School Principals in Kakamega County have lauded the county government for a steadfast development record in the sector for the last four and half years. The school heads who concluded a five day conference at Tom Mboya Labour College Kisumu today, expressed satisfaction with the way the government was handling education matters in the county. They lauded the improvement of infrastructure in selected schools, revamping of ECDE Centres and County polytechnics to modern standards as well as recruitment of teachers and instructors at both levels coupled with improvement of their remuneration.
Kakamega County Governor H.E Wycliffe Ambetsa Oparanya announced that the free county ECDE education is on course and his government will soon commence a pilot feeding programme for the young citizens in the ECDE centres. He added that plans to connect the centres to electricity through the rural electrification programme are at an advanced stage. The Governor said employment of polytechnic instructors on permanent and pensionable terms was a priority as the county government focuses on delivering accessible, affordable and quality education in line with Kenya Vision 2030.
Ikolomani Member of Parliament Hon. Benard Shinali, Education, Science and Technology CECM Mr. Joseph Indire and his Health Services counterpart Rachel Okumu were present.
