During his tour of some Education facilities in Maun this week, Molao visited the school to appreciate the progress and was impressed by the end product.

“It started around October last year and here we are, it is done and it is commendable to the contractor and consultants and everybody else who was engaged in the project, you have really worked under pressure to deliver,” Molao noted.

The impressive project was built by BOHUA (pty) Ltd a Chinese construction company based in the capital city Gaborone.

“Because the programme has begun, students are using alternative venues within the school so we need to start moving this side so the programme can be put to practice in earnest,” added molao.

In terms of the budget Molao added that, “It is slightly over short run but it has been done within budget, safe for a slight amount of below P200 000 additional cost, but these things do happen because sometimes changes which were initially not within the scope are made.”
