Wasu High School principal Saya Daniel said the MPs made commitments in all these establishments, which are primarily shared by the locals and Kabwum people, even though they were located inside the Tewai-Siassi district.
During Wasu High School’s 24th graduation ceremony, Mr Iguan committed K20,000 while Mr Dadae pledged K100,000 and a truck, while Mr Michaels promised a double-storey classroom, a tractor and extra funds for infrastructure maintenance.
On Sunday, they visited Etep Rural Hospital and officiated at Kalalo Primary School before proceeding onto Satop Primary School.
On top of a K150,000 pledge, Etep Rural Hospital was promised a morgue by Mr Michael.
Mr Dadae pledged K100,000 and a V-SaT telephone.

Mr Iguan committed K1,000 while Mr Tomala committed K5,000.
