This follows the stoppage of work by over 70 casual workers last week demanding for an increment of daily wage of K10, 000.
District Commissioner Mr Sianduka, who also confirmed the resumption of work by the workers on Monday this week, said it was important for workers to understand that the school was a one of the major developmental projects government has embarked on in the District which they have to embrace as it was for their benefit.
In an interview in his office today, Mr Siadunka emphasized government’s commitment to the completion of the school projects which was going to gobble about K32 billion once completed and urged the workers to contribute to the fruition of the project.
He said some workers who downed tool last week have been dismissed after they were screened and some new workers recruited.
“Government is in a hurry to achieve the Millennium Development Goals by 2015 in the provision of quality education for all and so it is for this reason that we all have to help government in realizing this goal,” Mr Siandunka said.
