An education expert has bemoaned the country’s incapacity to support and implement projects which are of national importance.
The educationalist Steve Shara made the remarks following a communication from the Ministry of Education on the Secondary Education Expansion for Development (SEED) project made in Parliament.
Shara said that the pace at which the project is being implemented is slow and it is a shame to see the donor community contributing to projects that were supposed to be run by the country’s government.
“I don’t think we should be taking this much time and doing such type of projects in phases,” said Shara.
He further said that this shows the lack of capacity that the country has in implementing and carrying out such projects which is unfortunate.
Shara said: “There is something about our capacity as a country to do these things it just shows that we still need to build our capacity in terms of infrastructure projects.”
The SEED project was launched in 2019 and is expected to be completed in 2023.
The project intends to build about 250 school blocks for learners.
