Construction of Rujeko Secondary School gathers momentum
2021 will go down in the annals of City of Masvingo as a historic year, as it is the year that the decision to construct a secondary school in the high density suburb of Rujeko was made followed by commencement of construction of the long awaited School.
Council’s move to embark on the secondary school construction project came as a noble project that was long overdue. The project is first of its kind in the history of local authorities.
Despite inclement economic conditions that have characterized the country and councils not being spared, the City of Masvingo has managed to commence construction of the first classroom block at a budgeted cost of ZWL 5,4 million.
Construction of Rujeko Secondary School is expected to go a long way in bridging a yawning infrastructure gap that was occasioned by the absence of a secondary school in the high density suburb of Rujeko. Currently, the government owned secondary schools in Mucheke; Ndarama and Mucheke High Schools are catering for pupils in Rujeko high density suburb which is the inspiration behind the construction of the secondary school with an envisaged capacity of 600 pupils.
