There was joy and jubilation at two schools in Shinyalu Constituency, Kakamega County when they received a new bus and commencement of construction of new classrooms.
Lugala Secondary School in Isukha Central Ward in the constituency received a new 52-seater bus while St. Clare’s Munasio Primary in Isukha West will have a new storey learning block.
Area MP Fred Ikana, who presided over the ceremonies, said the new bus purchased through the NG-CDF, would help Lugala, other local schools, and the general public.
He said the eight-classroom storey block being put up at Munasio would help the institution increase its capacity and boost academic performance.
The building that will cost an estimated Ksh. 20 Million is the latest with similar projects already underway at Shitochi Primary, Ivakale, and Mukulusu primary schools.
“Education tops my development priorities in Shinyalu and that is why I have embarked on deliberate efforts to address problems that have been afflicting our learning institutions for years.
I am committed to ensuring that all our schools are modernized,” said the MP.
He said he would purchase more buses and construct other modern learning buildings in all parts of the constituency.
Ikana said he also planned to put up a technical training college that would serve area residents and other parts of the country.
