Nyamira Senator Okong’o Omogeni has faulted Education CS Ezekiel Machogu for neglecting upcoming schools in Nyamira County.
Citing Alliance High School which he said received Sh.100 million for infrastructure development from the Ministry, Omogeni faulted the government for concentrating on developing old and already developed schools instead of assisting the upcoming ones.
He instead lauded former education CS Fred Matiangi whom he said solicited funds from corporate bodies like the Safaricom Foundation and other none governmental organizations to fund schools in the country.
Stating that the government cannot satisfy all the financial needs of schools, he asked Machogu to reach out to institutions like the Oil producing companies that are ready to support education in the country.
The senator appealed to both National and County government leaders from Nyamira to set education as their main agenda in development.
The Senator who was addressing more than 100 students who will soon be joining the university from the county, Omogeni underscored the importance of quality education.
“When you have acquired quality education, which is achieved through hard work and determination, you can stand tall anywhere in the country.” He said.
Omogeni who is a professional lawyer asked the learners to undertake careers like law, medicine and accounts because they are highly competitive in the job market.
The senator promised that his office will support bright students from needy backgrounds to go through their university education.
‘We shall support the top-notch students to complete their courses and use them as education base setters from the region.” He said.
