondary Education Minister Dr Lazarus Dokora said this yesterday while addressing residents at Grace Primary School in Hatcliffe Extension, who are currently complaining that their community only has two primary and secondary schools viewed as inadequate to cater for the ballooning population.

"On August 11, I signed a document with a Government bank, IDBZ, which also engaged a Belgian bank to help us build schools under a joint venture exercise," said Dr Dokora.
