    Construction of Chebvumbi Secondary starts


    - The construction of Chebvumbi Secondary school whose groundbreaking ceremony was done in October last year is now in progress.
    The school which is being built in ward 25 under headman Madzivire in Chivi community is expected to be opened in January 2017.
    This was confirmed by ward 25 councilor Zivai Tinago in a telephone interview with The Mirror on Monday. Tinago said the site pegging and the digging of the first block was done and the laying of foundation is in progress.
    "The construction of Chebvumbi Secondary school started recently with site pegging by the Ministry of Primary and Secondary Schools.
    "We will start by building one classroom block, one staff house and toilets. As I speak right now, the digging of the first block is done and construction of the  foundation is about to start," said Tinago.
    Asked why it took so long to start the construction of the school when all the material needed was provided for during the groundbreaking ceremony in October Tinago said they were waiting for the ministry to come for pegging.
    "We were given the material for the construction of the  first four classroom blocks a long time ago by our Council Chairman Dr Killer Zivhu, but we were still waiting for the ministry of  Primary and Secondary Education to do the site pegging. Everything is now going according to the plan and the builders are coming from our community," said Tinago.
    This school comes as a great relief to parents and children of Chivi who were travelling 15-17 kilometres to and from school.
     A number of pupils have also perished in accidents as they cross the busy Masvingo – Beitbridge Highway to the nearest school.
    Other pupils have also drowned as they tried to cross the crocodile infested Lundi River.education news
