Zomba, July 24, 2019: Minister of Education Science and Technology Dr. William Susuwele Banda said government is in the process of bridging the gap between conventional secondary schools and community day secondary schools in terms of availability of resources.

The Minister was speaking at St Bridget Community Day Secondary School ground on Sunday during a political rally where he said the differences were affecting performance of students especially those in CDSSs.

“The Ministry is trying to level the playing field by making sure that community day secondary schools have basic requirements,” he said.

Dr Susuwele said as of now teachers have accepted to teach at any secondary school despite qualification one has.

“Before we had teachers who never wanted to teach at CDSSs thinking those schools were for diploma holders only,” he said.

He was however, quick to say what was remaining was to equalize resources that are available at CDSSs to equate with those found at conventional secondary schools.

Democratic Progressive Party Regional governor for eastern region, Julius Paipi urged people in the region to put political differences aside and focus on developing the region.

He then expressed gratitude to people from Zomba Lisanjala for electing Dr. Susuwele as their Member of Parliament.
