Located at about 12 kilometres off the province’s capital, Ndalatando, IMA provides high school courses in the areas of Forests Resources, Vegetal Production and Animal production.   

The warning was given last Thursday to ANGOP, in Ndalatando, by the director of IMA, Luciana Garcia, who stressed that the state-owned infrastructure is really at an advanced and worrying state of degradation.  

She pointed out the lack of maintenance, coupled with inadequate use of the premises by the students, with highlight on the dormitories, as the main causes behind the level of degradation of the institution that was inaugurated in 2008.

Luciana Garcia reiterated the need for an urgent intervention on the infrastructure to take place soon, or at least improvements in its most critical sections, like the dormitories, toilets, drainage system and water supply.   

“If we had enough Money, we’d do the most urgent Works ourselves, but since there is no Money from the budget we need intervention from the superior instances”, she clarified.

She then expressed her confidence in a positive intervention from the local government and the Central Executive, considering the need for trained personnel in face of the present economic challenges.

“I appeal to the government to save the school, because it is a place where cadres are trained to help sustain the economic diversification programme of the province and the country”, she underlined.
