The Mwansabombwe lawmaker also handed over a one by three classroom block at Mwata Chinkonkole primary school constructed at a total cost of 380,000 kwacha.
He said such projects are an indication that government cares about the welfare of the people in Mwansabombwe district
And Mr. Kabaso said the establishment of a new school at Mwata Chinkonkole primary school will help reduce on the distances which learners used to cover to access education services.
And speaking at the same occasion, District Education Board Secretary Mary Kanyimbo said education for all is no longer a dream but becoming a reality.
Dr. Kanyimbo said infrastructure is a prerequisite to quality education and has since thanked government for using part of the CDF to construct the classroom blocks at the three learning institutions.
