President Uhuru Kenyatta has returned with goodies centered towards empowerment of the education sector amidst the highly guarded ongoing National examinations in Kenya.
He has assured students across the country especially those sitting for the ongoing national examinations of the government’s commitment to facilitate them to realize their full potential.
Uhuru spoke today when he donated buses to Thika School for the Visually Impaired, Archbishop Eliud Wabukala ACK Malakisi High and Nyiro Girls’ Secondary. The Head of State emphasized that the government will not dither in its efforts to support students to achieve their dreams.
He said the government serves all parts of the country equally in terms of development and challenged the students to work hard in their studies and uphold values of integrity, honesty and discipline.
Besides the buses, the President presented each of the three schools with 100 indigenous tree seedlings suitable for their localities as part of the ongoing sustained national campaign to increase forest cover.
He said the government serves all parts of the country equally in terms of development as he challenged the students to work hard in their studies and uphold values of integrity, honesty and discipline.
“I want you to love yourself, work hard and be disciplined so that you can be what you desire,” the President told the students from the three schools.
President Kenyatta at the same time wished all candidates success in the ongoing national examinations and cautioned against cheating, saying his administration will ensure the policy of 100 percent transition to secondary school is fully adhered to.
“As government, we are determined to fulfill our promise and ensure that every primary school pupil who sits for national exams joins secondary school. If that is our promise, why do you have to cheat?” President Kenyatta said.
He said the government continues to construct and equip technical and vocational institutions throughout the country to absorb those who finish their secondary education but are not able to join universities.
“There are some who will join universities. Others are gifted in other areas and will join the TVETS that we are building all over the country,” the President said.
