THE Mendi Munihu district development authority is ready to pay out the third batch of school-fee subsidies for its tertiary students.
After paying the first and second batches of fees, the DDA has announced that it was preparing to pay the third batch.
Chief executive Pora Nema said local MP and Works Minister Michael Nali was concerned about the students and their future.
“The Minister’s plan to pay fees for the tertiary students has given hope to many rural farmers who had more than three children attending secondary and tertiary institutions,” Nema said.
“Free education is the government’s policy and the DDA is working alongside the government to make sure the students’ fees are subsidised without putting much pressure on the poor parents,” he said.
Nema said the district needed money to improve facilities, but the students were also important.
