A laboratory equipment supplying company in Bulawayo has donated utensils to Mvuthu High School in Matabeleland South Province.

The donation which was made at a launch of a manufacturing company, Lab Equipment and Consumables (LEC) Biotech was presented to the Matabeleland South provincial education director Mr Lifias Masukume.

In an interview with ZBC News Mr Masukume expressed gratitude to the organisation for the donation and said the equipment will help in delivering proper science lessons to the students.

“Our learners now are actually going to do practicals other than theorising science because the equipments or the chemicals are now nearby. We thank LEC Biotech for what it has actually done this initiative is going to go a long way in creating scientists in the provinces,” he said.

The Director of LEC Biotech Sicelo Dube vowed to break the barrier that disadvantages students in rural areas to pursue careers in the science field.

“It was a special day to us as we gave back to the community, giving back to Mvuthu High School so as to make sure they run experiments for the students and teach science in a practical way. We hope that in the future we can be able to do more and more of these donations as they really need this,” he said.

The event was attended by representatives from institutions such as Cyrene Boys High and Bulawayo Polytechnic.
