FOOD SHORTAGES PLAGUE PRIMARY SCHOOLS ACROSS THE COUNTRY






Article By: Rorisang Mogojwe


Primary schools across Botswana are grappling with severe food shortages.

Assistant Minister of Local Government, Mabuse Pule, confirmed the challenges, responding to concerns voiced by MP for Thamaga-Kumakwane Palelo Motaosane. Motaosane raised alarm about the lack of school feeding programs, stationery shortages, and the burden placed on parents who are expected to purchase furniture and books.


The legislator expressed concerns about the potential decline in learning outcomes due to these ongoing issues, arguing that the shortage of resources will jeopardise students' well-being and potentially impact their academic performance. Pule acknowledged the widespread problems plaguing the school feeding program, attributing them to delayed tenders, inadequate management by local officials, and poor-quality supplies.


He offered assurances of improvement by April, citing the establishment of a task force to address supply chain challenges.
