Ones’ future not banked on background – Muzila

FRANCISTOWN: The mayor of Francistown Sylvia Muzila has heaped praises on students who performed well during their primary school leaving examinations last year.

Speaking at an awards ceremony organised by the Francistown City Council (FCC) in honour of the students, Muzila said that during her primary school days they used to go to school barefooted but they strived very hard to succeed in their education.

“Your background should not limit you to succeed in your studies. You come from different backgrounds but do not despair but study hard in order to have a bright future. Do away from negative things but concentrate on your education. We want you to become engineers, doctors and other professions that add value to the economy of this country,” said an elated Muzila.
