The government will continue supporting the provision of quality education in the country, President William Ruto has said.

The president who graced the interdenominational event at Nyanturago stadium in Kisii County on Sunday revealed that his government will employ 56,000 teachers between August and January next year.

“These will ease both the teaching load in both Secondary and primary schools in the country.” He said.

The president also promised to rekindle  the construction of Rigena Medical Training College which had stalled for a long time to its completion.

Other projects that he commissioned included the Keumbu water project which he said will cost Sh 300 million to be completed.

The project will alleviate the water shortage in the learning institutions like Nyanturago, Irondia, Amasago, Kiru and markets like Nyanturago, Nyabisabo and Kiamokama.

The President recommended the renovation and elevation of Nyanturago Stadium to modern National standards to host both Schools and other public games and sports as part of nurturing talent among the youth.

Ruto also said his government will provide Sh 256 billion to complete the ongoing road projects to enable farmers take their farm produce to the markets.

He promised his government will provide funds to put up Agriculture industrial park in the area for the value addition of their farm produce and the creation of job opportunities.

The president, who was received by elected leaders and former leaders from Kisii and Nyamira Counties led by Governor Simba Arati, thanked the Community for embracing peace.

Kisii Governor Simba Arati asked Education Cabinet Secretary Ezekiel Machogu, his predecessor James Ongwae and Professor John Akama to form a team that will champion the development agenda for the county instead of dwelling on unfounded disagreements that derail progress.

Kisii and Nyamira County Women Representatives Doris Aburi and Jerusah Momanyi reiterated their support for the girl Child education by discouraging Female Genital Mutilation.

Mrs Aburi introduced 47 girls who graduated from the alternative rites of passage programmes hosted at Nduru Girls’School during this holiday.
