Total Malawi has donated equipment worth K15.1 million to some Primary Schools in the malawi’s capital city Lilongwe to help improve the safety of pupils when using roads.

FaceofMalawi speaking to the company’s manager Juventus Flao in an interview said the gift was made with recommendations from Road Traffic and Safety Services (RTSS).

“We had a budget in our corporate responsibility account, but we needed to identify an area of great need,” he said.

Beneficiary schools were identified on proximity to the roads and presence of established road safety clubs revealed Flao.

RTSS principle James Gumulira said reports of road accidents involving school pupils are on the rise, requiring massive civic education on road usage.

The department embarked on a campaign in which they go to primary schools to lecture pupils on the subject, said Gumulira.

“It is a campaign that has been going on for some time because we want to reduce incidents of road accidents involving pupils,” said the principle.

The beneficiary schools are Chiwoko, St Johns, Nchesi and Lilongwe CCAP.
FOM reporter speaking to Chiwoko Primary School head teacher John Chikumba said the gift is a boost to the schools’ road safety club.
