(+) EDUCATION STANDARDS DECLINE IN TAVETA
Marauding elephants in Taita Taveta county have been blamed for the declining education standards in the region. “Children report to school late and leave early. The marauding elephants in the school compounds distract the students’ and they cannot concentrate on their studies,” Mwatate MP Andrew Mwadime said yesterday. “How can our children compete with their counterparts from other regions?” Mwadime invited the Environment Committee to visit the region.
