“The remaining schools will wait for the next phase,” he noted.

School equipment production unit was represented by Allan Weche who noted that it is the Government duty to empower schools in order to implement CBC.

He also said that teachers will undergo a short training on how to effectively use the equipment.

At the same time Kenya Primary School Heads Association Chairperson Patrick Musinai lauded the Government for the noble progress of providing equipment.

However, he expressed his fears that some schools have pathetic infrastructure and security of the equipment is at risk.
