The ministry of Primary and Secondary Education is encouraging schools to go digital and develop websites and other learning interactive platforms. Since the early 2000s the government has been giving out computers to schools, among them those in rural areas, but the majority of them went unused because there were no supporting facilities. In an interview, the ministry’s spokesperson Patrick Zumbo said they were encouraging schools to go digital and create websites. But some schools, while incoming the idea as noble, said they had no resources to support it. Zumbo said that the government was not forcing schools to establish websites but was simply encouraging them to do so.
