Primary and Secondary Education Minister Cain Mathema said every Zimbabwean school should become a Special Economic Zone.
Mathema said this on Friday while addressing district schools’ managers from the northern part of the country who were undergoing week-long training on modern ways of managing schools, at Ilangeni Training Centre in Bulawayo. He said:
My wish would be to see each school engaging in commercial farming, commercial manufacturing. So, let us lead them, let us assist them and work with them. Each school must be a Special Economic Zone.
Mathema revealed that he has asked all schools to provide a report on the size of land they occupy.
He added that Bulawayo City Council is considering allocating Mpopoma High School a piece of land for commercial purposes as the school does not have adequate space on its premises.
