Kanyumba said the materials will enable a conducive learning and teaching environment for the betterment of education standards.
“I would like to warn the people that are involved in the distribution of such materials to ensure that they reach their destinations in the required amounts,” warned the minister.
Kanyumba said they will put mechanisms to monitor the distribution of the materials so that every school receives them.
