Lungu Upgrades Bweengwa Basic School, Where HH Was Educated

President Edgar Lungu has once again proved critics wrong by walking the talk when he promised to upgrade Bweengwa Basic School.

President Lungu has sent his Special Assistant for Projects and Implementation Lucky Mulusa to conduct on the spot check with Provincial administration on the needs for school upgrade.

Speaking when he toured the school this past Saturday afternoon, Mr. Mulusa told members of the press that Bweengwa basic school will be upgraded to a Secondary School.

The status of the school has attracted attention, as this was the institution which educated Hakainde Hichilema, the president of the opposition United Party for National Development (UPND), whose supporters had long claimed that Lungu would not fulfill his promise to upgrade the school.

Speaking with press, Mulusa said that President Lungu had promised to mobilise resources from the private sector and foreign investors because there was no budget allocation in the current budget.

Meanwhile, school head teacher Sage Soloko has thanked President Lungu for the gesture.

Mr. Soloko said currently the School enrolls 100 pupils per class because of lack of space.

Two weeks, ago President Lungu at a rally promised that he was going to send a team to assess the school needs.

Just after the rally several PF supporters were assaulted by UPND cadres. See pictures of the current status of the school in disrepair.
