Kibaha. Many of 50 Viziwaziwa Primary School children who have been selected to join secondary education will not be able to complete their O Level studies, a councillor has warned.

That was said by Viziwaziwa councillor Mohamed Masoud during a meeting with Kibaha Urban MP Silyvestry Koka on December 12, 2018 to discuss challenges facing residents and find solutions.

He said Viziwaziwa students had to walk 15km to Miembe Saba Secondary School.

However, he said the residents had contributed Sh1.2 million and more would be raised to construct a secondary school at Viziwaziwa.

The residents asked the MP to support them to fulfill their goal.

Mr Koka promised to contribute Sh4 million and asked other stakeholders to do the same.

On compensation to residents whose land would be taken in the Kinyerezi-Chalinze power project, Mr Koka told them to be patient as the process was going on.

Meanwhile, Tanzania Electric Supply Company official Alexander Mosha called upon the residents to be patient as they would get power upon the completion of the second phase of the project.
