Moblissa community gifted $5M school bus

first_imgFulfilling a promise made to residents of Moblissa, on the Linden-Soesdyke Highway, Indigenous People’s Affairs Minister Sydney Allicock on Sunday handed over a minibus valued at some $5 million to shuttle schoolchildren to and from school.The vehicle will serve a total of 47 school-aged children attending school in Linden and neighbouring communities.Speaking to residents before officially handing over the vehicle to the Community Development Council (CDC), Minister Allicock warned against division among residents especially with the new minibus being in place.“The bus will be a relief for taking your children to school and ensuring that they have a good education. We are also hoping that you will be able to manage the affairs of the bus and your managers will not set up a scheme of fighting against one another, but fighting for betterment,” he told the residents who gathered in the community’s health centre.The Minister charged the residents to take full responsibility of the new vehicle, especially in its maintenance.“For too long we have seen buses, tractors and expensive machines in communities just bracing in the corner for the need of two screws or batteries… it is about management, it is taxpayer’s money. I hope we can meet one another halfway,” he said.The residents expressed their appreciation and were vocal in their commitment to keeping the vehicle in perfect order.last_img read more
