Some teachers and secondary school students in Mahembe Sector, Nyamasheke District claims they do not know how to operate a computer due to the unavailability of electricity in the area.
Teachers claim the low knowledge of computer is the result of low number of computers in primary and secondary schools across the district.
“We don’t know whether Ministry is aware of this, we have only two schools with computer among nine in the district” one of the teacher exclusively told this website.
It is not even easy to access Karongi town where one can acquire skills related to computer for it very far from here. It requires 12,000 Frw to and fro” he adds
Teachers reveal they teach computer skills through theory which is a big challenge to the implementation of the targeted objectives.
Mahembe Sector teacher representative, Jean Claude Ndindayino said they are facing this challenge for implementation of one laptop per child progam in Mahembe was in vain due to lack of electricity in the sector.
Rwanda Energy Group Nyamasheke Branch Manager, Erneste Hagenimana has recently told Bwiza.com there is a plan to provide electricity to about 2000 household including these schools.
