A few days after President Uhuru Kenyatta launched a project to make desks as a way to prepare for the opening of schools, Education CS Prof. George Magoha has assured Jua Kali artisans that they were the only ones who would benefit from the initiative and therefore they were to make applications and register over the same.
The registration was extended until Friday next week to allow room for more carpenters to apply.
In his address to the press, Magoha who had visited various garages in Kakamega found out that several schools were to benefit from the initiative.
“416 high schools in Kakamega county are going to benefit from this initiative. I will ensure that no corruption is included in this operation,” he said.
Magoha added that each county has a committee that will oversee the program to ensure that they give priority to schools which have various shortcomings.
“Each and every county has a committee which will ensure equal distribution of these resources. Schools that have lagged behind will be given the first priority,” He added.
Magoha urged the school administrators to ensure good hygiene in the schools as assign of prior preparations to opening of schools.
