Minister July Moyo officially opens Rujeko Secondary School
Local Government and Public Works Minister, Hon July Moyo officially opened Council owned Rujeko Secondary School on the 25th of February 2022.
The secondary school is not only the first in the history of Masvingo City Council but most local authorities in the country.
Minister July Moyo applauded Masvingo City Council for raising the bar high and setting the pace for other local authorities.
“ I am very appreciative for such an initiative taken by Masvingo City Council. Not all local authorities have built secondary schools as most focus on constructing primary schools.
This noble idea is in sync with the government’s National Development Strategy 1 and vision 2030 wherein amongst some of its key priority areas, social services provision is key. As you might be aware, vision 2030 fulfills some of the sustainable development goals and this project is direct confirmation of Council’s efforts to achieve sustainable development goal no. 4, which is quality education”, he said.
The new school opened its doors this month on the 14th of February 2022 with an initial enrolment of 220 form one pupils. The first 2 blocks of the school and ablution facilities were constructed at a cost of ZWL 18 million.
Hon July Moyo was accompanied by the Minister of State for Provincial Affairs and Devolution, Hon Ezra Chadzamira, officials from the Ministry of Local Government and Public Works, His Worship, the Mayor. Cllr Collen Maboke, Deputy Mayor, Cllr Wellington Mawende, Alderman Maridza, Councillors, Town Clerk, JOC Members, provincial Heads of Government Ministries and Council Management.
