The drive for learners to improve their information communication technology (ICT) skills in Sakubva has received a boost following a donation of laptops to schools in the area.

The donation was facilitated by Zanu PF Mutare Central candidate, Dr Nancy Saungweme, who noted that in today’s world, ICTs play an integral role in the learning process.

“We are in a modern world where computers play a critical role in the way that knowledge is imparted in learners. We want to have a situation where learners in the country are able to access computers from an early age,” she said.

The recent opening of the Sakubva Information Centre is one of the ways the government has put in place to ease access to information, particularly on the internet to accomplish the goal of being a knowledge based society.
