Chadzamira Assists In The Construction of Schools In Masvingo
Masvingo West legislator Ezra Chadzamira who is also the Minister of State for Provincial Affairs in Masvingo has assisted in the transformation of a number of satellite schools in his constituency.
Chadzamira who was first elected into office in 2013, constructed modern classroom blocks at the schools, and drilled at least 25 solar-powered boreholes around the constituency, with the majority of these boreholes cited at the newly established schools.
The Midweek Watch toured wards 10, 11 and 12, and observed that satellite schools, Ruvhune Secondary, Gwengavi Primary, Chirichoga Primary and Mukonde Secondary Schools had been transformed.
Ruvhune Secondary school in ward 10 was a satellite school of Chirichonga and Mudavanhu high school which are some 18km away.
The school was established in 2016, three years after Chadzamira was voted into office, and now has an enrollment of 220 students, from form one to four.

An unnamed teacher who was manning the school who spoke to the Midweek Watch said pupils used to learn under trees and makeshift structures until Chadzamira intervened.
At Gwengavi Primary School, a borehole was drilled while construction of the school’s fourth block is already underway after authorities had turned one of the teachers’ cottages into a classroom.
The new classroom block is expected to be completed before the end of the school term in August.
The school head Dudzai Masunga said they hoped the legislator will chip in with an additional classroom block as well as set up a
perimeter fence to protect the school’s infrastructure.
Another school that was established is Chirichoga Primary School in ward 11. The Midweek Watch reports that the school was built from scratch and now has five classroom blocks. The school is also fenced and has a solar-powered borehole to serve the community and the pupils.
Chadzamira recently lost the ZANU PF provincial chairmanship to Robson Mavenyengwa, Zaka North Member of Parliament.
