The UAE occupation has changed the name of the Kuwaiti Educational Complex on Socotra Island, which hosts more than 1,000 students, local sources said on Monday.
According to the local sources, UAE company Dexam Power has set a conditions for the return of electrical power to the complex, demanding the name clbe changed into “Zayed Educational Complex”. In all likelihood, this is meant as a tribute to Zayed al-Nahyan, the founder of the United Arab Emirates.
The sources explained that the conditions of the UAE company have provoked widespread discontent among the residents, who refused to change the name of the Kuwaiti Educational Complex. The institution is the largest educational edifice on the island.
The Kuwaiti Educational Complex in Socotra was built at the expense of a philanthropist from the State of Kuwait through the Kuwaiti Woman’s Charity Team and the implementation of the Humanitarian Action Response Foundation.
