Meanwhile, The Pambashe Parliamentarian has pledged to donate K 20,000 to help the Kalulushi Municipal Council reconstruct Kawama Primary school that collapsed last year and refurbish a Clinic in Chambishi. “Investing in infrastructure development in the education sector is the most sustainable way of growing the economy, this government has placed great emphasis on the need to ensure quality infrastructure,†he stated.
