It could be recalled that government in 2007 sent Mr. George Ndopo in a rescue mission. The mission is to make sure that the Howard Memorial Secondary School is put in its right shape. The school before his appointment does not have any structured administration and have not been partaking in public examinations.
History has recorded so many untold stories including lost of lives of many children who moved from Shenge town during the rains in order to take public examinations.
