Of the late, the national government through the docket of Education, Science and Technology has been on run in an attempt to ensure 100% transition of pupils to secondary schools has been achieved as was earlier ordered by the government late last year prior to the release of KCPE results.
However, Mwingi MP Hon. Charles Nguna has doubted the success of the policy over the registered low enrollment by the students to secondary schools.
Speaking during commissioning KSh 8M Luli river bridge in Nguutani Ward Migwani Sub-County, the area legislator casted his doubt over the transition plan claiming that such a move was only achievable with implementation of the absolutely free primary and secondary education to ease boost the literate levels through provision of basic and elementary skills to all citizens as enshrined in the constitution.
In support to his remarks, Nguna said that most parents in Kenya are living under poverty and hence it would be much difficult for them to enroll their children to designated secondary schools within their reach yet they can’t afford to put meal on their table.He further called on the national government to work towards achieving a total fulfilment of their pledged free primary and day secondary education countrywide.
The area residents lauded their MP for his vowed determination and commitment that saw KERRA construct Luli river bridge cutting across his constituency as it would ease transport and ferrying of goods by connecting commercial towns within Mwingi West as opposed to the earlier derailments experienced at the same point during the heavy rain seasons.
