Kathiani MP Robert Mbui has riled at schools in his constituency for their consistent poor performance in national examinations, especially in the KCSE.
Speaking at Kitie Secondary School, Mbui said although he has invested heavily in infrastructure in public schools, there is little to reflect that in the performance.
He implored schools to in the sub-county to try and elevate their performance by minimizing the number of Es and Ds, observing that they have the same resources as other schools which do well countrywide.
“The teachers here are trained the same as those in Alliance and other big schools; so I cannot say that the teachers are the problem. It is up to you students to pull up your socks for satisfactory results,” he said.
The lawmaker said that schools should reciprocate his efforts by posting good results, asking parents to encourage their children as this can only be achieved if every stakeholder played their part.
Nevertheless, the legislator said his commitment will not waver despite the bad results.
The school principal Charles Kinyanjui said the school fosters a positive learning environment and offers additional support for struggling students.
