Relief as NGCDF repairs school roof blown off by winds in March

Sikinga Primary School in Nambale is being repaired by the Nambale NGCDF as second term begins today. The roof was blown off by strong winds in March.

The Nambale NGCDF has started repairing eight classrooms of a school whose roofs were blown off by strong winds in March this year.

The work started shortly after area MP Geoffrey Mulanya visited Sikinga Primary School one month after the incident, and after parents raised concerns over the delay in repairing the classrooms before schools reopen.

Parents, led by the chairman of the Board of Management (BoM) Dennis Nicholas Makhanu and his PTA (Parents and Teachers Association) counterpart Hentrix Mulianga, had complained over the delay, noting that their pupils would lack a place to study once second term kicks off.

“We were worried because since the classrooms were destroyed in late March, nothing has been done. Our children cannot learn under trees with these heavy rains we are experiencing. Now we are relieved that the classrooms are being worked on,” Makhanu said.

They however observed that some of the classrooms have cracks on the walls, thus posing a grave danger to learners even if the roof is repaired.

“Some of the classrooms have cracks and it is our wish that they be pulled down and new ones constructed,” he added.
