    THERE are many Zanzibaris who are illiterare, it was revealed here on Saturday.

    The Zanzibar Minister for Education and Vocational Training, Mr Haroun Ali Suleiman, said here on Saturday that despite heavy investment in the education sector over the last ten years, many people cannot read, write and count.

    ''We have been doing well in education for the past ten years of President Amani Abeid Karume, but we are still battling illiteracy on the islands,'' Mr Suleiman, who is among 11 presidential aspirants under the CCM ticket said.

    The minister said this when moving his ministry's 2010/2011 budget proposals in the Zanzibar House of Representatives, where he asked it to approve 47bn/- expenditure.

    He said last year, 6,980 people attended adult education classes, where the majority (6,053) were females.

    The minister said the government was now encouraging many people to join adult education classes, but absenteeism and migration undermined the effort.

    He said further that the government has drawn strategies to educate more people with disability and women.

    He said the curricula for special groups included studies in entrepreneurship and management.

    He said 421 students with disabilities were involved in inclusive education last year and urged parents to register their disabled children for the classes.

    Mr Suleiman said that his ministry in collaboration with development partners such as the Arab Bank for Economic Development in Africa (BADEA) and Ras-Al- Khaimah Gas (TZ) Limited has been developing higher education by improving the State University of Zanzibar (SUZA).

    ''Some students leave Zanzibar for training in oil and natural gas exploration. Oman and Iran have also promised to offer training opportunities for our students,'' he said.

    Kule Zanzibar hakuna chochote cha maana kinachoendeleakatika kuinua hali za wananchi, bali ni kuimba 'Mapindfuzi daima' na CCM kung'ang'ania madaraka tu -- miaka nenda, miaka rudi. Utawaona wanaume wazima wanajifunga misuri ya kanga za wake zao!

    Huyo waziri ni muongo, zaidi ya nusu ya investment anayosema iliingizwa katika sekta ya elimu ilitafunwa na wakubwa wa hilo wanaloliita Baraza la Mapinduzi!

    Afadhali umetoa mchango wa KISTAARABU na usio wa kukatisha tamaa
    Yes they are trying harder, na nadhani hawatokatishwa tamaa na baadhi ya watu kama hao waliotoa maoni yao hapo juu
