Umasaini children’s long walk to education cut short

In the quest to build 15000 classrooms in the country by order of President Samia Suluhu Hassan, the move seem to be received with the great accolade by the people in different places across the country.

The residents of Umasaini suburbs at the outskirts of Pangani District in the Tanga region couldn’t hide their excitement for the classroom built for their satellite school under the government’s project.

Filled with pleasure, the Umasaini dwellers expressed their warm gratitude to President Samia Suluhu for the support she had given them on building modern classes.

Children at Umasaini suburb used to attend classes built with mud and thatches that sometimes used for religious prayers.

“We had gone through a lot before, our children used to walk to Ushongo for school, Ushongo is far and dangerous, with it’s road full of potholes.

We really thank President Samia, she feels our pain because she’s a mother like us, we believe a lot of good things are on the way”, Said Katarana Baraka, the Umasaini resident.

Pangani district has received TZS 560 million of the COVID – 19 protection and prevention fund programme for the construction of 28 classrooms.
