Public utility company Mozambique Electricity (EDM) has stopped supplying electricity to 15 secondary schools in the central province of Manica because of unpaid bills, putting at risk the correction of this year’s final exams.
“In fact, we are embarrassed. We hope that the problem will be solved soon, because secondary education examinations start next Monday,” the local press quotes Deputy Provincial Director of Education and Human Development in Manica, Maria de Lurdes Brige, as saying.
Maria dee Lurdes Brige said the blackout would prevent the functioning of computer equipment used during the marking of the exams.
Manica Governor Manuel Alberto accused the schools of mismanagement, which had resulted in a debt of 40 million meticais (EUR 571,000).
Manuel Alberto said that the provincial authorities had promised the state electricity company that the debt would be settled by March 2019, and urged them to restore electricity supply in the meantime.Source: Lusa
