Asians to construct classroom structures

The Swaminarayan Indian community in Kampala, has taken over the renovation of the Nakivubo Blue Primary School currently being run by government under Kampala Capital City Authority.
The renovation of the 60-year-old school follows its dilapidated state where the school with more than 1,000 pupils studying under universal primary education, is facing structural challenges like inhabitable classroom blocks, poor staff quarters, lack of running water, electricity and poor drainage.
Although currently under Kampala Capital City Authority, the school lacks habitable classrooms because most of the buildings are made out of wood and the school compound is characterised by poor sanitation and noise from the neighbouring Owino market.
Mr Eriya Lwanga Kizza, the head teacher, said government constructed the school in 1953.
