Mr. Makono will no longer migrate to town for computer studies

Mr. Mamoga is Ward Education Director (WED) Songambele ward and Mr. Makono is a Ward Education Director (WED) in Makawa ward. Both are attending computer studies in Songambele Maarifa Centre. As the Directors, they used to feel shame while attending WEDs’ meetings within and outside Kongwa district when they present their work manually.

Mr. Makono with a wife and seven children had a plan to run off his family from village and rent a house in town with the purpose of acquiring computer knowledge during his annual leave. Now Mr. Makono is happy because he is able to attend the computer periods at Songambele Maarifa centre and fulfill his family duties.
For complete understanding and frequent exercise, Mr. Makono decided to buy his own laptop as seen on the photo above.
