Govt donates 100 computers to Katine TTI

Matungulu MP Stephen Mule speaks to 2024 bursary beneficiaries in Tala. By Gastone Valusi.

Katine Technical Training Institute (TTI) in Matungulu constituency has received 100 computers from the national government in a move aimed at upgrading the institution.

Area MP Stephen Mule disclosed that a further Ksh10 million from the NG-CDF kitty will be used to build classrooms for students taking electrical courses. The construction of the classrooms and the administration block had already started but stalled over insufficient funding.

“I want to thank the government of the day for making sure that we start our computer classes. They gave us 100 computers which have been installed in two computer labs,” he said.

He was speaking on Sunday at the area NG-CDF offices as he disbursed this year’s bursary for secondary schools.

Mule said that the institution was earmarked to be a center of excellence in technical training and urged youth from the region to take advantage of the facility which offers artisan, certificate and diploma courses in several disciplines including technical, business and hospitality.

Speaking at the same function, Sub County Director of Education (SCDE) Rose Musembi asked Form 4 leavers who did not qualify for University admission to join local TVET colleges to gain technical skills.

Musembi said that the country’s future lies in an educated population and the current job market requires youth with technical and unique skills.

“I am asking all students who did not make it to universities to pursue TVET courses to attain practical skills that will help them find new avenues of work through formal and informal employment,” she said.
