Butembo-Beni, 05 August, 2023 / 9:25 pm (ACI Africa).
Bishop Melchisedec Sikuli Paluku of the Catholic Diocese of Butembo-Beni in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) has called on the government to make free access to basic education a reality.
In his closing remarks during a training workshop for head teachers in Butembo, Bishop Paluku lauded the courage of the Congolese government in implementing the project to provide access to free basic education.
However, the Congolese Catholic Bishop thinks the government needs to do more to allow free access to basic education in all areas.
“Make free education a reality, not just something planned at ministry level,” Bishop Paluku said Monday, July 31.
“The government will have to put all the means at its disposal to take care of education,” he said, and added, “I hope that the government will go further to ensure that free education covers all sectors of basic education.”
