    MASVINGO- The government has allocated 1 hectare for the construction of the Better Schools Programme of Zimbabwe (BSPZ) provincial headquarters in Masvingo.
    The piece of land which is situated at the Telone exchange was given to the BSPZ in February this year.
     It is planned that the Ministry of Primary and Secondary Education provincial headquarters which is currently housed at the Mines Industry Pension Fund-owned Wigley House will move to the BSPZ building once it is completed.
    Several sub-committees have been set up and they include the procurement, marketing, finance, technical and management.
    The committees shall mobilise funds from industry, mining business and approach such Government arms as the Zimbabwe National Army for the drawing of plans for a building that will be multi-storey. This was agreed upon at a meeting held last Tuesday.
    There was also a decision at the meeting to approach the late Minister of State for Masvingo, Ben Shuvai Mahofa so that she could spearhead the fundraising project.
    The fundraising committee comprises of deputy provincial director (secondary and non-formal education), Andrew Chikwange;  Masvingo District Schools Inspector, Ishmael Chigaba, Philip Muzenda, prominent Gutu businessman, Isaiah Ngwaru, The Mirror, Mwenezi head and NASH provincial chairman Cuthbert Chuma; Mwenezi District Schools Inspector Luckson Zanamwe, Gutu acting District Schools' Inspector Sonnie Chirikure, Rudhanda Peter Joe and  Department of Planning Gutu Rural District, Tapiwa Mutema. The Mirror was co-opted on the media and marketing side.
    "As a subcommittee our main task is to raise funds for the construction of this national project. We need to set targets and approach well-wishers for whatever support," said Zaka acting District Schools Inspector Beniar Shambambeva after the meeting last week.
    The meeting resolved to approach booksellers, hardware shops, mining companies, conservancies, financial institutions, construction companies and prominent citizens for funding.
    Masvingo Province has a total enrolment of 586 605 pupils and of those 138 057 are doing secondary education with the remainder in primary.
