H.E. Governor Granton Samboja officially opened Mwanga ECDE, Rong’e Ward in a bid to boost education standards in the County.
Governor Samboja observed that the new classroom launched will offer conducive learning for nursery school pupils.
Governor Samboja took time off his busy schedule to spend an afternoon with the young ones, to whom he gifted masks, so they could protect themselves from coronavirus.
The County Boss told his cheerful Rong’e Ward audience, “ This inclusivity effort is to make sure children are also counted in my administration’s agenda.”
He added that the construction of the school’s infrastructure for the ECDE localises the global Sustainable Development Goal SDG 4 at the rural level.
“ The SDG targets to ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all. The best investment one can make is in the minds of the children,” the County Boss added.
The County Executive Committee Member CECM Education, Libraries and Vocational Training Centres VTCs Defence Manga noted how this institution reduces the number of kilometres children trek every day to reach school.
“ They walk 5 kilometres daily to get an education. Pre Primary PP1 and PP2 need not share the same class and blackboard, as was the case before, “ Hon Manga stated.
Area MCA Harris Keke noted the several development projects spearheaded by Governor Samboja’s administration.
The Governor concluded by saying,“ Good education prepares our children well for adult life.”
Later, still in Rong’e, Governor Samboja officially opened the Kighombo Dispensary Staff House and launched the Kighombo-Toki Toki Road, where he oversaw the road’s excavation.
He told his upbeat audience that they could enjoy better medical services at Kighombo Dispensary as the facility now had a new maternity bed and more pharmaceutical and non-pharmaceutical supplies.
Women groups received a donation of Ksh 30,000 from the County Boss so they could empower themselves economically.
In attendance were Governor’s PA Wilfred Mwalimo, MCA Harris Keke, County Chief Officer CCO Education Justus Singi, Director Raphael Chola, Chief of Protocol Amos Mkari Saleh, Administrator Governor’s Office Loice Shali, Mwatate Sub County Administrator Ruel Mwawasi, Chawia Ward Administrator Mercy Mwazo, Rong’e Ward Administrator George Mwanjala, First Lady Representative Margaret Kawuki, Sagala Ward Administrator Stanley Makeo, ECDE Supervisor Donata Kiwoi among other senior County officials.
