Govt says Livimbo Primary and Secondary schools not sold
Government has refuted media reports which indicate that Livimbo Primary and secondary schools have been sold.

Head teacher of the school Rodie Chipalasa said the school is operating normally.
Vuwa Kaunda visited the school accompanied by PS of Education as well as PS lands Joseph Mwandidya.
The rumours has brought anger amongst citizens.
Just recently a group of Lilongwe Based Concerned Citizens have pen the minister of Lands and Urban Development to completely stop and withdraw from Livimbo Primary School otherwise next week Tuesday they are protesting and demonstrating in Area 2 against the tendency of encroaching and stealing land by Asians in the country.
The group is warning the police from getting involved because they are main culprits who work closely with the Asians.
They have also warned department of Lands officials at the regional office to stop the nonsense of stealing and selling peoples land.
But Kaunda said the reports are baseless.
Principal Secretary in the Ministry of Education Justin Said, said he was so surprised to hear about the rumours.
He said his ministry is build new schools not to sell the schools.
He said that is why Government intend to build 250 schools.
