After 30 years of Namibia’s independence the school system has failed to provide educational infrastructure to the young learners of Cocoma Junior Primary School in order for them to make their dreams come true.
After learning of the situation at the school, Namibia daily News team were hard at work trying to find out why after all this years the School still do not have chairs and Tables.

Speaking to the Governor of Kavango East region, Hon. Bonifatius WaKudomo, he said he was not aware of the situation at the school, he therefore decided to consult with the director of education but unfortunately the Director was not reachable. He however informed us that the region has placed orders for chairs and tables as there are also some schools with the same problem, but he did not indicate if Cocoma Junior Primary School will also receive chairs and tables from the order the region has placed.
