Uasin Gishu Governor Jackson Mandago EGH has called upon parents to take their children to school.
This, the Governor said will help to realize the 100% transition.
According to Mandago, all candidates who sat for the 2019 Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) examination must join secondary school.
“Even those who got 200 marks, let them join secondary school, when results were realized last month, we saw some who had 230 marks and got A. Let them join a secondary school and proceed,” said Mandago
He also noted that those who finished form four, the county of Uasin Gishu will ensure they continue with their education.
“We want a hundred percent transition. For those who didn’t get admitted to the university, there are courses offered by the government in various Technical Training Institute, which are very crucial. We have 6 TTI in the county,” he said.
The government is offering tuition fees of Ksh.30,000 and loans from the High Education Loan Board (HELB) of Kshs40,000.
“I ask the parents to let their children join those TTI institutions,” he noted.
Mandago further revealed that his administration will in this financial year subsidize seedlings of coffee, Avacado and Macadamia.
“Coffee seedlings go at Kshs.40 we will subsidize to Kshs.10, Avacado Kshs.250 to be subsidized to Sh100 and Macadamia goes at Kshs350 and will be subsidized to Kshs.150,” said Mandago.
