In an interview with The Herald, Nyamuroro Primary School headmistress Mrs Emah Kupfuwa said property worth over $90 000 destroyed by a hailstorm which tore the roof of a classroom block last Friday.
Said Mrs Kupfuwa:
A strong wind came and blew off a classroom block. The whole roof was blown away, textbooks and exercise books were also destroyed by the showers that accompanied the strong wind. The books got wet and are no longer usable. We are now conducting our lessons under a tree, while other classes share with those that were not affected. Lessons are being conducted with no books or chalks because all that was destroyed. The estimated cost of the damage is about $90 000 and we are appealing to well-wishers to assist us because the situation is bad. Six classes have been affected and given the coming of the rain season, it is a cause for concern,
Gokwe Nembudziya Member of Parliament Justice Mayor Wadyajena pledged 5 000 exercise books to the school and appealed for assistance.
