Bungoma County government to set up ICT hubs

14 October 2014, 23:01 Ben Wafula

Bungoma - Plans are complete for the Bungoma County government to set up Information and Communication Technology (ICT) hubs in the nine constituencies to enable resident’s access information and do research work.

Speaking at Friends School Kamusinga boys during the prayer day, the County Executive Committee member for education and ICT Beryl Mutekhele noted that the project will help residents  especially students access information technology which will make their work easier and faster.

 She stated that the ministry’s supplementary budget that is before the county assembly and once passed it will give a leeway for the set up of the ICT hubs in every constituency and it will be a source of employment.

The ICT centers will be a driving force that will employ youths with information in technology and it will be a project that will drive our economy,” said the CEC member.

She disclosed that so far the County government had gives out KES 18 0million bursary shillings every year and a large chunk of the kitty goes to bursaries for high school students.

“With the availability of the funds, students from poor backgrounds have completed their education,” She said

She called on Mps to take the full responsibilities of paying all the school fees for needy children using the Constituency development funds (CDF) and the County government will supplement using the bursary because it’s a collective responsibility.

“Tongaren constituency is a model area where the Mp has taken the initiative of settling all the school fees for the needy students hence giving them room to study and the rest of the constituencies should emulate the same,” said Mutekhele

She said that as the County government they only deal with Nursery and polytechnics but the basic education has not been devolved and it’s the function of the national government but they will still chip in where possible.

Deputy Governor Hillary Chongwony urged the candidates to work hard in order to excel in the national examination that will start soon.

“Succeeding in life is a sacrifice and I know all of you are expecting good results therefore work hard to earn excellent marks,” he advised.
