The Prime Minister's order to all Selected 2016 STD Seven Students - "All selected std seven students must join form one come next year"The prime minister Hon. Kassim Majaliwa said the government will not tolerate to see hundreds of students who passed std seven examinations this year and selected to join Form One next year stay home due to lack of classrooms.
"The government will not sit-back and watch young people who passed their exams fail to join form one; every student who passed exams must go to secondary school. We have said that education is free there is no reason to make others not to go to school when the Government's aim is to provide free education" he said .
He has asked District Commissioners and District Executive Directors whose councils have students who have passed exams but does not have enough classes with desks to return to the table and regroup in order to ensure all students who succeed are absorbed together with their counterparts in the first selection.
