THE principal came to Mayuni Senior Secondary School in 2009 as a departmental head, as an HoD and I don’t see the reason why he cannot submit the financial reports, because he initially got transferred to Kandunda Kaseta School in western Caprivi at the end of 2010 as the principal where he just served for a few months.
Before he finished his probation he was transferred back to the same school (Mayuni) as a principal.
The three months’ difference should not be used as an excuse not to submit the school’s financial report.
Since October and November is the time to submit the financial report why should it take long if he knows everything his office has been working on, and this school is not new to him? To me it seems he was on holiday.
Does this mean the financial report will only be made available to parents in 2013, since procedurally it first has to go through the inspectors of education?
About the logo on the school’s letterhead – something that is regarded as a “sample” or proposal cannot be used for official correspondence, because it has not yet been approved by the school board and the Mayuni community.
Can the principal provide clarification as to who had requested the funds from the Itenge Development Trust (IDF)?
After the community asked for funds, the Trust further searched for assistance and they got N$50 000 from the Ministry of Education.
Now does the Itenge Development Trust Fund have the mandate to request funds on behalf of our community from the Ministry of Education?
From 2009 when he was transferred to Mayuni Senior Secondary School to the time he was appointed the acting principal at Kandunda Kaseta in Western Caprivi, until 2011 to 2012, when he came back to the same school nobody had spoken to him about tribalism, but his actions, to me, clearly show he is the one practising tribalism judging by the things he is doing without the knowledge of other people.
Concerning the name of the former director of education and that of a predecessor who is Mbalangwe, which were erased because they were not from the area does not mean the erasing has got to do with tribalism.
Secondly, consultations should be held with the people if you want to develop them as we do also have our own heroes who saw the establishment of the Mayuni Senior Secondary School, such as the late Wilson Sinalumbu Siambiso, Fred Bede who died in exile, Roux Mayuni, Charles Sehani, Joshua Libuto, Mbengela Boha, and former member of the NDF, late Mr Desmon Sikabelezi, Afred Alifeli Kapalingo and many more.
To see and talk about wrong things does not mean that one is educated or uneducated.
