She said Nkhata Bay used to be one of the districts that dominated in education performance in the country.

Chinthu said this over the weekend at Kalowa Primary School in the district during a meeting with her constituents.

She said: “We used to produce outstanding results from primary school to secondary school in the past, but what is happening now is worrisome since the results and other indicators are not impressive.”

Asked on the causes of the dwindling standards in education, the MP said there are multiple factors ranging from inadequate resources to learner attitude towards education.

Meanwhile, the MP has courted the Oller Gronhargen Foundation from Germany to help construct four school blocks in six schools and provide desks in the constituency.
