Solar electricity for schools in Tonota North

The assistant Minister of Local Government and Rural Development, Botlhogile Tshireletso, said solar electricity will be installed in two schools in the Tonota North constituency.

Tshireletso was responding to a question from the area MP Fidelis Molao, who wanted to know why there was a delay in connecting electricity in all the primary schools in the constituency.Molao said the minister promised to do so in the 2013/2014 financial year. He further asked if the connections would be completed in the 2014/2015 financial year. Tshireletso said out of the 12 schools in the constituency, her ministry has successfully fully electrified half of the schools; three are partially electrified while the remaining three are not.

“Of the three that are not electrified, one school which is Jamataka Primary School is not on the electricity grid.  There have been delays in connecting electricity to the two other schools due to a delay in finalising the adjudication of the tender. Those primary schools are Makobo and Matsitama,” she said.
