Acting President Joice Mujuru has urged Zimbabweans to safeguard public infrastructure by desisting from the retrogressive culture of vandalism which hampers growth.Officially opening a classroom block which was built by Innscor, in partnership with the community at Maguta Secondary School in Epworth, Cde Mujuru noted with concern the continued vandalism of public infrastructure.
She said vandalism and violence destroys the nation and the image of the country in the region and abroad hence the need for people to desist from such acts.
Cde Mujuru said education support by the local corporate sector is crucial in empowering children through a solid foundation built on a sound foundation.
She also challenged communities to take good care of children who lost their parents to the HIV and AIDS pandemic.
She said people should desist from sexually, physically and psychologically abusing orphaned children.
Acting President Mujuru said the education ministry should put in place an education curriculum that is practical so as to help the child today and in the future.
Innscor Chief Executive Officer, Mr. Tom Brown, said his organisation will continue to assist government in its endeavour to empower school children considering that education is the foundation and key to life.
The classroom block was built to the tune of US100 000 dollars.
The school has an enrolment of 589 children.
