“My questions are: Are the students to be tasked to build the block that was burnt down? Is the government not responsible for it? Is the payment directed by the state for the students to pay? When has it become the duty of the principle to build a government owned school?

“Should they hold the student responsible for the restructuring of the building? I want this to be investigated and the said principal should be called to explain what's going on. I have a younger sister there in the school and she has in fact paid her dues of the 1500.”
