With the rising number of pupils enrolment in primary schools across the country, Kapseret Member of Parliament Oscar Sudi has commissioned several new classroom blocks aimed at ensuring enough space for learners.
On Friday, the MP opened a new classroom block at Kimalel Primary school.
Another block at Mwiruti Primary school was also commissioned.
According to the MP, he prioritized Mwiruti Primary school in a bid to accommodate the rising number of pupils in the expansive Langas estate.
The estate also has Langas Primary School which has arguably the highest number of pupils.
Already, the Kapseret National Government Constituency Development Fund (NG-CDF) has funded the construction of a one-story classroom block – that has been in use for over two years now.
“Due to the rising number of pupils in Langas, NG-CDF Kapseret Constituency prioritized Mwiruti primary school to benefit from the kitty,” Sudi said.
Mwiruti Secondary school also benefited from a classroom block.
Oscar Sudi later opened a Chief’s office at Pioneer estate, whose construction was funded by NG-CDF.
Speaking during the event, the legislator expressed the need for the government to consider ensuring chiefs and sub-chiefs have sufficient infrastructure which he said would help enhance their service delivery to the people.
“Local administration deserves a decent working environment just like other government staff. I urge the Ministry of Interior to build enough infrastructure for Chiefs and Sub Chiefs to promote efficiency in service delivery,” Oscar Sudi said.
The MP who is serving his second term is seeking a third term in the August 9 poll.
NG-CDF which was established under the NG-CDF Act of 2015 as amended in 2016 seeks to allow MPs to use the funds to address among others socio-economic development of the people at the constituency level in order to reduce poverty and enhance regional equity.
Each of the 290 constituencies receives Ksh100 million that goes towards funding projects in the education and security sectors among others.
