Muhoroni Constituency Manager Sospeter Ngere has revealed that six secondary schools will benefit from buses courtesy of the NG-CDF in the coming weeks.

Ngere said that three buses will be bought for Prof Ayiecho Obumba Secondary in Ombeyi, Ngere Kagoro Secondary (Masongo Nyangoma) and Oginga Odinga Tamu Secondary (Chemelil Tamu) in 2022/2023.

Further, Ngere added that the CDF also planned to buy three buses for Olik Oliero Secondary, St Boniface Magare Secondary and Our Lady Queen of Peace Muhoroni Factory.

Ngere said schools in Muhoroni and markets have been connected to electricity.

“We are continuing with building of classrooms in various schools across the constituency,” he added.

Ngere appealed to school Principals in Muhoroni to focus on quality education.

“We want to transform Muhoroni into an education hub. The main objective of the area MP Onyango Koyoo is to produce professionals in various sectors,” he said.

Ngere said Koyoo was committed to ensure all those who qualify for professional courses at the end of four years will have their education fully sponsored.

In February last year, the MP disbursed KSh3.5 million to 61 students joining Form 1 in national schools.

The MP initiated the scheme in 2014. He said Muhoroni Constituency has produced a number of professionals.

Koyoo said at the time that his mission is to enable Muhoroni to produce top lawyers, doctors, engineers, and other professionals through the sponsorships he has initiated.

The MP said his office has been tracking the performance of the students under the programme. “The statistics in the CDF office indicate that most of the sponsored students have joined universities,” he said.

The bursary fund is disbursed in five categories; national schools, special-course universities, vulnerable students, colleges, universities and secondary schools.

He said university students will continue getting support. Koyoo asked the beneficiaries to work hard and be disciplined.
