Mr Robertson Sibanda, the head for Mucheni Primary visited Tonga.Online office on the 9th of October, 2008 and revealed that Mucheni Primary School Resource centre is now operational with one computer, 1 printer, a world space radio, and a Television. All these equipments are currently being solar powered simply because the centre has not been electrified. The centre has been running on one solar panel and one battery. However, due to the voltage required to run the computer, the panel could only run the gadgets for an hour says Mr Sibanda.

The school therefore approached Zimbabwe Decentralised Community Projects (ZDCP), the donor of the project for improved power supply at the Resource centre. ZDCP responded by supplying an extra battery and a solar panel in the meantime.

At the time of the visit, Mr Sibanda had not tested the efficiency and effectiveness of the added solar power installations. T.O. will visit the Resource centre on the 15th of October on their way to Siabuwa and Chunga to see the design of the solar. The Resource centre committee members were trained in basic computer skills at Binga High School ITC. The training was organised by ZDCP.

The main purpose of Mr sibanda's visit was to enquiry on how the community could access information through their computer. He was informed that the WLAN which is in the pipeline could solve the problem of access to information. Mr Sibanda was also urged to approach their donor for additional computers because one computer was not sufficiently to meet the needs of the community.
