De­velop schools in ru­ral ar­eas, Ahadi chief Ka­mau tells MPs and MCAs dur­ing anti-jig­ger cam­paign

The Star (Kenya) - - Counties -

MPs and MCAs have been urged to de­velop schools in ru­ral ar­eas.

Ahadi Kenyat Trust CEO Stan­ley Ka­mau said the na­tional gov­ern­ment’s ef­forts to pro­vide elec­tric­ity should be com­ple­mented.

“MCAs can build roofs,” he said. Ka­mau spoke in Teso south, Bu­sia county, on Satur­day dur­ing an anti-jig­ger cam­paign. He urged NGOs to stop ac­tivism and sup­port the na­tional and county gov­ern­ments.

Ka­mau spot­ted a par­tially naked child and pledged to sup­port his sec­ondary and univer­sity fees.

Teso South MP Mary Emaase said the child will be taken to Aterait Chil­dren’s Home. Ka­mau will send money for his up­keep ev­ery month.

He also crit­i­cised Ed­u­ca­tion CS Fred Ma­tiang’i’s strin­gent rules on schools. Ka­mau said it is not wrong to use school fa­cil­i­ties on the week­ends when the stu­dents are at home.

“Does it make sense to ban the use of such fa­cil­i­ties dur­ing the day or on week­ends when they are not there?” he said.

The anti-jig­ger cam­paign was spon­sored by the Mary Emaase Foun­da­tion and the of­fice of Bu­sia Gover­nor’s wife Judy Ojaa­mong.
