Speaking at the signing ceremony of the $6.5 million EU Education Transitional Fund, phase 2, Coltart said the priorities were shameful.
Despite the fact that the education sector had registered positive growth due to sustained assistance, mostly from western countries, it was still fragile, he said.
“Education remains in a state of crisis.” The minister said government spent only $5 per child per year on education – and only received $16 million from treasury against a budget allocation of $60 million.
Last year Mugabe alone spent $20.6 million on foreign travel. The EU ambassador to Zimbabwe, Aldo Dell’Ariccia said the European bloc would never let Zimbabwe down.Post published in: Education
