Nyandarua KESSHA, KEPSHA ask Govt to fix roads leading to schools


Nyandarua County KESSHA and KEPSHA Leadership have urged both the National and County Governments to improve roads that lead to schools.

Led by KESSHA Chairman Peter Maina and his KEPSHA counterpart Patrick Gichohi, they two said roads leading to educational institutions should be upgraded to make all schools easily accessible by all stakeholders who intend to visit them.

Maina said the current condition of the roads leading to the schools within the county was in deplorable condition making it difficult for visitors and education stakeholders to easily access the schools.

Mr Maina said accessibility will assist School heads to easily transport construction materials, foods and learning materials to schools and reduce transportation costs.

“The roads leading to schools are in bad conditions which increases the transport costs for both students, teachers, parents and any person who visits these institutions”, said Maina.

He also said poor roads also lead to regular school buses break-down making it very expensive for schools to maintain them.

On his part, Mr Gichohi urged stakeholders to continue supporting schools in order to improve the education level in the County.

Nyandarua County has 205 Secondary Schools,393 Junior Secondary Schools, and 464 Primary Schools.

The County has 10 Sub-Counties include; Kipipiri, Wanjohi, North Kinangop, South Kinangop, Nyandarua North, Aberdare, Nyandarua West, Gathanji, Mirangine and Nyandarua Central.
